The victim, Dr Muzaffar Ahmed, who looks the entire Covid-19 work in Budgam and is a renowned Epidemiologist, said that he was walking by foot to catch a vehicle for Budgam, when in Chadoora market, he was stopped at a barricade by CRPF personnel. “Despite revealing my identity, the troopers hit me with batons, dragged me on the road, kicked my chest and it was only after the intervention of some locals that they left me and I was rushed to District Hospital Budgam. I have suffered bone injuries,” he said.
Taking strong note of the incident, Chief Medical Officer Dr Tajamul said that these troopers are over ruling the directions of Police Chief Dilbagh Singh who has directed them not to stop any health worker. “The unfortunate part is that we can’t go for even a strike as the situation doesn’t allow us.
