Searches, frisking return to Tral, Awantipora » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, June 10 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, random searches and frisking by the Indian forces have returned to the hilly areas of Tral and Awantipora in Pulwama district causing inconvenience to the local people in the holy month of Ramadan.

Indian Army’s Rashtriya Rifles, police and paramilitary forces check vehicles and frisk pedestrians at different places on Tral-Awantipora road, every now and then.

The locals said that men in uniform conducted frisking of travelers, demanding identity cards and forcing the passengers to disembark from the vehicles which caused problems to locals especially patients visiting hospitals. “Commuters were forced to wait for hours together in queues after they were de-boarded from the vehicles,” said an eyewitness.

“They are stopping vehicles and frisking travelers near Nowdal CRPF camp,” said Abdul Ahad, a local resident. “What is the point of announcing ceasefire when people are made to suffer like this on the roads,” he questioned.
