Youth’s murder solved, 4 arrested
Srinagar, Oct 14: Police in Awantipora has cracked the blind murder case of a youth, Bilal Ahmad Seyam alias Iqbal by arresting four persons involved in the incident.
Giving details about the case, Superintendent of Police, Awantipora, Muhammad Irshad said, on September 26, Bilal Ahmad son of Muhammad Shafi Seyam of Mazmooh, Qazigund was found hanging from a tree in the outskirts of Aligund.
During investigation, Irshad said, it was found that Bilal Ahmad used to live with Bashir Ahmad Famda of Khurhama, Lolab, at present Aligund Awantipora. “Bilal was a student and a part-time labourer by profession and while staying with the family of the Bashir Ahmad Famda, he developed affair with his daughter. The duo wanted to get married, but the parents and the brother of the girl were not interested and got engaged their daughter to Rafiq Ahmad Awan of Qazigund. Bilal objected to the act and adamantly insisted for the marriage with the girl.” ”During the intervening night of September 25/26, four persons, Farooq Ahmad Famda son of Bashir Ahmad Famda of Lolab at present Aligund Awantipora, Aijaz Ahmad Awan son of Abdul Rashid Awan, Manzoor Ahmad Deda son-in-law of Nazir Ahmad Awan and Gulzar Ahmad Mugal son of Deen Muhammad Mugal of Malikabad, Qazigund hatched a criminal conspiracy to eliminate Iqbal. They called Bilal Ahmad to the house of Bashir Famda and strangulated him to death. They later took the body and hanged it from a walnut tree in a nearby orchard. The accused placed his slippers near the tree in such a position that gave an impression that the deceased has committed suicide,” Irshad added.
The accused, he said, tried to mislead the police by giving false impression of suicide behind the death of the youth.
However, by effective investigation of police, actual facts emerged to the surface and the culprits were arrested, he added.
