Families plead for justice: Seek CM’s intervention
MURDER OF TWO KASHMIRI YOUTH IN UP, AP
Srinagar, Oct 25: Ahead of Eid-ul-Azha, families of two Kashmiri youth murdered in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and Andhra Pradesh (AP), have appealed the Jammu and Kashmir Government to take up the matter with the concerned state governments so that justice is delivered in the case.
Syed Danish, 24, of north Kashmir’s Kamalkot village and Muhammad Ashraf Bhat, 28, of Narbal were found dead in mysterious circumstances in UP and AP on February 1 and July 5 respectively this year. While the former had gone to UP for higher studies, the latter was in AP for a job.
Earlier, the families had told Greater Kashmir that they would approach the Prime Minister’s Office for justice, asserting that the J&K Government had let them down. “The claims of J&K Government to bring our sons’ murderers to justice have fizzled out. Even though we approached the state government many times, there seems no headway in the case. We want to know who killed our sons. We want justice,” they had said.
Danish’s father Syed Rehmatullah said the state government was not responding over taking up the matter and probing the killings. “There is no hope left in the case. The state government has forgotten that two of its subjects were killed outside. There is no reason why they should not probe the murders and deliver justice,” he said.
Syed Rehmatullah appealed the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to personally intervene in the matter and ensure justice. “Even though we have planned to approach the Prime Minister’s Office, we hope the Chief Minister looks into the case personally.”
Danish’s father said an FIR was lodged in Thakurgunj Police Station Lucknow under section 302-201 of IPC Crime No. 75 of 2012. “But unfortunately the accused were let off. Now that if we don’t expect justice from our own state government who else we would go to?” he said.
Talking to this newspaper the family of Muhammad Ashraf said it was waiting for culprits to be booked for the grave crime they have committed. “Ashraf was the sole bread-earner of the family. In fact he left for AP in search of a good job. The State Government has to take up the issue and ensure justice in the case. There is no other way. Andhra Pradesh Government will not care about it until the J&K Government intervenes,” Ashraf’s sister Dilshada said.
Last month, J&K’s Principal Secretary Home B R Sharma had said the state government was looking into the matter and police authorities were in touch with their counterparts in the concerned states.
Even the Additional Director General of Police K Rajendra (who was then acting as DGP) had told Greater Kashmir that the police department has informed their counterparts in other states over the harassment meted out to Kashmiris. “We have asked the police authorities in other states to take swift action against those who have been involved in the harassment of Kashmiris,” he had said.
