Unrest victim’s family dares Govt
‘MY BROTHER NOT A CRIMINAL’
Srinagar, May 6: Family of Rafiq Ahmed Bangroo, killed during 2010 summer unrest, on Friday dared Government to prove its claim that the deceased was a “criminal.”
“Let them prove there was any FIR or case lodged against him (Rafiq). They are not even sparing the dead. It is unfortunate that the Government is using choicest contemptible labels against the innocent youth, who fell to the bullets of their own forces personnel,” Hilal Ahmed Bangroo, brother of the deceased, told Greater Kashmir on Friday.
Pertinently, JKLF Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, earlier this week had asserted that in reply to the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by him to get FIRs registered in 118 killings, which took place last year, the Government had dubbed Rafiq Ahmed as a “stone pelter” and a “dreaded criminal.”
Hilal said that they would not act as mute spectators and would approach the court. “We will also approach families of other youth who were killed and chalk out a strategy against our kith and kin being labeled as criminals,” he added.
Hilal said even the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had expressed sorrow over Rafiq’s killing. “Death of any innocent is always a matter of concern and pain for any responsible government,” he quoted Omar as having said.
Recalling the fateful day, he said that they were accompanying labourers who worked at their home.
“Suddenly CRPF men swooped and pounced upon him. They also hit a stone on his head and he became unconsciousness. After battling for life for a week, he succumbed to injuries at SKIMS Soura,” he added
