J&K As­sem­bly se­cu­rity breach: Five po­lice­men sus­pended


Five po­lice­men have been sus­pended for the se­cu­rity breach at the Jammu and Kash­mir As­sem­bly re­cently. Three unau­tho­rised young­sters had jumped into the well of the House shout­ing slo­gans against the Omar Ab­dul­lah government’s em­ploy­ment poli­cies.

The po­lice said that the three were iden­ti­fied as Manish Kha­juria, Sunny Mal­ho­tra and Ambed­kar Gupta. Sources say the youth had been is­sued passes on the rec­om­men­da­tion of MLA Jagdish Sapo­lia.

Speaker Mo­ham­mad Ak­bar Lone termed the in­ci­dent as con­tempt of the au­gust House and di­rected the Sec­re­tary of the Leg­isla­tive As­sem­bly to ini­ti­ate pro­ceed­ings against the of­fend­ers in­clud­ing the abet­tor (MLA). Lone said ac­tion will be taken against the youths as well as the MLA who had fa­cil­i­tated their en­try into the House.
