Booked For Attempt To Murder


Srinagar, Nov 27: Family members of a class 9 student Danish Farooq of downtown here have accused police of detaining their ‘minor’ son in a jail in violation of juvenile norms. However police refuted the family claims, saying Danish is 16 years old and ‘hence not a minor’. The boy has been booked for ‘attempt to murder’ besides other harsh sections.
Danish was whisked away by police personnel of Kral Khud police station on Monday outside lower court here after he was granted bail in another case registered against him in Shaheed Gunj police station, said Danish’s uncle.
“He was first arrested at around 11:30 AM near Gole Market Karan Nagar on 19th of November by police personnel of Shaheed Gunj police station,” he said.
He said Danish was produced in court only after the family filed an application for his release. “We have never had tryst with courts and are unaware of procedures followed there, so we used to make rounds of police station everyday for his release.”
Advocate Babar Qadri, who represented Danish in the case registered in Shaheed Gunj police station, says the boy was slapped with harsh laws. “He was arrested under FIR number 77/2012 under sections 152 RPC, 138 RPC, 148 RPC, 147 RPC. He was rearrested by Kral Khud police station after being granted bail. He is a class 9 student of Tiny Tots School Fateh Kadal. He is a juvenile.”

However, police in a press handout said, “Srinagar police had arrested a notorious stone pelter, Danish Farooq Wani son of Farooq Ahmad Wani resident of Chattabal at present Purshyar Habba Kadal, and presented him before the court. The stone-pelter is involved in number of stone pelting incidents including a petrol bomb attack for which a case FIR no: 26/2012 under section 307, 285, 336/RPC stands registered against him in police station Kral Khud. The accused was arrested and presented before the Hon’ble Court of Sub-Registrar, Srinagar. As per the records of the Board of School Education, the date of birth of the accused is 6/6/1996. The Court remanded him to police custody for not being a minor.”
