Family contests police claims of suicide
Srinagar, Aug 25: A family from Kupwara has contested the police report terming the death of their daughter as suicide case.
According to Wali Muhammad, his daughter, Parveena Begum was allegedly hacked to death by her in-laws on July 2 and later on burnt by sprinkling kerosene oil on her.
However, Police station Trehgam has termed it as a case of suicide by framing the filing an FIR under 306 RPC in FIR 41/11 dated July 3, which tantamount to suicide, Wali Muhammad added.
Police, Wali Muhammad said had allegedly distorted the facts to save the culprits. He said “On July 2, Parveena was beaten by her husband and his father at her residence in Bonipora Trehgam. Since my daughter’s marriage, she had to face domestic violence at her in-law’s house. Parveena would complain of beating every time and on July 2 she was hacked to death and later burnt,” he told Greater Kashmir.
The family said, on hearing her screams, Parveena was rushed to SMHS hospital Srinagar by the neighbours. “That night she narrated whole incident to us. We approached the Police Station Karan Nagar for recording her statements. However, they refused and asked us to get it reported in our concerned Police station at Trehgam,” he said.
He added, “We approached Police Control Room Srinagar and informed them about the incident. They simply telephoned Trehgam Police station. By the time Police party reached hospital, Parveena succumbed to her wounds.”
On return to the village, Wali Muhammad said, the officers in police station Trehgam had allegedly prepared an application labeling it as a case of suicide without scrutinizing the facts.
“However, we refused to buy the police version and submitted another application charging of murder. But, after receiving FIR copy from Police station, we were surprised to learn that they have dubbed it as a case of suicide instead of murder,” Wali Muhammad added.
“Police is trying to save the culprits. We want justice,” the family said.
Superintendent of Police Kupwara V K Birdi told Greater Kashmir that he would look into the matter and the family could contact his office.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Kupwara, Rasik Mir said that they were investigating the case again.
