Protestors seek action in youth’s ‘murder’
Srinagar, Apr 1: Protests erupted in north Kashmir’s Rafiabad area on Friday with people demanding arrest of persons involved in alleged murder of a youth.
After prayers, scores of youth including children and women took to streets raising pro-freedom and anti-government slogans. The protesters blocked Handwara-Kupwara highway for more than two hours, disrupting vehicular traffic. The residents alleged that police had failed to solve the case during past one month. “First they told us that they will solve the case in few days. Now after the recovery of body they are yet to nab the killers,” they said.
The body of Mir, who went missing on March 2, was recovered from trench of a local hospital on March 25.
His disappearance and death had sparked massive protests in the area over past few weeks.
Meanwhile, the locals have demanded intervention of Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah in the case.
“How long we have to wait for justice .We approached everybody including, police, district officials and ministers to provide us justice, but their promises have proven hoax,” they said.
When contacted, Superintendent of Police Sopore, Altaf Ahmed Khan said police was investigating the matter.
