Early Times Report
Jammu, May 19: The May 16 killing of Naeem Shah (52) in Jammu's Bhaderwah, which led to large-scale violence, clashes and attack on the police station in the town, has created an awkward situation for National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party .
Both parties had almost held the "cow vigilantes" responsible for the killing of Naeem Shah and made it a big issue. They used the issue to taunt and tarnish the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In fact, they sought to create an impression that "minorities" were unsafe under the Modi regime.
However, it was none other than the Jammu & Kashmir Police that came out vehemently denying what it called "the unfounded reports of cow vigilantes having killed a man named Nayeem Shah in Badarwah area of the state when he was reportedly transporting cattle". The police refuted the reports a day later. Not just this, the police administration also condemned the "irresponsible" reporting of the sensitive issue and rebutted that "no such information about cow vigilantism had been ascertained so far in the investigations'.
On Saturday, the district administration also debunked the charge leveled by "vested interests" that "cow vigilantes killed Naeem Shah and injured two others" and said that "cow vigilantism was not the reason behind the killing of Naeem Shah". And to find out the whole truth, the administration set up a 6-member SIT.
Owing to the uproar and violence erupted in Bhadrwah and other areas because of the spread of the fake news, the officials had to impose a curfew in Bhaderwah town of the Doda district of Jammu province & Kashmir to keep the law and order situation in check.
The Army was also called in to assist the civil administration to contain the situation on the ground, while authorities had to suspend mobile internet services to stop the spreading of instigating posts and pictures.
In the meantime, the J&K Police have detained 15 people for questioning in connection with the murder and violence that gripped Bhadrwah in the aftermath of the murder.
