GK NEWS NETWORK
Baramulla, Dec 4: Accusing police of failing to arrest the persons involved in the alleged murder of siblings last month, hundreds of people on Saturday staged anti-government demonstrations in Sangri Bala area of North Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
Altaf Hussain, 35, and Abid Ahmad, 25, sons of Muhammad Hussain Khan of Sangri were found dead by a police team at Cheradari Nallah in Gujjarpati forest area on November 14. The duo had visible marks of injury on head.
“The duo was hit with sharp edged weapons on head. However, no firearm injury were found on the bodies,” Medical Superintendent, District hospital, Dr Nanda had told PBI.
Hundreds of men, women and children of Sangri Bala this morning took to streets and staged anti-government demonstrations. The protesters said that at least three of the seven suspects in the alleged murder of the brothers were let off by police.
“21 days have passed but the police have not identified the killers of my sons. In fact, they have released the people who had direct or indirect links with the murder,” Father of slain youth, Khan said.
Pertinently, Khan’s lone son Shabir Ahmad is currently detained at the Udhampur police station. He was booked under Public Safety Act (PSA) for his alleged role in stone pelting.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Baramulla, Mansoor Ahmad Untoo said the ongoing investigations have not pointed to the murder of the siblings.
“Our investigations so far have revealed that the siblings had died. We’re trying to figure out the reason behind their deaths,” he added.
