Following an altercation between a Pandit family and a Muslim family at Kulgam, the DM Kulgam today visited the spot to assess the ground realities and initiate necessary measures in this regard.

According to an official statement, “the scuffle had taken place between the two families over some piece of land which was wrongly represented in the social media.”

While talking to the media, the DM said that FIR 182/2017 dated 19.10.17 has already been lodged and consequent arrests have been made.

The statement said that Avatar Krishen, a retired government employee told the DM that he was constructing a building “when some people obstructed the work due to land dispute. I am expecting the administration to provide me justice. I have been living here since my childhood and have never migrated. Rest, we are living as a community with peace and tranquillity".

Meanwhile, the DM called upon the SP Kulgam to speed up the investigation process and book the miscreants who have tried to vitiate the communal harmony in the district by posting misinformation on social media. 

He also directed the revenue officers to sort out the land dispute at an earliest.
