"Why would the army beat up J&K police personnel in a police station? This requires immediate clarification/action by the authorities," Omar said.

An assistant sub-inspector (ASI) and six police personnel were injured after they were allegedly thrashed by armymen in Ganderbal after policemen deployed on the Amarnath yatra duty stopped them at a check point.

Police have filed a case against the Army personnel, an official said, adding that records kept at a police station were also damaged.
