In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, police in Srinagar on Monday seized hundreds of bikes for unspecified reasons.
Media houses received calls from people complaining that police station Saheed Gunj in the vicinity of the old secretariat had seized their bikes for “no reason”. They said that over 100 bikes had been seized by the police station.
“Police are seizing bikes without specifying any reason,” said Ghulam Qadir Wani, one of the bikers. “Several people are waiting here as their bikes are seized. I work with the service sector, I was carrying some material on my bike, now the material is lying on the ground as my bike has been seized by police,” he added.
Another biker, whose bike was seized by the Shaheed Gunj police station, said that police attempted to beat them when they tried to inquire the reason for the seizure of their bikes.
“They told us to bring bikes inside the police station even though I have all the documents.
We are not told about the reason why our bikes were seized,” said Junaid Firdous, who works with a medical agency.—KMS
