Inquiry officer shoots notices to Army, police, medicos
UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Srinagar, Feb 17: The Additional Deputy Commissioner Kupwara-probing the killing of a Handwara youth in an army ambush-has issued notices to the army, police and doctors for recording their statements.
Sources told Greater Kashmir that ADC, Itrat Hussain, who is conducting a magisterial probe to ascertain the facts behind the killing of Manzoor Ahmed Magray, son of Ghulam Ahmed of Purupet, in an ambush by the soldiers on February 4 had started the inquiry process and had accordingly issued notices to all the officials, “whose statement is required to be recorded”.
Though the inquiry officer was required to submit the report within 15 days, the probe could not commence for some unknown reason, sources said.
They said ADC issued notices to the officers at Army’s 7 sector brigade headquarters asking them to submit list of the personnel who were deployed in the area.
“The Army has been asked to provide the list of personnel involved in the ambush”, sources said adding, “The army has also been asked to produce all those personnel before the ADC on February 22 so that their statements could be recorded”.
The police officials conducing investigation in the case have also been summoned through SHO Handwara. “Their statement would be recorded on February 21”, sources said.
“While the SHO has been asked to furnish the copy of the FIR the ADC will personally visit police station Handwara for recording the statements of policemen”, sources said.
Besides Army and police, the Chief Medical Officer Kupwara has also been asked to produce doctors who performed autopsy of deceased so that their statements are recorded, they added.
“All these officials will be examined and their statements will be recorded according to law so as to arrive at any conclusion”, sources, privy with the investigation said.
When contacted, ADC Kupwara, Itrat Hussain confirmed that the probe had started into the incident and notices had been issued to the concerned officials.
Pertinently, the inquiry officer recorded the statements of the family of deceased on February 12.
While the police has registered a murder case against the soldiers involved in the incident, the army has ordered internal probe to ascertain the facts.
Sensing the gravity of the matter and following massive protest in the area, the Government also ordered magisterial probe into the matter.
