Srinagar: Terming the arrest and disengagement of a woman Special Police Officer (SPO) in Kulgam, Communist Party of India (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Targami said it was decision taken in haste.
In a statement, he said that instead of lodging FIR and taking harsh measures, such incidents must be dealt with persuasion.
Apparently, this incident is an outburst of anger and should have not been dealt with harshly, he said in a statement Friday afternoon.
He alleged harassment of common people is the reason for such incidents.
It is high time that law enforcing agencies have a re-look at the situation and ensure common people are not harassed as its results are not positive, Tarigami said.
