Police have arrested four men of village Shishkat and launched FIR against them on charges of being involved in an alleged offense that took place in June this year. The men have been identified as Saleem, 25, Muhammad Ali, 22, Naib Shah, 20 and Faheem, 18.
Residents of Shishkat village have said that the SHO of Sost Police station arrested the men on allegations that they had molested a man from Nagar Valley and videotaped the episode after finding him in an immoral behaviour in the village. They further stated that the SHO has falsely claimed that he has found a copy of the videotape of the alleged incident.
Meanwhile, people of Shishkat and others have strongly condemned the arrest of the young villagers and have termed it as “a move to create unrest in Hunza-Nagar.”
The arrested men have been shifted to Ali Abad where they are in police custody.
Protestors in Shishkat have demanded immediate release of the men and removal of the charges against them. They alleged that police are torturing the men in their custody.
