DHAR POLICE arrested a Kashmiri youth, Gulam Mohammad son of Gulam Rasool (68) resident of Gulgam, district Kupwara, when he was inciting Muslims outside the Bhojshala by saying that they were cowards and did not have the courage to fight.
Dhar police promptly picked him up and booked him under Section 153 (B) for spreading communal disharmony among the people.
What alarmed the police was that he had in his possession an old map of the city and also that of the historic Bhojshala. Gulam had been staying in Dhar for the past one and half months, sometimes at Kamaluddin Dargah situated in the Bhojshala complex or at the Borwali Masjid.Dhar SP Praveen Mathur said that they were trying to establish his antecedents.
During questioning, Gulam Mohammad said that he had lost his wife and son during a police firing in Kupwara in 1991, and since then he has been wandering around the country selling shawls and other goods. Mathur said that they had seized a diary from his possession and were confirming the numbers noted in it.
