Corporator Accuses Deputy Mayor Of Physical Assault, Says Parvez Qadri Misusing His Personal Security

SRINAGAR: Accusing Srinagar Deputy Mayor of ‘misusing’ his security provided by the Home Department, a Corporator Monday claimed that he was physically manhandled and assaulted by Deputy Mayor for raising objection over land grabbing in Rainawari area of Srinagar.

Corporator Jogi Lankar Rainawari Asif Beigh told news agency Kashmir News Trust that he raised his voice against land grabbers which didn’t go down well with Deputy Mayor Parvez Qadri.

“First his brother threatened me of dire consequences and then Deputy Mayor himself slapped and manhandled me in the premises of Srinagar Municipal Corporation. In this illegal act, his security personnel supported him,” Beigh alleged.

Divulging information about the incident, Asif Beigh said that a National Conference leader has grabbed land meant for public.

“The land is meant for the public park but NC supporters shield their leader. My hue and cry about the land grabbing in Rainawari infuriated Deputy Mayor who attacked me in broad day light. I suffered injuries and was not able to even walk and lodge a police complaint against the Deputy Mayor,” Beigh said.

“Not only Deputy Mayor assaulted me but he abused me in front of everyone. I have never heard such abuses in my whole life. He stooped so low to safeguard the interests of his party leader,” he said.

Beigh said Deputy Mayor is misusing his security including SSB men to threaten people.

“My only fault is that I object to the corrupt practices in the Corporation. Multiple FIRs stand registered against the Deputy Mayor. I appeal DG Police and Anti-Corruption Bureau to investigate corruption cases against Parvez Qadri,” Beigh said.

Meanwhile, Beigh gave vent to his anger by writing a post on facebook. He wrote that land mafia had encroached a park at Kralyar Rainawari that has been retrieved and a park for people will be built. He said even though corrupt people attacked him at SMC as they have vested interests who resort to loot and grabbed land. He said he is surprised why ACB, CIK and CID is not acting against the corrupt.

Efforts to contact Deputy Mayor didn’t materialize, as he didn’t respond to repeated phone calls. (KNT)
