Troopers thrash chicken seller, maul his poultry
Srinagar: Para-military troopers Saturday thrashed a chicken seller, mauled his poultry and damaged his cell phone in Saidakadal-Rainawari stretch of Srinagar city.
The Chicken seller accused the CRPF men of thrashing him without any reason.
“Some youth pelted stones on them (CRPF) and in return they pounced upon me, hit my head with gun butts, broke my cell phone and put some of my poultry birds to death,” the chicken seller said.
“I have been running this chicken shop from past 15 years and never indulged in an act that could go against law. This time, I was targeted for none of my fault,” he said.
The chicken seller whose video is also viral on social media said it is an irony that in a fit of rage these troopers killed my poultry birds as well.
“I talked to police and they assured action. After beating me, these CRPF men threatened me of dire consequence. Those who pelted stones fled away from the scene and these troopers targeted me while I was busy selling chickens,” he said.
Srinagar based CRPF Spokesperson, Pankaj Singh, when contacted said that they will ascertain the facts. (KNT)
