YOUTH’S KILLING IN 2006
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 5: Jammu and Kashmir State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has recommended departmental enquiry against Station House Officer of Police Station Nowpachi Marwah in Doda district for showing “unprofessional approach” which led to death of a youth and caused damage to public property in the area in 2006.
A Division Bench of the SHRC comprising members Javaid Kawoos and Amlok Singh gave the direction while disposing off a case of the killing of a youth of Marwah in police action during protests against the alleged custodial killing of a local.
The Commission had taken suo-moto cognizance of a report ‘1 dies, 2 injured in police firing on protesters’ published in Greater Kashmir on December 28, 2006. The Commission had sought reports regarding the case from IGP Jammu Zone and Deputy Commissioner Doda.
On the fateful day, the locals had recovered body of one Muhammad Ramzan Sheikh of Dherna Marwah and accused the security forces of killing him in fake encounter. The locals had staged protests and in police firing one youth Muhammad Hussain got killed.
After perusing the report of the enquiry officer Assistant Commissioner (Revenue) Doda, the Commission maintained that the SHO PS Nowpachi had shown “unprofessional attitude” while dealing with the situation.
“Before parting with the file we are of the considered opinion that the whole incident right from the death of Muhammad Ramzan has occasioned only because of unprofessional and immature approach shown by the then SHO Police Station Nowpachi Marwah. Had he shown professional skill and not jumped to have the recovery of LMG in the dead of night that too without any assistance 15-16 kms away from police station, neither the deceased Muhammad Ramzan would have been able to give a slip which ultimately proved fatal for him nor the incident of firing against the protesters would have taken place,” the Bench observed in its judgment.
“In these circumstances we recommend DGP J&K to initiate departmental enquiry against the then erring SHO P/S Nowpachi (Marwah) for showing immature and unprofessional approach towards the situation which ultimately resulted in loss of two lives and injuries to many and damage to the concerned police station.
“This misuse of powers be also got enquired into and Action Taken Report be communicated to the Commission,” the Bench recommended.
