Srinagar, April 01: Police on Thursday claimed to have arrested twenty miscreants who as per police were involved in the Badamwari incident.
In a statement, the police said that On the 28th of March, a musical event was organised in Badamwari park by Tourism Department. The musical event witnessed a huge gathering of people including a very large number of women and children.
