SUHAIL AJMAL

Zalpora (Sumbal), Jan 16: A day after a 22-year-old youth from Zalpora was found dead near Sultanpora village on the outskirts of Sumbal tehsil in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district, the villagers Wednesday alleged that the youth was killed by the local Sarpanch.
The 22-year-old Nasir Ahmed Dar alias Novroz son of Bashir Ahmed of Zalpora village in Sumbal Sonawari was allegedly beaten to death by the local Sarpanch Muhammad Ibrahim Takloo who had accused Dar of recent theft in his house. Nasir was the sole bread-earner for the poor family of four sisters and two brothers. He was a vendor.
Takloo had lodged a complaint with police alleging that Dar had “barged into his house recently and stolen many things.” “Before police could decide on the complaint, the Sarpanch, along with his accomplice beat Nasir to death in broad daylight,” Nasir’s family alleged.
Shabir Ahmed, a relative of the deceased, said Police went to the Nasir’s house on Tuesday morning in connection with the complaint. “When the cops left his house, the Sarprach along with his son and accomplice forcibly entered the house and thrashed his brother and sister. Nasir, however, was at a neighbour’s house. While Nasir fled the house to evade a tussle, they chased him till Sultnapora and beat him to death there,” he alleged.
The Sultanpora villagers said they found a body in the village and shifted him to a Srinagar hospital where he was declared as brought dead. Police later reached the hospital and took away the body.
The villagers have demanded an inquiry into the incident.
Meanwhile, contingents of police and CRPF were deployed in the village to avoid any law and order problem. Forces were deployed around the house of the accused Sarpanch.
A police official said, “We have initiated proceeding under section 174 of CrPC in this regard.”
