Govt shielding killers: PDP
Srinagar, July 26: Showing displeasure and dissatisfaction over the report of Special DG BSF Dlip Trivedi on Gool killings, opposition Peoples Democratic Party Friday alleged that efforts are on by the government to shield the guilty rather than punish them.
“We were already aware that the erring BSF men involved in the killing of four unarmed civilians at Gool won’t be punished and they will be shielded by the government as such cases have already happened in the past whether it was Kunan Poshpora, Shopian incident or others. If the guilty won’t be punished people of the state will lose faith in the political system which will be the huge setback,” the PDP chief spokesperson Nayeem Akhtar told KNS.
Special Director General BSF Dlip Trivedi has submitted a report to the Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde and has maintained that the BSF along with Police had fired in self defence to save its men and weapons.
Lashing out at state government Akhtar said, “Had the government taken action against those involved in killing of 120 youth in 2010 it would have set an example for forces. Unfortunately Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has given full powers to his forces to kill the innocents.”
Condemning the indiscriminate arrest of youth in the aftermath of Gool killings he said, “Youth have become soft targets for the government. PDP Patron Mufti Muhammad Syed has already taken this issue with Prime Minster Dr Manmohan Singh and has asked him to take strong action against the culprits.”
“PDP is always against the human rights violation and will fight issues like denial of justice, (AFSPA) and other issues,” he claimed.
Commenting on the sectarian clashes in Budgam district the PDP chief spokesperson said, “National Conference for their vested interests has made situation worse in Budgam. To divert the attention from killings, misgovernance and corruption, National Conference is working on the Shia-Sunni front to divert attention of people.” KNS
