Allegations that Army personnel from Tral beat up members of a family at Seer are baseless. No search of any house or manhandling of anyone was carried out by Army at Seer on the night of 27/ 28 Sep 21. In the evening of 27 Sep 21, an Army night domination party had gone to village Seer. While moving near Arapal Nala which passes through the village, they spotted two persons sitting next to the Nala. The two individuals were called and when they were being questioned, an individual named Ali Mohd Chopan and his family members came out of their house, which was nearby. As soon as they came out of the house, Ishrat Jaan, daughter of Ali Mohd Chopan, feigned fainting and the family members started shouting. They called other villagers also and started blaming Army for ransacking the house and beating the girl. It is reiterated that Army personnel were not close to the house or to the girl when she feigned fainting. It may be noted that Ali Mohd Chopan is father of Shabir Ahmad Chopan, presently in jail under PSA for providing logistic support to terrorists. The family is also related to slain JeM terrorist Abdul Hamid Chopan r/o Luragam who was killed on 21 Aug 2021 in Nagaberan during an operation. The family was also providing logistic support to slain Jaish terrorist Saifulla @ Lamboo, killed on 31 Jul 2021. In the recent months, Security Forces have carried out a number of successful operations neutralising Jaish terrorists and severely impacting their network in Tral. This orchestrated allegation was expected from terrorists' supporters to impede the relentless operations by Security Forces aimed at ensuring peace in the Valley. Necessary complaints are being filed with J&K Police against people who are spreading rumours and feeding false information to disrupt peace and incite citizens against Indian Army.
