Jammu: In a punitive action, the Jammu and
Kashmir government on Thursday attached two police officers,
including an IPS, to police headquarters here after a video
showing them using "foul" language against some politicians
was circulated on the Internet.

"SSP (Vigilance) Basant Rath and Kulgam SP Mubassir
Latifee were attached to police headquarters for use of foul
and derogatory language against some politicians (as shown in
a leaked CD which surfaced on the Internet," an official said.

The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah here, he said.

The CD showing the two officers using derogatory language
against some politicians during interrogation of businessman
Nagar Singh at Gandhi Nagar police station here surfaced on
social networking site `youtube` in October.

Singh is in jail in connection with attempt to destroy
murder weapon in a 2009 case in which his son Jitender is the
prime accused.
