GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, June 21: Police has produced Challan in the Airport Road accident of December 24, 2010 which claimed life of an engineering student Aatif Mudabir Dar when a speeding sedan crashed into former’s car.
The case Investigating Officer (IO) and SDPO Sadder, Shabir Shah produced the Challan before the Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar.
The accused driver, Jasim Hussain Kawoosa son of a CAPD employee Mushtaq Ahmed of Nowhatta has been shown as the key accused.
“We have produced a Challan against him(Jasim Hussain Kawoosa) for rash and negligent driving, excessive speed and other charges,” the SDPO said adding that the FIR No 263/2011 was filed under section 304A, 427, 146, 196 and 154.
On the fateful day, Kawoosa, as per reports, was recklessly driving a swanky sedan DL3CAE 0154 when it jumped over the road divider on the Airport Road–crossed the lane –rammed into Aatif Mudabir Dar’s car from the driver’s side. While the car was reduced to wreckage, badly wounded Aatif succumbed within hours.
The accused escaped unhurt and managed to flee from the spot though he later “surrendered” at Police Station Sadder on the same day.
The accused was granted bail a few days later.
The accident had triggered a big debate in social circles that leave apart common people, the officials often discussed it in public gatherings.
Aatif, a NIT Hazratbal student and son of a top cop Ghulam Ahmed Dar aspired to qualify prestigious GATE. But much before that the speeding tinted car came his way.
To a question that why around seven months of delay in producing the Challan, the IO denied any dilly-dallying.
“Basically we were looking into the other angles of the case like if it could be a murder. But ultimately it came out to be a case of accident,” Shabir Shah said.
