JKCSF demands probe into Srinagar encouter

Srinagar: JKCSF Chairman Abdul Qayoom Wani Sunday demanded a probe into the killings of three persons at an encounter site in Hokarsar area of Srinagar outskirts.
Wani showed serious concern over the delay in handing over the bodies of slain youth to the families who continuously have been demanding the bodies of their loved ones and the delay has made the lives of their families hell and that it was our moral obligation to raise this issue and also stress for open court inquiry for the incident so that truth surfaces out.
In a statement Wani said that the incident of killing of three persons in Hokersar area of Lawayapora in Srinagar needs a judicial probe as the families of the slain persons have refuted the allegations that they were militants.
Wani said that the reports quoting the families of the three slain youth say that two among them had left their homes in Pulwama on Tuesday morning for Srinagar to take admission in a tuition center.
“Then the circumstances in which the killings happened need to be thoroughly probed.” Wani said
He said that in the past too, unfortunate incidents of civilians being killed in fake encounters have surfaced not only in local but in international press.
Wani said JKCSF seeks a time-bound inquiry into the circumstances leading to the killing of the three persons at the encounter site saying that justice must be immediately delivered by investigating the matter on an impartial and fast-track basis.
