Rasheed accuses police of thrashing minor girl in Kupwara

Srinagar, July 21: Accusing Jammu and Kashmir police of spreading a reign of “terror” in Awoora and
adjoining areas, MLA Langate Er Rasheed on Saturday asked the state police chief to take stern action
against those who ransacked many houses in Awoora Kupwara and created havoc resulting in critical injuries
to twelve-year-old Ruhee Jan daughter of Nazir Ahmad Khan.
Ruhee Jan daughter of Nazir Ahmad Khan, a resident of Awoora Kupwara
“While entire population of Awoora and adjoining villages were in deep shock after the brutal murder of 10-
year-old Omar Farooq, cops entered the houses of protesting villagers in Awoora and crossed all limits.
There can be no justification for beating and thrashing twelve-year-old Ruhee to the extent that she had to
be shifted first to Kupwara and then to SMHS Hospital. An incident is an act of shame and disgrace for state
police and the top cops should know that their goons didn’t spare even a pregnant lady at Awoora inside her
house and thrashed her,” the spokesman quoted Er Rasheed as saying.
Rasheed on Saturday morning visited SMHS Hospital Srinagar to know about the well-being of twelve-year-
old Ruhee Jan daughter of Nazir Ahmad Khan Resident of Awoora Kupwara.
