GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 29: The Jammu and Kashmir State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has indicted the security forces for killing a youth of Baramulla without any provocation in 2008 and asked the DGP to conclude investigation of the case.
In his judgment, the member SHRC, Abdul Rashid Khan, stated that on the basis of findings of the magisterial inquiry, Mansoor Ali Kumar son of Ali Muhammad Kumar of Khanpora was killed without any provocation by the security forces.
The Commission had taken suo-motto cognizance of a report ‘Bloodbath in Baramulla’ published in Greater Kashmir on November 2008.
The Commission had asked the DGP to file a factual report in the case.
The enquiries revealed that on November 22, 2008, a violent mob came out of highway at Khanpora Baramulla and started pelting stones on the private and security forces vehicles. In the meanwhile, some unknown security forces vehicle passing through Khanpora came under heavy stone pelting.
The security forces retaliated in self defence and fired some shots to disperse the mob resulting in injury to one Mansoor Ali Kumar who later succumbed to his injuries,” the DGP states in his report to the Commission.
The report states that a case under FIR no 206/2008 under section 147, 148, 336, 427 RPC stand registered at Police Station Bandipore and the District Magistrate had ordered a magisterial inquiry into the incident.
The Commission states that the Deputy Commissioner forwarded a copy of the findings of then Additional District Development Commissioner who conducted the magisterial enquiry to the Commission.
The SHRC said that the enquiry officer has recorded the statements of three witnesses, Manzoor Ahmad Kumar, Danish Ahmad Gojri and headmistress of the Girls Middle School.
“The examination of the findings of the magisterial enquiry and other material on the file, makes it clear beyond doubt that the Mansoor Ali Kumar was innocent, playing cricket in the school premises and while coming out from the school, he was fired upon and killed by the security forces traveling in a Gypsy without any provocation,” the Commission states in the judgment.
The Commission asked the DGP to conclude investigation of the case on the basis of findings of the Magisterial Inquiry. It also asked the Government through Chief Secretary to grant benefits under SRO-43 to the next of kin of the victim.
In another case, the Commission has recommended an exgratia of Rs one lakh to Muhammad Ramzan Khanday son of Abdul Gani Khanday of Mirbazar Islamabad (Anantnag) who was killed allegedly by the militants on Mach 31, 2005.
In his judgment, the Commission’s member Abdul Rashid Khan that the deceased was an ex-militant and acquitted by the Court. “He was working as a domestic work to feed his family. But he was pressurized by the militants to rejoin after he declined he was killed. It is established by the Qazigund Police that Muhammad Ramzan was kidnapped by the militants and later killed by chopping his body into two pieces,” the judgment states while asking the Government to pay relief to the deceased’s family.
