CDRO punctures CBI theory
‘Why the bodies were found 1.5 km apart?’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 2: The Coordination of Democratic Rights Organisations today said the findings of CBI in the Shopian incident appeared to be yet another instance of the mockery of justice that has repeatedly characterized the Indian State’s operations in Kashmir.
The Coordination said the CBI was now claiming that that the original autopsy that had held that the two women were raped and killed was wrong; the government-appointed Jan Commission which inquired into the incident and found four policemen guilty of suppression of evidence as well as the Special Investigation Team were wrong.
“In the midst of its strident campaign to show that all those who had raised this issue were guilty, CBI has forgotten to explain how the two women could die of drowning in the shallow river Rambiara where their bodies were found, which was only one and a half feet deep and where nobody in more than a decade died due to drowning.”
“It has also perhaps slipped the mind of the CBI that they need to explain, how, for instance, the bodies of the two women appeared 1.5 km apart when the currents were not strong enough to carry the bodies over undulating terrain,” it said.
“This becomes all the more important because the Executive Engineer of the Flood Department summoned by the Jan Commission on 12th June, 2009, categorically stated that gauge of water discharge “has not shown sudden increase during the three (daily) readings that we normally recorded during the month of May, 2009” (p 82, Report 2, Jan Commission’s Final report submitted on 10th July, 2009),” it added.
“The strange fact that the bodies were suddenly found at about 5.30-6 a.m. of 30 May, when actually the people of the village had been searching at the same spot up to 2.30 a.m. also remains unexplained by the CBI. They also fail to inform as to why it took eight days for the police to register an FIR when the Shopian police station were aware that the two women were missing since evening of 29th May, 2009 and when their bodies were found the next day. As a result the police failed to carry out proper investigation soon after bodies were found and instead allowed evidence to be destroyed or damaged,” the Coordination said.
