PDP MLA slaps Marshal
A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) legislator allegedly slapped a Marshal in the Jammu & Kashmir legislative assembly on Wednesday.
The PDP legislator from Rajpora constituency, Syed Bashir Ahmed, alleged that the government was trying to shield sexual assault accused former state minister Shabir Khan against whom an FIR was lodged in Srinagar.
He alleged that the government in a planned way has changed the Investigating Officer who was investigating the case and it is an indication that government wants to give clean chit to the tainted leader.
Syed Bashir Ahmed stormed into Well of the Assembly and created unruly scenes there.
As the Speaker directed Marshals to drag him out of the Well, the legislator allegedly slapped one of the Marshals.
