On son’s fifth death anniversary, family appeals CM for justice
Srinagar, June 30: Family of a crippled musician who was allegedly killed by personnels of paramilitary CRPF in Munwarabad in 2006, has made a fervent appeal to the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to help them get justice.
It was on this day in 2006 when his crippled musician son, Inayatullah Bhat,30, was killed by the CRPF personnel near his bakery shop here “just for demanding money for the bread” On his fifth death anniversary, his father, Rehmatullah Bhat said despite evidence, the accused personnel have not been punished yet.
“Five years have passed since my son was killed in cold blood by the personnels. Despite eye-witness accounts and circumstantial evidences, the accused troopers are yet to be punished. I fail to understand that for how many years I have to wait to get justice?,” Bhat asked.
A graduate turned musician, Inayatullah had suffered multiple fracture in his hip when he fell from third storey of his house—three year before his killing. He was operated upon many times and remained bedridden for nearly two years.
“The troopers had cooked up a story to cover up the killing saying they mistook Inayat as a militant as he moved towards their camp. While the fact is Inayat could not even walk properly without support not to talk of running. Besides the personnel knew him well as they regularly used to purchase bakery items from our shop,” Bhat argues.
