Police halts ambulance ferrying slain youth
SRINAGAR: Police stopped an ambulance ferrying the body of one of the slain youths of Chadoora, Budgam, at Jehangir Chowk here and took the custody of the body despite stiff opposition by the relatives.
The relatives of the slain youth Zahid Rashid Ganai that included his brother and uncle were not ready to allow police to take the possession of the body, witnesses said. “See, they are not sparing even the dead. Why should we allow the police to take the body,” the brother of slain Zahid shouted.
As the news spread in the area, many youth raised slogans forcing police to fire a few tear gas shells. However, police managed to take away the body to nearby Police Control Room (PCR). A video of the incident instantly went viral on social media.
