SHRC issues notices to GoI, JK Govt
KILLING OF 7 MEMBERS OF FAMILY IN DEWAR LOLAB
Srinagar, Apr 8: The State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has issued notices to State and Central governments, seeking their report in the killing of seven family members on the allegation of being militants and informers in North Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
Other respondents in the case are Director General of Police J&K, Inspector General, Commanding Officer Rashtriya Rifles Sherifabad, SSP Kupwara and SHO Lalpora, Sopore and Bandipora.
In the petition, International Forum for Justice and Human Rights Forum J&K had sought investigations and grant of compensation for the “victim family whose seven family members were killed on the allegations of being informers and militants”.
“The family of Sakhi Shah from Kakarpati Dewar Lolab sacrificed seven of its members from 1996 to 2006 on the pretext of being militants and informers,” the petition reads.
“The first incident took place in the year 1996 when a member of the said family Muhammad Yusuf Shah was killed by 15 RR on the pretext of being militant. Although the family lodged an FIR No. 73/96 in Police Station Lalpora but they could not approach authorities. Yusuf was killed in a fake encounter. At that very point of time it was not possible for the family members to approach the concerned authorities to justify their claim,” it further reads.
“Another member of the family Iqbal Shah was killed in 1998 and the allegations were the same – he was a militant. After the gap of two years, from 2000 to 2006, five members of the family were killed on the pretext of being militants and informers. The killed were Maqbool Shah Son of Kitab Shah, Zaman Shah Son of Maqbool Shah, Dilawar Shah Son of Kitab Shah, Muneer Ahmad Shah Son of Akhtar Shah and Haseena Begum Wife of Muneer Shah,” the petition reads.
