A body of Kashmiri Pandits today said the police did not register their complaint against social activist and author Arundhati Roy for her reported remarks against Centre's Kashmir policy.

"We approached the police, as directed by the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, for registration of a complaint against Arundhati.

"Instead of registering our complaint, they (police) advised us to approach the District Magistrate," Jammu and Kashmir Roots in Kashmir (RIK) said.

"The concerned police officer told us that he has no jurisdiction to register a case against Roy. We approached the SSP office but it was closed due to holiday," RIK convenor Vir Saraf said.

Attending a panel discussion on Kashmir in New York on November 12, Arundhati had said "I think the people of Kashmir have the right to self-determination, they have the right to choose who they want to be and how they want to be."

On November 22, a PIL was filed by RIK in the Jammu and Kashmir High Court seeking action against Roy for her remarks.

"The High Court disposed of the petition reserving our right to approach police (for criminal complaint) and in case police declines to intervene we may have right to approach a criminal court," Rohit Kapoor, who had pleaded the case on behalf of RIK, had said.
