Tiff between police officers

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Apr 14: In a petition filed by Mohd Aslam, DySP Headquarter Reasi, against whom FIR was registered at the behest of the senior police officers, State High has issued notice to then SSP and Additional SP Reasi and SHO Police Station Reasi returnable within four weeks and restrained the respondents from presenting challan against the petitioner till further directions.
According to the petitioner, he was transferred from Kathua to DySP Headquarter Reasi on March 30, 2011 and before his joining, then SSP Reasi divested his charge and assigned the same to Additional SP Reasi.
The petitioner made repeated requests for assigning the charge to him but all in vain as the SSP had old personal grudge against the petitioner. On December 8, 2011, then SSP Reasi issued a deployment order for security arrangement in connection with the visit of Dr Farooq Abdullah at Sports Stadium Reasi on December 10, 2011.
In the order, petitioner was asked to ensure the deployment inside and outside the stadium besides other duties specifically mentioned therein. In compliance to the deployment order, the petitioner entered the main VVIP gate of the Stadium for identifying the location for parking ambulance but the Additional SP did not allow him to enter the stadium on the ground that he has not been assigned any duty in the deployment order.
The Additional SP directed her body-guards, driver, wireless operator and other policemen to throw the petitioner out of the stadium and locked the VVIP gate. On this, Head Constable Charanjeet Singh and Selection Grade Constable Subash Chander assaulted the petitioner. On this, the petitioner requested the SSP to initiate legal action against the Additional SP and other culprits but all in vain.
Instead the respondents joined hands and registered a false and frivolous FIR against the petitioner and arrested him. He was even given severe thrashing in the police lock-up.
After hearing Advocate Sheikh Altaf Hussain appearing for the petitioner, Justice Mansoor Ahmed Mir issued notices to the respondents and restrained them from presenting final report of the investigation till further directions from the Court.
