GK NEWS NETWORK
Kupwara, Nov 14: Additional Deputy Commissioner Kupwara, Itrat Hussain, who is probing the killing of a youth by Army in Watergam on October 24, has said the Army was not coming forward to record its statement.
“We had asked them to record their statements on Nov 11 and 13, but they have not turned up yet,” he said.
The inquiry officer had served notice to Army in this respect, and had asked them to appoint a nodal officer for coordination in connection with the inquiry.
More than 12 persons, including the father of deceased, Ghulam Mohiuddin Ganai, and MLA Lanagte, Er. Rashid have recorded their statements.
Police has given clean chit to the deceased, Sajad Ahmed Ganai, saying he was not involved in any “militancy related activity” or even “normal crime.”
Sajjad Ahmed Ganai of Ganapora Langate was shot dead by troopers on October 24 at Watergam Varmul. Army claimed that he tried to intrude into their camp after attacking a soldier with axe. The youth’s family denied Army claims, saying that he was killed by troopers without any provocation after he left his house in the morning for daily chores.
Following severe protests against the killing, Deputy Commissioner Kupwara Showkat Ahmed Mir had ordered a time-bound magisterial probe.
