Police have booked ten PDP leaders and activists including former minister A R Veeri and party President Mehbooba Mufti’s uncle Sartaj Madni for organizing a rally on the 6th death anniversary of former J&K Chief Minister and Mehbooba’s father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in “violation of COVID Appropriate Behavior” on Friday.

In a communique shot to SHO Bijbehara, Tehsildar Bijbehara said that the accused Abdul Rahman Bhat Veeri, former minister, Javaid Ahmad Sheikh, Najmu Saqib, Sartaj Madni, Mehbooba’s maternal uncle, Majid Ahmad Khan, Abdul Majeed Rangraiz, Showkat Ahmad Teeli, Mufti Sarwar, Arshid Ahmad Ganie and Nazir Ahmad Vaid organized a “large gathering on August 7 at the tomb of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in Bijbhera in complete violation of SOPs and covid-19 appropriate behaviour which result in the spread of Covid-19 and other related epidemics.”

Confirming the development, Tehsildar Bijbehara, Ghulam Hassan Bhat told Greater Kashmir that the case FIR 4 of 2022 pertains to violation of COVID SOPs and “other allied matters”, which he did not substantiate.

According to the sources, the case has been registered under IPC sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 269 (unlawfully or negligently act likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life).

PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti while reacting to the development, alleged bias against the party.

“COVID-19 restrictions apply only to PDP. Not to BJP’s protest in Kashmir yesterday, PM’s rally in Punjab or the mass poojas attended by hundreds of people to pray for his safety. Talks volumes about J&K admin’s brazen bias against my party,” she said in a tweet.

Jammu & Kashmir Health Department has started a special drive to identify people who have received the COVID vaccination certificate despite being administered with only one dose. In each case, authorities are collecting inputs from such beneficiaries and ensuring the actual administration of vaccines to each at the earliest. At the same time, the Department has issued strict and necessary instructions in this manner to avoid such incidents in future.
During the campaign mode of covid vaccination such isolated incidents of unintentional wrong entries have happened because of the sudden increase in data uploads into the Cowin portal and unintentional mistakes by support staff. It may be mentioned that Jammu and Kashmir have administered close to 2 crore doses and is the forerunner in the country in vaccinating its eligible population. Such cases constitute a microscopic minority, maybe in single digits.
In a recent incident, it was noticed that two beneficiaries aged 51 and 49, belonging to Block Sogam, District Kupwara, were inadvertently marked as vaccinated with a second dose as of 11th September 2021, while actually, they were yet to receive their second dose physically. Upon identification of the cases, immediate arrangements to administer missed vaccine doses at the beneficiaries’ homes were made.
