SRINAGAR, NOV 17: J&K Police have strongly denied reports that three Jammu and Kashmir political leaders were manhandled today while being shifted to a detention centre in Srinagar.
The three leaders Sajjad Lone, Shah Faisal and Waheed Para were among 34 being detained at Centaur Hotel and were being moved to the MLA Hostel because the facility lacked proper heating.
The response from Police Officer came after allegations of manhandling were levelled by Iltija Mufti, daughter of former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, via her mother's Twitter account.
"Apropos some twitter handle claiming manhandling of some people at MLA hostel Srinagar, it is hereby clarified that no such incident has taken place. Mandatory security drills were followed as required for lodgement," senior J&K cop Imtiyaz Hussain wrote on Twitter.
