POLICE ARREST 3 ACCUSED
Kupwara, Feb 18: Police have arrested three persons in connection with an accident in which two persons were killed last week here in north Kashmir.
A police officer told Greater Kashmir that three persons, including driver and owner of the vehicle were held on the murder charges.
He said the driver of the vehicle Ishfaq Ahmad Khan of Manigah, Bashir Ahmad, owner of the vehicle and Muhammad Amin Khan, who, the officer said, were traveling in the vehicle at the time of accident were absconding since February 16.
“Investigations have revealed that speeding Sumo hit the pedestrians near Goose on Saturday killing Muhammad Jamal on the spot and injuring Muhammad Shafi Lone. Had the driver informed the police in time, Shafi’s life could have been saved. Instead the driver and others traveling in the vehicle tried to destroy the evidence and threw the bodies of deceased and injured into the fast flowing nallah,” said relatives of the victims.
Pertinently, recovery of two bodies on Saturday from Nallah Lolab near Goos in Kupwara district had triggered panic in this frontier district. A Tata Sumo which had skidded off the road was also found near the spot from where the bodies were recovered.
