“In 2008, I was student of class 10 and also doing part time job in a private hospital. I have never been part of any protest or stone pelting,” he said. He added that in 2008 he was sitting pillion while his friend Farooq Ahmad was riding Dar’s bike. “Clashes were going on and paramilitary CRPF men were chasing people at Veer Chattabal.
As we reached near CRPF men, they stopped us and started beating us.
