Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir police are questioning two BSF men after they arrested a civilian when he was trying to steal a riffle from the Personal Security Officer (PSO) of Gujjar and Bakerwal leader at Khanbabal Housing Colony in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Thursday.
Manzoor Ahmad Bhat tried to steal a riffle of PSO Bashir Ahmad when he entered his room. Sources said Bhat concealed the weapon in
