Woman police officer held in Jammu and Kashmir for obstructing search operations | India News – GoIndiaNews

SRINAGAR: A woman police officer in Jammu and Kashmir was arrested and disengaged from service for obstructing a search operation in a bid to nab terrorists in an area where she lived. She was booked under UAPA.
Her house was also searched as a part of the operation on Wednesday in Karewa Mohalla of Frisal village in Kulgam district of south Kashmir following specific inputs on possible presence of terrorists in the area.
Police on Friday said that it has disengaged a woman special operation officer from service and arrested her for glorifying militancy and obstructing government official from doing his duty.
In a statement, the police said that during the course of the search, the search party was obstructed by the woman — identified as Saima Akhter — a resident of Frisal. She was later identified as a special police officer (SPO) working in the police department, the statement added.
Saima, according to the police, resisted the search party and turned violent and uttered words that could have incited terrorists. She shot a video on her personal cellphone as well and posted it on social media platforms with the “aim of attracting violence.”
A case under Sections 353 of IPC, 13 of UAPA has been registered at the Yaripora police station and an investigation has begun, the statement said.
PDP president and former J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti termed the police action as “cruel”.
“Saima Akhter from Kulgam has been slapped with UAPA for raising legitimate questions about searching her home repeatedly without any reason. Saima’s ailing mother understandably exacerbated her worries. When it comes to cruelty even women aren’t spared in Naya Kashmir,” Mehbooba tweeted.
