Geelani flays Bandipora ‘fake encounter’ case closure

Expresses grief over Delhi gang-rape incident

GK NEWS NETWORK

Srinagar, Dec 23: Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani Sunday expressed displeasure over the closure report of police over the alleged stage-managed encounter at north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
 He also expressed grief over indicting the informer only and acquitting forces’ personnel. In a tele-statement issued from New Delhi, Geelani said; “The youth Hilal Ahmad Dar was killed by the Army informer Muhammad Ramzan who was in nexus with 27 RR.”
 “It is a shameful act in which police has given clean chit to forces and acquitted them from this murder. Armed forces have privileges under the garb of AFSPA and Disturbed Area Act and enjoy impunity to kill anybody,” he said.
 “In the case of Hilal Ahmad, police could have identified the assassins in uniform, instead the police exhibited timidity and closed the case,” he said.
 The Hurriyat (G) chairman said the case resembles that of Machil fake encounter in which an army Major and his company were responsible. “The stage for this gruesome murder was plotted and the said convicted officer was in search of a scapegoat, in order to get undue promotion,” he said.
 Geelani said; “Unless world bodies take cognizance and the case along with similar other cases are verified and due investigation is done, the present case and Machil type of massacres will continue to occur.”
 Meanwhile, Geelani expressed grief over the brutal gang rape of young girl in Delhi and suggested that the accused in the said case be dealt under Islamic Law.
 “The people in India are adopting double-standards. During last two decades several such incidents occurred in Kashmir but not a single person protested and nor the accused were brought to book,” he said.
 Citing the examples of Kunan-Poshpora, Chanpora, Jigerpora and Shopian, Geelani said though the accused were identified but were let off and no one was penalized or punished for the crime and added that  even the then home minister L K Adwani  declared that the forces cannot be convicted otherwise their  “morale will be at stake”. 
 Geelani while expressing heartfelt sympathies with Delhi rape victim said; “We feel deep pain for this, but the people of India should raise their voice and protest in the same way for Kashmiris as well.”
