Mansoor PeerSrinagar, Mar 17:
An unknown man on Friday evening abused and gave life threats over phone to Dr Mohammad Mushtaq, Head of Orthodontics Department of Government Dental College and Hospital, Srinagar.
Dr Mushtaq who hails from Rawalpora area of Srinagar told Rising Kashmir that soon after he gave an interview to a local news channel regarding the allegations leveled against him by the postgraduate students of the college, he received a call and the person abused him.
“It was around 7:45 pm and a friend who works in Kashmir University was with me when an unknown number called me and started abusing me. The caller also gave life threats but I maintained silence,” he said.
“When I asked him who he was, he said I am your father. I do not know the person. He gave me life threats,” Dr Mushtaq said.
The nearly one-minute audio message which was saved by him has been widely circulated on social media but he said: “he recorded it in the middle of the conversation.”
“I will tell you, you b….d. I would not let you go now. I will remove your clothes. I was waiting for this day,” the unknown man says in the audio. The unidentified man talks arrogantly. “I wanted to prove it to the college principal, Riyaz Farooq.”
“Nothing will come out of the corruption in the College. I was waiting for this day… “wait and watch” along with your wife and child,” he continues to abuse and then disconnects the call.
The recorded audio which has been circulated widely has triggered a debate in the institute especially among the students who are observing indefinite strike against the alleged misbehavior and harassment by Dr. Mushtaq.
Some students call it a conspiracy and allege that the act has been done by the HoD himself in order to prove that there is external hand behind the strike of students. Meanwhile, the HoD has registered a complaint in this regard against the unknown person at Police Station, Saddar Barzulla Baghat.
