Family demands justice on fast-track basis
Srinagar, Jan 5: Family of the acid attack victim has demanded setting up of ‘fast track court’ so that the perpetrator of the dastardly act is punished quickly.
“The attack on my sister is height of cruelty. The perpetrator needs to be punished quickly in a fast track court. Police must understand the sensitivity of the case and complete the investigation soon and file a charge-sheet in the court without any delay,” Riyaz Ahmad, brother of the victim, told Greater Kashmir over phone from New Delhi.
Ahmad said the person who threw acid on his sister has already been identified. “So why is police delaying filing of the charge-sheet?” he asked.
The family members demanded stringent punishment to the accused Reyaz Ahmad Nath of Chanapora.
The Station House Officer, Sadder Police Station, Vishal Manhas, said the closure of courts for vacations in Kashmir region may affect filing of charge-sheet.
He said some samples have also been collected from the crime spot but the process has been hampered as the victim has been flown to New Delhi for specialized treatment.
