Kashmir police suspend two officials as video of interrogation of murder accused leaks on social media

In Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district police on Saturday suspended two of its officials after a video of interrogation was leaked on the social media platforms.

The case pertains to the murder of a man from the Pattan area of the north Kashmir district in March this year. Police had arrested the wife of the victim and her alleged paramour in connection with the murder.

An enquiry was also initiated against a station house officer after the video of brutal police interrogation surfaced on social media.

“A video purported to be of a police investigation/interrogation is doing rounds on social media. The same has been found to be pertaining to the blind murder case of March 2021 of PS (police station) Pattan which was solved last month. Both accused shown in the video had been arrested for the murder of the husband of the woman shown in the video,” a police official said.

He said the action in the video is “highly unprofessional and unbecoming of a disciplined police”.

“Two officials have been suspended for the same. An enquiry has been initiated against the SHO concerned and the supervisory officer has been reprimanded,” the official said.
