WAMIQ FAROOQ CASE
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Dec 17: A local court Monday directed the Special Investigation Team probing the circumstances leading to the death of Wamiq Farooq to take steps for securing the presence of witnesses in the case.
Wamiq Farooq was killed on January 31, 2010 when a teargas shell hit him on head near Gani Memorial Stadium at Rajouri Kadal in old Srinagar.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar, Rajeey Gupta, directed the Investigating Officer to take appropriate steps to secure the attendance of the witnesses after the Court was informed that the witnesses familiar with the facts were not appearing before the SIT.
In the latest report submitted in the court, the IO has stated that the investigation in the case is going apace. The report, however, said that the witnesses conversant with the facts of the case are not appearing before the SIT.
The court had on November 1 this year directed the SIT to expedite its investigation into the circumstances of death of Wamiq Farooq.
The SIT had informed the court that five independent witnesses were examined by it saying their statements were recorded in writing as well as audio visually.
The SIT had however said that the demonstration for ascertaining the possibility of injury as seen on the deceased (Wamiq Farooq) could not be done due to some technical difficulties and said the same will be carried out after necessary technical aid will be made available with the SIT.
