Srinagar, November 01 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, police chief, Pulwama, Chowdhary Muhammad Aslam has contradicted the claim of Inspector General of Police, Munir Ahmed Khan that three FIRs have been registered against the freelance photographer, Kamran Yousuf, arrested by the India’s National Investigation Agency on allegations of stone pelting.

Chowdhary Muhammad Aslam in a media interview in Srinagar said that there was no case registered against Kashmir Yousuf.

“…[There] are certain FIRs registered against others where we are trying to establish if he had any role. That is being verified. We are investigating a video uploaded by him of [the Indian flag] being burnt by protestors in Kareemabad village of Pulwama district,” the SSP said.

Inspector General of Police, Munir Ahmed Khan, while talking to media persons in Srinagar had claimed that police had arrested Kamran on charges of stone pelting before handing him over to the NIA. “There are two-three FIRs registered against Yousuf,” he added.

However, SSP Chowdhary Muhammad Aslam contradicted Khan’s claim, saying there is no case registered against Kamran Yousuf. He added that there was only one case registered against the photojournalist for uploading on Facebook a video of burning of Indian flag.

“There is no other case directly registered against him…,” he said. According to him, the NIA cases against Kamran have nothing to do with the cases filed by the police. “We are carrying out our own investigation separately,” he added.

Kamran Yousuf, who freelanced as a photojournalist from Pulwama district, was airlifted to Delhi on by the NIA September 5 in connection with false cases registered against him.
