CRPF IG Ravideep Shahi told Mail Today, 'We are in the process of lodging an FIR against the hecklers.'
A copy of the complaint letter submitted by CRPF in Chadoora Police station, accessed exclusively by Mail Today, says that on 9th April, CRPF contingent deployed for election duty on Sunday were surrounded by thousands gathered to protest at various polling booths.
Some scaled the walls of polling booth, misbehaved with the CRPF and shouted anti-India slogans of 'Go India go back, Pakistan zindabad, we want freedom, no election, no selection.'
The CRPF then goes on to say that its men showed exemplary patience 'asking protesters to slowly turn away'.
The complaint then further says the mob launched a life-threatening attack on CRPF.
Cricketer Virender Sehwag posted the footage on twitter.
This is Unacceptable ! Cant do this to our CRPF jawaans .This rot has to stop. Badtameezi ki hadd hai. [ ][ ] In the second part of the letter, CRPF said it will submit the viral video as evidence.
The incident took place in Budgam district in Srinagar constituency which went to the by-poll amid widespread protests and violence on 9th of April on Sunday.
The video shows remarkable restraint shown by CRPF personnel despite highest provocation. CRPF IG Ravideep Sahi said, 'It shows our men do not respond despite provocation. They are forced to respond only when there is a threat to life or property.'

Indian cricket star Gautam Gambhir sparked controversy on Twitter yesterday when he wrote: 'Anti-Indians hav forgotten dat our flag also stands 4: saffron - fire of our anger, white - shroud for jihadis, green - hatred 4 terror.'
Many were quick to point out the apparent ridiculousness of tweeting with nationalist overtones and then changing the meaning and significance of your own national flag beyond all recognition of the principles upon which it was designed.
As many proud Indians will tell you, the colours of the tricolour - saffron, white and green - were chosen for the three bands, representing courage and sacrifice, peace and truth, and faith and chivalry respectively - and not the fire of communal hatred, wiki.trumpchannel.org white for the linen of a death shroud, and green for the hatred many have for the Pakistani national flag, as suggested by the Kolkata Knight Riders captain.

Indeed, Gambhir should perhaps read more on the philosopher Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who later became India's first Vice President and second President.
Radhakrishnan clarified the adopted flag and described its significance as follows: 'Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work', Radhakrishnan said.
'The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct.
'The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends.
'The 'Ashoka Chakra' in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma.
'Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion.
'There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward.
'The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.'
