On Saturday, the youngsters of Kathua protested against Kathua Police and blocked the road. According to the youngsters, the SHO has misbehaved with the Councillor. A police party tried to resolve the matter, but the protestors didn’t agree. The Councillor demanded that the SHO apologize for his actions in front of the media or be suspended.
While talking to the media, a Sarpanch said, “yesterday’s incident was very shameful. The people elected the Councillor, and the SHO dragged him like an offender. The locals were protesting only to demand their rights. They were not doing anything illegal. We criticize the incident and demand that the SHO should be suspended. If he treats the Councillor this way, then how he treats the common public”.
