A Kashmiri youth riding a motorcycle suffered an assault after he was embroiled in an incident of road rage on Thursday night.

The youth, Jibraan Nazir Dar, in his tweet addressed to Pune Police Commissioner K Venakatesham said, “I find no reason to believe that the attack on me last night because I am from Kashmir was an organized one.

While Dar informed the police, he did not wish to file a police complaint. The police, however, suo motu lodged an FIR.

Ashok Kadam, police Inspector, Swargate Police station, said “This was an incident of road rage and not of a dispute of Kashmiri origin.
