Tral/Narbal Killings

Tral/Narbal Killings

Srinagar: Chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani Sunday alleged that Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed was “responsible for the death of three youth” since past week.
In a statement, Geelani said that said that the “Goli Nahi Boli” (dialogue, not bullets) slogan of Mufti Sayeed has proven a “farce.”
“Within the few days of his government formation, three innocent and unarmed youths were brutally killed by the forces. Mufti is heading the unified command, so is responsible for all the three murders,” Geelani said.
He said that the arrest of two policemen after the Narbal killing was an “act to pacify the anger of the people.” “They are not serious about it. It has been the record till date that no force personnel, involved in the innocent killings and rapes, have been ever booked or punished for their crimes against the humanity,” he said.
While demanding for impartial investigation into the incidents of Tral and Narbal Budgam, Geelani said, “the government probe is not trust worthy in any way because all the government institutions are parts of the same system and a murderer can’t be appointed as a judge.”
He expressed sympathy and offered condolences to the parents of youth killed in Narbal. “The government machinery didn’t allow me to visit Narbal to express my condolence personally and from last many days, I have been confined to my house.”
Geelani also castigated former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. “The statement Omar Abdullah made over the killing of Narbal is like shedding crocodile tears. His (Omar Abdullah’s) hands are soaked with the blood of innocent students and he has no moral right to criticize others.”
“He is directly involved into the 2010 killings. No one has been booked or punished for the killing of more than 125 students so far,” he added.
