A Jammu and Kashmir policeman was arrested on Saturday after people suspected him of stalking and taking photographs of a girl on a street at Manigram in Ganderbal district.

Videos and photos circulating on social media show residents catching the constable, taking off his jacket, and tying him to a chair.

They alleged that the constable hurt the dignity of a woman.

“We registered an FIR and he was arrested soon after. Law will take its course,” senior superintendent of police Fayaz Ahmad Lone told reporters.

Police claimed to have found some photos of the woman in the constable’s mobile.

A clip shows a screaming crowd vowing to teach a lesson to anyone caught hurting a woman’s dignity. Slogans against police and in support of slain militant commander Zakir Musa could be heard in the videos.
