J&K: Man caught roaming suspiciously outside PCR in Srinagar; detained
The Jammu & Kashmir Police today briefly detained a man after he was caught on CCTV camera roaming in a suspicious manner outside the highly-fortified Police Control Room (PCR) premises in Srinagar.
He was, however, later let off as nothing adverse surfaced against him, police said.
The CCTV footage showed the man, carrying a bag, roaming around the PCR's main gate at Batamaloo.
Man was traced and detained for questioning: Police
"Yesterday, a man was found suspiciously roaming outside the Police Control Room," a police spokesman said, adding that the same person was again seen with a bag later in the day. "The said person was traced and detained for questioning," the spokesman added.
Police did not find anything adverse against the person
The police, however, said nothing adverse surfaced against him after he was detained and questioned.
"During the course of questioning, nothing adverse surfaced with regard to him," the spokesman said.
He said the news reports by some television channels linking the individual to some militant outfit were "factually incorrect".
"Media is requested to seek official confirmation before running such news," the spokesman said.
