Sopore: Internet was snapped in Sopore on Wednesday morning without any apparent reason.
As many were speculating about the possible reasons, Jammu and Kashmir Police has issued a surprising statement to explain the situation.
Here is the statement:
On 15-09-2020, at about 12:45 hours, one over-ground worker (OGW) namely Irfan Ahmad Dar (age about 23/24 years) S/O Mohammad Akbar Dar R/O Sidiq-Colony, Sopore was apprehended and two Chinese hand grenades were recovered from his possession.
In this regard, a case under FIR No. 257/2020 U/S 18 ULA (P) Act, 7/27 A. Act was registered in Police Station Sopore and investigation taken up.
During the course of investigation, a police team visited Chairdaji area of Tujjar-Sharief along with the OGW for affecting some more recovery on his disclosure.
In the meanwhile, the OGW, while taking advantage of darkness and terrain, managed to escape regarding which a separate case under FIR No. 71/2020 U/S 224 IPC was registered in Police Station Bomai. During search the body of OGW was found near a stone quarry at Tujjar-Sharief.
Accordingly the body was taken to the nearby Public Health Centre and later shifted to Police Control Room Kashmir Hospital for fulfilling medical and other legal formalities and final disposal.
