Says if Youth feels being harassed, should come forward and provide his version
Several FIRs already against the Youth
Police on Thrusday issued a statement after a Video went viral in which a Youth alleged of being harassed by the police.
The police said that this is in reference to a certain video shared by a resident of Baramulla on social media and lapped up by vested interests and handles.
The statement further stated that If the youth is being harassed, he is most welcome to come forward and provide his version. Instead he has gone incognito and is giving out videos on social media. He can approach any authority he trusts.
He was summoned to police station for routine questioning as he is involved in multiple FIRs. He asked for a few minutes to add layers of warm clothing in front of his family and he jumped out and ran through a window. There are thousands of youth who approach us whenever they feel harassed by anyone and everyone reposes high faith and trust in Baramulla Police. We counsel youth, even when they have made mistakes and people are witness and appreciative of it, he said.
Publishing videos while on the run is trying to be over smart. If it is harassment, we invite him to make a formal complaint before any higher authority or wherever he feels. There is no need to run, reads the statement. (GNS)
