SRINAGAR: Kashmir High Court Bar Association on Wednesday strongly condemned the “brutal killing” of Jahangir Ahmad Wani of Drugmulla, Kupwara, by police.
The lawyers’ body also demanded an impartial enquiry into the killing so that the guilty are awarded exemplary punishment.
“The Bar Association feels that these ruthless Kashmir police personnel leave no stone unturned in harming the Kashmiri people as and when they find an occupation to do so irrespective of the fact as to whether the Kashmiri has committed any wrong or not,” a spokesman of the KHCBA said.
In the case of non-Kashmiris they don’t resort to such a tactic as was seen recently at NIT Srinagar. “Even as non-Kashmiris resorted to stone pelting and damaged the property of the institute, the police used Lathi charge but were taken to task by Delhi and even a PIL was filed against them in the High Court at Jammu for bringing them to book,” the KHCBA said.
The police personnel have no respect for the human rights of Kashmir deserve to be condemned by one and all, the spokesman said. The KHCBA also urged International Community and other human rights organizations to pressurize government of India and its “stooges” in Kashmir to stop the genocide of Kashmiris.
The bar association also extended support to the call given by the Pro-freedom leadership against the Handwara and Kupwara killings.
