Srinagar, May 31 (PTI) An FIR has been lodged against BJP leader and district development council (DDC) Srinagar member Aijaz Hussain Rather for alleged wrongful restraint and voluntarily causing hurt after two persons registered a complaint against him, police said on Wednesday.
The police lodged the FIR on Tuesday after a complaint by Nazim Hussain Bhat and Imdad Ali Mir.
“On the basis of complaint lodged by Nazim Hussain Bhat & Imdad Ali Mir, FIR no 51/2023 u/s 323,341 of IPC dated 30.05.2023 registered in Panthachowk PS against DDC member Aijaz Hussain Rather on offences of wrongful restraint & voluntarily causing hurt,” the Srinagar Police said on Twitter.
