Suspected militants thrashed policemen posted for security at Jammu and Kashmir’s Advocate General Jehangir Iqbal Ganaie’s ancestral house in Anantnag district last night after finding that the guards had no weapons.

According to a news agency PTI, a group of four militants barged into Ganaie’s residence in Mattan area of the south Kashmir district late last night looking for weapons, but could not find any weapons there.

“Four gunmen entered my residence. I think there must have been two to three outside also. I do not know how it happened but these persons (militants) directly entered the house as the main door was open,” the Advocate General told PTI.

However, after they couldn’t find weapons there, the militants also had a verbal quarrel with his parents.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
