Srinagar, December 31 (KNO) : A day after four AK-47 rifles were looted by suspected militants were looted from official residence of Congress legislator Muzaffar Ahmad Parray, the four cops guarding his residence were on Monday dismissed from services for ‘dereliction' of duty. Pertinently on Sunday, suspected militants decamped with four AK-47 rifles from the guard room at the official residence of Parray at J-13, Government Quarters at Jawahar Nagar. Officials told KNO that four cops deployed as PSOs with Parray have been dismissed from service for 'dereliction of duties and unauthorized absence'. They said that all the four policemen -three from the security wing and another from Sopore district police -posted at Parray’s residence were earlier summoned for questioning besides ordering an enquiry in this regard. The MLC has said that he was in Jammu from past one month along with his family. Pertinently, this was the second such incident since September when a PSO of PDP leader decamped with seven AK rifles and one pistol from his residence in Srinagar. Similarly, the PDP leader was also not present at his residence and was in Jammu at that time. The SPO who decamped with the weapons later joined militant ranks.(KNO)
