FSL report confusing: Police
Fresh Samples May Be Sent To Chandigarh
DASTGEER SAHAB SHRINE FIRE
SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, July 27: The Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) report on the gutting of Dastgeer Sahab (RA) shrine is full of confusions and the investigators have raised certain queries on the findings.
The analysis of the samples taken from the gutted shrine has been carried out at FSL located at Dalgate here and the report has ruled out fire due to short circuit. The report has also ruled out the use of any combustible substance, but it has not been able to detect the cause of fire.
New samples may now be sent to FSL Chandigarh for further analysis.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Srinagar, Ashiq Bukhari told Greater Kashmir that they have received the FSL report. “There are certain confusions in the report and we have sought answers from the people who have carried out the analysis,” the SSP said.
About the investigation by the Special Investigating Team (SIT) into the gutting of the shrine, the SSP said that probe was on. “Investigations are on and every angle is being investigated.”
A police official associated with the SIT told Greater Kashmir on the basis on anonymity that they have collected more samples as they are not satisfied with the FSL report. The official said that FSL report mentions that the fire was not caused due to short circuit. “It also says that they did not find any combustible substance (petrol, kerosene, etc.) during the analysis,” the official said, adding that they have written to FSL experts to identify then how the fire started.
The official said that more samples have been collected. “In case they need more samples we will provide them,” he said. “The samples might also be sent to Chandigarh FSL.”
About the other angles of investigation, the SIT official said that they have sought complete details of management of the shrine from Wakf Board, ‘however their response in slow.’
Earlier, the SIT had also said that while investigating the old-wiring angle that might have resulted in short circuit, Waqf Board did not cooperate fully.
The SIT has questioned and recorded statements of 22 persons, including the Vice-Chairman Waqf Board, Sajada Nisheen and shrine management personnel.
