Court orders FIR against Dy SP after Tengpora man charges him of son’s ‘cold blooded murder’

Srinagar: A court here has ordered senior superintendent of police (SSP) Srinagar to get case registered against a Dy SP for “cold blooded murder” of a youth, Shabir Ahmad Mir of Tengpora Srinagar, on July 10.
The court—Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar Masarat Shaheen—also directed the SSP Srinagar to get the case investigated by some senior police officer who should not be below the rank of deputy superintendent.
The court passed the orders on an application filed by Shahbir’s father, Abdul Rehman Mir, seeking direction to the Station House Officer (SHO) Batamaloo to file FIR against the DySP—Yasir Qadri— under 302 of the RPC.
Mir says that he was forced to knock on court’s door after the concerned SHO refused his plea to register FIR against the DySP.
Mir said that on July 10, at about 6:35p.m., he along with family members was watching TV when a police party headed by the DySP barged into his house and started smashing window panes and doors.
“(My) wife tried to stop the police official but (he) got infuriated and physically assaulted (her) and hurled invectives,” he said.
Seeing all this, Mir said, his son—Shabir Ahmad—could not bear it and tried to save her mother from the clutches of the official and other police personnel.
“On this the police official went into rage and started beating (my) son and thereafter opened two fires into his body. My son died on the spot,” he said.
Mir charged the DySP of taking law into his hands and exceeded his powers to kill to his son in a “cold blooded murder.”
“Hence in light of the application and sworn-in in affidavit, the SSP is directed to file FIR against the concerned official and investigate the matter,” the court said and also directed the SSP to get the case investigated by some senior official not below the rank of DySP.
“Copy of the order along with the application should be sent to the SSP Srinagar for compliance,” the court said and posted the case for further consideration on July 28.
