CID rejects 5000 applications
CROSS LOC TRAVEL
Srinagar, June 23: The Crime Investigation Department has rejected travel documents of nearly 5000 persons who intended to travel to visit Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) through Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road, sources told Greater Kashmir on Wednesday.
“Most rejected applications are of those persons whose kin have crossed Line of Control after the armed struggle broke out in Kashmir in 1989,” they said.
Of 20,350 applications, sources said, the CID has given adverse report to 5299 applications and 25 applications have been rejected by Pakistan authorities. The CID is yet to give clearance to 1691 applicants, who are eagerly waiting to visit their relatives.
The CID has also rejected 2716 applications out of 17,400 received from the designated authority of Pakistan intending to visit JK while as clearance to 2400 is yet to be granted.
“The CID has rejected the applications on the basis that their relatives in PaK had crossed the LoC after 1989. Many militants are settled in another Kashmir and security agencies here cannot allow their relatives to cross the LoC,” they said, adding, “Some of them are active militants there.”
“Pakistan has rejected applications of those Kashmiris whose relatives are residing beyond Muzaffarabad,” sources said.
The nodal officer at CID headquarters Israr Ahmad Khan refused to divulge information on adverse report to thousands of applicants intending to visit PaK.
