Badamwari incident: 20 youth arrested for creating ruckus  

Srinagar: Police on Thursday claimed to have arrested 20 youth for creating a ruckus during a musical event organized by the Tourism Department at famous Badamwari garden in the summer capital, Srinagar.

A police official said that a musical event was organised in Badamwari garden on March 28, 2021. “The musical event witnessed huge gathering of people, including very large number of women and children,” he said.

He said a group of miscreants created a ruckus on the stage when the demand of a song from a boy among the audience was not fulfilled immediately by the performing artistes. “Police used maximum restraint to restore order as the use of any kind of force would have created a stampede like situation at the venue,” he said.

In this regard, he said a case FIR No 11/2021 at Police Station Rainawari was registered. “During investigation, involvement of 20 miscreants was established, who were identified through different videos of the event,” he said, adding all the accused were arrested.

He said the investigation of the case is underway and more arrested could happen in coming days.
