A Block Development Council member has allegedly attempted to end his life as he was not allowed to move outside the hotel accommodation for security reasons. The BDC members in the past have protested. According to the BDCs, in the name of security reasons, the police were not allowing them to go home or meet their family or the people who have elected them. As per the reports, the condition of BDC is stable, and he has been sent home.

As per our sources, Ashaq Hussain Hurrah, affiliated with Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party of Magam in Baramulla district, attempted to end his life at hotel Shuria Afaq in Humhama, Budgam, during the intervening night.

While talking to the media, Ashaq said, “I am living in Baramulla district but have been kept for the last one year in a hotel in Budgam. Instead of Budgam, I should have accommodation in the Baramulla district. I am facing a traumatic situation as I cannot meet my two kids and wife. We are public representatives, but the government has reduced our mandate to mere hosting flags on August 15 and January 26. “I have put forward my resignation twice because I am not able to go to the Deputy Commissioner where I can put out my resignation papers,” he added.

The police have filed an FIR number 178 against the BDC member under section 309 of IPC in Budgam police station.
