Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Police has arrested a French journalist here for making a documentary on pellet victims.
“Comiti Paul Edward has been detained for violating visa norms in Srinagar,” a senior police officer said.
Edward was arrested on Sunday evening from Kothibagh area. He was meeting separatists and pellet victims in the city to shoot his documentary, the officer said. Scores of protesting youths suffered injuries from pellet guns used in 2016 following an unrest in the valley after the July 8 killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani. Some lost vision totally or partially after their injuries.
