Investigation in final stages: DGP
ALLEGED KULGAM RAPE
Srinagar, July 29: The Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda on Friday said the investigations into the alleged rape and abduction of a woman by unidentified army men in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district were in final stages.
“The investigations are almost in final stages. The report will be coming soon and everyone will come to know about it,” the DGP told reporters on the sidelines of function here.
He, however, refrained from divulging details about the investigations.
On July 21, Rukaya Bano, a woman from Kulgam district had alleged that two army men raped her after abducting her.
Following the allegations, massive protests broke out in the area with police registering a case under Section 376 of RPC. The Special investigation Team of Police was constituted to probe the incident.
The Army has also ordered a fast track internal inquiry into the incident.
Asked whether it was ethical to release the video tape of the victim, Khoda refused to comment. “The investigations are done and later on sent to the court where the same becomes a public document. I don’t want to go into calling it as ethical or unethical.”
While talking about the recent killings in Sopore and south Kashmir’s Tral area, he said the police are vigorously pursuing the cases. “The investigations are on. It will take some time. Militants involved in the killings of a political leader and the twin sisters in Tral and Sopore respectively were killed by the forces.”
Replying to a query about the lady from Portugal who was found in Leh after she went missing three years ago from the country, Khoda said she has been held and investigations into the matter are on.
About any threat to the ongoing Amarnath Yatra, Khoda said that it has been always a priority for the police to provide security to the annual pilgrimage. “We get inputs regarding security threats to the Yatra but our priority has always been to provide safe passage to pilgrims and a smooth functioning of the Yatra. For that adequate security measures have been put in place,” he said.
Earlier Khoda inaugurated the three day sports event Jashan-e-Dal and said that the police organize such events to groom the talent of Kashmiri youth. “We organize these events so that our youth can participate and compete at the national level,” he said.
Additional Director General of police, K Rajendra also spoke on the occasion.
