Gulmit, April 30: A group of youngsters has beaten a member of the special force deputed for security of the Chinese workers, in Gulmit. The police official has been transferred, with immediate effect, to another station on orders of the force’s superintendent. According to reports, the youngsters had complained against unnecessary interference of that particular irrelevant official in the examination hall, where girl students were also writing exam papers.
Apparently the official tried to frighten the youth with his official powers. However, this show of force costed him dearly as the frustrated group of youth roughed him up. It is being said that the examiner brings irrelevant office bearers of the Tehsil administration to the examination hall, in violation of the rules of examination which allow only designated invigilators to be inside the examination hall.
Local people have termed the incident as unfortunate and have appealed to the security officials to be sensitive toward local norms and customs. (PT report)
