"Congress expresses concern over the way the employees, journalists and common people are being treated on roads by the security forces. What is the use of curfew passes when these are not being considered as a valid document by the forces," JKPCC said in a statement.

It was commenting alleged incidents of beating of journalists, government employees and ambulance drivers by security forces in curfew-bounds areas of the unrest-hit valley.

"This is unfortunate that despite having curfew passes issued by the Administration, the employees, journalists and other people are being harassed and thrashed by the forces.

"When the curfew passes issued by DM is not valid, how can the administration pressurize the employees to attend duties? Even the ambulances are not being allowed to move freely, which is highly unfortunate and unacceptable," he said.

The spokesman said there seems to be a huge communication gap within the Administration and asked the government to come clean on this issue, "as people have every right to know who is ruling the state".
