Srinagar: After a Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) was allegedly beaten up by the Army, former IAS officer Shah Faesal, while demanding immediate action, hoped that Armed Forces Special Power Act (AFSPA) won’t come in the way of taking action against the erring officer.
While expressing shock, Faesal, in a tweet said:
News of physical assault on SDM Duroo by Army is very shocking.
If true, DC/SSP Anantnag should immediately register an FIR and arrest the erring personnel.
It is hoped that AFSPA won’t come in the way of IPC/RPC and the action will be taken.
