GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 17: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani has urged people to observe a complete shutdown on Monday and march towards Palhalan Pattan to express solidarity with the families of eight persons of the area who were killed in the ongoing unrest.
Meanwhile, Geelani rejected the probe by the Commission of Inquiry appointed by the Government into the 17 out of 111 killings. “When killers and investigators are from the same Government, we can’t expect any justice ring past 20 years, many Commissions were formed to probe the human rights violations but neither the killers were identified nor punished. The probes are conducted only to hoodwink the international community,” he said.
Geelani said in the conflict zones, the probes are conducted by independent authorities. “I appeal the International Court of Justice to probe the killings in Kashmir,” he said.
Geelani alleged that the troopers of 18 Rashtriya Rifles stationed in Lolab were harassing locals.
