Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, July 14: High Court today directed the security agency to consider the claim of the former MLC and member of Indian National Congress (INC) for providing him security in view of threat perception.
The petition was moved by the former Member of Legislative Counsel (MLC) and member of Indian National Congress (INC) Mohammad Muzafar Parray seeking security for protection of his life and restoration of vehicle earlier provided to him.
He submitted that while holding the office of MLC he was provided with ‘Z’ category security in the militancy affected areas and ‘Y’ category security in rest of areas of the J&K. However the same was withdrawn by the authorities along with the vehicle provided to him.
