PDP protests fake encounter
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Aug 10: Peoples Democratic Party Wednesday staged a protest demonstration in Jammu against the killing of an innocent civilian in a fake encounter at Surankot.
The protest started from the party office and most of the senior leaders from Jammu were present in the demonstration.
Addressing the party workers, general secretary of the party, Thakur Balbir Singh said that killing of an innocent youth has exposed claims of the National Conference led regime in the State.
He mentioned that the uncontrolled killing of innocent people at the hands of the security forces has exposed that this government has become completely immune to the atrocities it has been inflicting on the innocent people.
Terming Surankote incident as inhuman crime, he said that that instead of healing wounds of the people, the State Government headed by Omar Abdullah has given free hand to the security forces as well as police to killing innocent people in the name of fighting militancy.
PDP general secretary also took strong note of the decision of the hurriedly bury body of the victims without establishing his identity.
“There were confusing reports about the identity of the deceased so government should establish his identity before performing his last rites”, he said, adding, “There are serious doubts about the identity of the person killed, it does not make any difference to which community he belonged. It has been established and accepted by government that it was a fake encounter where one innocent person was killed. But the worst part is that the government has buried the body in haste without finding the identity of the victim”
Another party leader Rangil Singh while expressing his grave concern over uncontrolled and continues killing of innocent people in the state, said that ruling National Conference has once again brought back the black era of terror that it had presided over between the period of 1996 to 2002.
Former MLC Ved Mahajan, while terming action of the government to bury body of the victim without identification as heinous crime, said, “It raises serious questions as to why police was in such a haste to bury the body that they did not bother to take his blood sample too”. He further pointed out that no serious attempt was made even to trace his family.
