'Identification parade of accused cop not conducted yet'



Srinagar, May 6: Even though it was claimed that a cop was detained in connection with the killing of teenager Tufail Mattoo, the authorities have come with contradictory information that a parade to identify the accused policemen was yet to be conducted.
 “Some statements of witnesses have been recorded under section 164-A, which have necessitated holding of TIP (identification parade) as one of the witnesses has said that she can identify the accused if brought before her,” the State Government response to the High Court reads after a Public Interest Litigation by JKLF to seek justice for the 118 persons killed in the summer unrest of 2010.
 “The TIP is yet to be conducted,” the response adds.
 The Court has already pulled up police for going slow on the Tufail Mattoo killing case. On February 22, the Court had directed Police to complete identification parade of the accused forces within 15 days.
 Later on March 16, Greater Kashmir reported that a cop was held in connection with the killing after an eyewitness identified him during the parade. It was reported that accused policeman was taken into custody for questioning in presence of a magistrate, after a burqa clad woman identified him during the parade held at police station Rainawari here. However, nothing of that sort was carried out according to the recent information issued by the Government.
 The Government has not even mentioned that how Tufail was injured. The post mortem of his body has already revealed that he was hit by a tear gas shell that ripped open his head.
 “An FIR number 70/2010 under section  307, 364, 302, 148, 149, 336 RPC came to be registered on 11-06-2010 in police station Maharaj Gunj when an unruly mob attacked police party at Nalamaar Road, endangering life and safety of police personnel and deterring them from discharging their duties. The nafri (deployment) on spot resorted to cane charging. During the incident an unidentified boy (later identified as Tufail) got injured in the incident, who, was shifted to hospital where he succumbed to injuries,” the response reads. “The case was registered and the investigation taken up.”
