SRINAGAR — Jammu and Kashmir Police have booked Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP’s) District President Bandipora and his Sarpanch associate for allegedly collecting Rs one lakh from a woman in lieu of getting her incarcerated brother released. The money has also been seized by the Police, official sources said.

They said that BJP’s District President for Bandipora, Abdul Rehman Tikri along with his “accomplice”, a Sarpanch identified as Mushtaq Ahmad of Darmahama, had demanded and accepted Rs 1 lakh from the woman Miss Anjum Khursheed in lieu of releasing her incarcerated brother Aqib Khursheed from jail.

Meanwhile, a police official while confirming the incident told GNS that a case (FIR №64) under Section 420 IPC (cheating) stands registered against the accused and investigations are underway.

He said that the money was also seized from the accused duo and both were later released after thorough questioning as they produced an anticipatory bail.
