Police says investigating the matter

Jammu: Police on Saturday launched investigations amid reports of damage to a streetlight and splinters marks on wall of a house of a former MLA at Lassana in Surankote area of Poonch district.

Official sources said that the house belongs to ex-MLA Surankote Choudhary Mohammad Akram and falls close to a jungle area.

They said preliminary investigations suggest that splinter marks were seen on the walls which were caused by pellets from a 12-bore rifle. “Further investigations are underway,” they said. While no one was injured in the incident, it has led to panic among locals.

A police officer said that investigators are inquiring all possible angles. “Since the house is in close vicinity to a jungle, it could be case of hunter shots hitting the house or there could be other possibilities. We are investigating all the angles,” he added. (GNS)
