Magisterial inquiry a mockery:PDP
SYED MUHAMMAD YOUSUF’S DEATH
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 30:: Dismissing the so called inquiry report by a magistrate on the death of Haji Yousuf as farcical PDP today said it is a mockery of justice , fair play and accountability.
In a statement a PDP spokesman said while the people of Jammu & Kashmir had never expected any fair report by a junior official on an issue in which the personal conduct of the Chief Minister, his Home Minister and close aides was under question, to be able to reach the truth. The projection of this report by this Government as a “clean chit” to the high and mighty is like adding insult to injury. “Nobody expected a Magistrate to investigate his CM or Minister of State for Home or other extra constitutional authorities with independence and in accordance with law, but celebrating this report as a certificate of good conduct is simply ridiculous”, he said.
The spokesman said the reports that the magistrate and the doctors who had conducted the postmortem had been promoted recently, points to a clear quid pro quo. It is a shameless attempt to cover up some thing that increasingly looks fishy and suspicious with every action of the Government that followed the death of Haji Yousuf who was a close confident of Abdullah family, a known NC worker and who according to CM himself had been collecting money in the name of Dr Farooq Abdullah for appointment as MLCs and Ministers, he said. The spokesman added that this was in sharp contrast to the punishment meted out to the doctors, advocates and others who had handled the Shopian double murder in which two women were shown as having been washed away by ankle deep water.
The PDP spokesman said there were so many loopholes in the cover up bid by the government that it could hardly find a buyer. On the one hand the government keeps claiming that Haji Yusuf was never taken into custody and on the other hand the inquiry under CrPC was conducted under the same provision that applies to death of a person in police custody. “The death by heart attack theory is aimed at covering up as to what led to the heart failure. What happened at the Chief Minister’s residence is crucial to entire drama” he said and added unless there is a full fledged criminal investigation the truth could never be known. “Till date no FIR has been registered nor has any person named by eyewitnesses been interrogated” the spokesman said adding Yousuf according to all evidence was in normal condition while entering the CM house and was carried out with help. “The witnesses had publicly testified to Yusuf vomiting blood while being taken out of the residence” the spokesman recalled. He said even after such clinching clues the government had from day one refused normal law to operate and tried to find safety in sham inquiries.
Expressing the party’s worry about this and other such cases leading to lawlessness in the state, the spokesman said a message has gone across that law was applicable only to those who can’t influence or buy it. Instead of leading the campaign for probity and rule of law the chief minister and his family have emerged as major violators of law, the spokesman said. “It is significant that Yusuf died at a time when the entire edifice of corruption in NC leadership was about to get exposed” he said and pointed out that Haji’s death silenced him and also served as a warning for anyone who would dare repeating it in future.
The spokesman said while the ruling party might run away from just for some time, their sense of relief was going to be very short lived as the people of the state could not be hoodwinked any more. “The relief is not permanent and their sins will catch up with the present rulers, sooner than later when they will be called to account”, the spokesman added.
