Hurriyat (G) seeks impartial probe
Srinagar, Dec 31: Hurriyat Conference (G) today reiterated its demand for impartial probe into the Pulwama firing by some neutral agency.
In a statement today, Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar said the announcement made by Omar Abdullah administration was an attempt to pacify the fury of the people. He said in several such incidents not a single case has been registered against the perpetrators involved, let alone taking action against the erring personnel.
“For the last two decades hundreds of such events were repeated when forces went berserk and fired upon innocent people. After every protest, administration orders investigations. But with every passing day new tragedies take place and consequently the old cases get effaced from the memories. Files are closed and as a result the people have lost faith in all these commissions,” he said.
Hailing the people for observing shutdown on Monday, Ayaz Akbar said, “In democratic societies people protest on streets but in our state restrictions have been imposed since 2010. We are left with no option other than to call people to mark their protest by shutdown to convey their message to the world. We are not calling shutdowns for fun. The people are worst victims of atrocities unleashed by armed forces and we have no option but to call for strike to register our protest.”
