SHRC seeks report from DGP, DCs



Srinagar, Dec 27: Jammu and Kashmir State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) on Thursday asked the Director General of Police (DGP) and Deputy Commissioners (DC) of Baramulla and Bandipora to report to the Commission about the disappearance of 507 civilians in these districts over the years.
 The Division Bench of SHRC comprising members Javaid Kawoos and Rafiq Fida gave the directions on a petition filed by the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) seeking causes and circumstances in which 507 civilians went missing in these districts during militancy.
 “We have heard Khurram Pervaiz (Programme Coordinator APDP) at length who has filed this complaint on behalf of alleged 507 missing subjects of district Baramulla and Bandipora. Khurram argued that the Commission is misdirecting their petition as being one filed for identifying the missing persons from those buried in unnamed graves. He submitted that actually alongwith the petition they have filed full particulars of missing subjects from Baramulla and Bandipora and prays that the Commission may enquire the causes and circumstances in which they disappeared,” the Commission states in its order.
  “We have appreciated the rival arguments advanced by Khurram Parvaiz. We have also gone through the complaint and annexures filed with the petition. As per the averments made in the complaint, the complainants really want an inquiry with regard to the cause and circumstances in which 507 persons have allegedly disappeared and by way of one of the prayers they seek DNA profiling of the next of kin to be done. Now that Khurram submits that the DNA profiling can wait till the inquiry in the matter is completed by the Commission, so taking cognizance in the matter which prima facie discloses a case of human rights violation regarding 507 alleged disappeared persons, the complaint is ordered to be admitted and registered,” the Commission states.
 The Commission issued notices to DGP and Deputy Commissioner of Baramulla and Bandipora to submit their concise report into the matter.
 The case is listed for February 12, 2013.
