Farmers protest against CRPF after paddy fields get inundated in Kokernag

Anantnag, July 28: After getting their paddy fields inundated due to rise in water level, several farmers staged a protest against CRPF urging authorities to remove the boundary wall created by CRPF personnel around their camp at Vailoo Kokarnag area of South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

Local sources said that after the massive rainfall, water level went up in water canal for agricultural land at Vailoo, Kokarnag.

They said the passage of the water got blocked due to concertina wire near boundary wall of CRPF Camp which changed the course and seeped into the paddy fields.

Farmers of the village hit to roads and staged a protest seeking removal of concertina wire and boundary wall of the camp.

Local sources said that Sub-Divisional Magistrate Kokarnag rushed to spot and resolved the matter amicably. knt
