Sources said that stone pelting incidents have taken places in several parts of south Kashmir and including in Soura, Natipora, Safakadal, Badshah Nagar, Bemina, Sopore besides several parts since August 5 following the clampdown after abrogation of Article 370 and 35A and bifurcation of state by the centre.
Amid all this, the property (public and property) worth hundreds of crores of rupees have been destroyed including some government offices by vandalisers.
A senior police official posted in central Kashmir said police have registered cases for destroying the public and private property during the ongoing crisis in the Valley. He said police was ascertaining the details of the damaged property during the ongoing unrest and cases were being registered under Sections 148 (rioting), 427 (mischief), 336 (endangering life of others).
"Mostly FIRs have been registered under sections 436 and 427 RPC for destroying public property during the ongoing unrest in Kashmir," the official said.
He said in some cases arrests have been made but in most of the cases, police was yet to identify the accused. The official said the police was collecting the CCTV footages and details across the Valley from other sources to identify the people involved in destroying the public property.
"Presently we are busy in dealing with the law and order problem situation in the Valley. We will know exact details about the damaged property and those involved in these acts once normalcy prevails in the Valley," he said.
Sources said scores of youth are on the run as police have identified hundreds of youth who have been allegedly part of the stone pelting incidents and destroying public property for the last 18 days.
There are reports that police have been pressurizing many families to handover their boys who have been allegedly part of stone pelting incidents. Fearing arrest, scores of youths in various areas have left their homes to evade the arrest.
A senior official said whoever has vandalised the property or disturbed the law and order in the Valley would be dealt as per the law. "We are identifying them through various means and action will be taken accordingly," he said.
