The Army has apologised for beating up 8 policemen in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ganderbal district, a senior police official said on Monday.

“The Army has apologized and ordered a court of inquiry,” Inspector General of Police Munir Ahmad Khan told the media here.

This happened after the Director General of Police lodged a strong protest against the Saturday evening incident when the soldiers returning from the Amarnath Yatra were stopped at a check-post in Gund area by the policemen.
