ational Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah said on Sunday said that an adverse police report cannot be a substitute for being found guilty in a court of law.
“An ”adverse police report” can not be a substitute for being found guilty in a court of law. A year and a half ago J&K police were able to create an ”adverse police report” to justify my detention under the Public Safety Act that would never have stood up to legal challenge,” Omar tweeted.
Junior Abdullah’s remarks came a day after the CID wing of the Jammu and Kashmir Police ordered the denial of security clearance required for passport and other government services to all those involved in stone-pelting or subversive activities.
“They did the same with scores of others, many of whom had these police reports tossed out by the courts. An executive order cannot replace a court of law. Guilt or innocence must be proven in court & not based of vague unproven police reports,” he added.
