Death Certificate issued year before man dies
Srinagar, Jan 6: Police in central Kashmir’s Budgam district had issued death certificate to a man year before his actual death.
The documents which are in procession of Greater Kashmir reveal that police station Khag issued death certificate of a 45 year old Abdul Rehman Sheikh son of Muhammad Abrahim Sheikh of Drang Khankah in 2008 where as he died in 2009.
“This is to certify that Abdul Rehman Sheikh Son of Muhammad Abrahim Sheikh died on 15-04-2008,” states the death certificate issued by the Police Station Khag on 25/08/2011 under registration number 40/15-B/Khag.
Again in 2009, a death certificate of the same man was issued by police station Khag under registration number 208/15/-B/Khag, the copy of which is in possession of Greater Kashmir.
When contacted SDPO Magam, Tahir Geelani, said: “I don’t know about the matter. Let them come to me, then I will say anything.”
However Police station Khag in its letter no 806/S.A/PSK dated 29-12/2012 sent to the SDPO Magam states that on the application of Nazir Ahmed Sheikh, the matter has been verified through HC 179/B2 who revealed that Abdul Rehman Sheikh son of Abrahim Sheikh resident of Drang Khankah has expired on 14-02-2009, “Report to this effect stands entered in register no 15-B of the P/S under S.No 208 dated 14-02-2009. Accordingly death certificate mentioned above stands issued in the favour of Muhammad Abdullah Sheikh. Besides the wife of the deceased namely Zona Begum has managed the death certificate of her husband on 15-04-2008 for reasons best known to then Munshi of this Police station. However, the deceased was alive during that period.”
The letter from police station has requested SDPO Magam for his perusal which family members of Abdul Rehman Sheikh said he never did.
SSP Budgam, Uttam Chand assured of action in the matter.
