Police implicating TeH activist in Sarpanch’s killing: Geelani
Srinagar, Jan 21: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday alleged the Sopore Police was trying to implicate the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat member Abdul Majid Lone of Logaripora, Bomai, in the killing of Sarpanch to put a cover on its own failures and shortcomings.
“Police is trying to implicate Lone in the killing of Sarpanch without any proof and evidence,” said Geelani in a statement today from New Delhi, adding “It (police) are trying to make TeH workers a scapegoat to hide its own weaknesses by implicating them in false cases.”
“If Police and authorities do not change their undemocratic behavior and keep on choking the political space it would definitely pave way for revival of gun culture in the state,” Geelani said.
“No doubt the role of Panchs and Sarpanchs is detrimental for ongoing movement but we believe in fighting our opponents in a democratic way. We also wish to get them into our fold and movement but in a civilized and polite way. Earlier police had tried to involve Tehreek leader Nasir Abdullah of in a murder case of a Sarpanch at Palhalan and later on even Omar Abdullah announced that neither any Mujahid nor any political worker was involved in killings of Sarpanch,” said Geelani.
Referring to the case of a Sarpanch, killed in Logripora Sopore, Geelani said the police called Tehreek worker Abdul Majid Lone and arrested him. “Police then subjected him to severe torture and he was compelled to confess his involvement in murder case,” he added.
Geelani said the mainstream leaders blamed each other for the killings of Panch and Sarpanch but “Police are hell bent to victimize the TeH workers.”
Terming police as a “failed force,” Geelani said, “Police have failed in solving the mysterious murder case of Sarpanch. Police are framing TeH workers to save their skin.”
