Padshahi Bagh observes shutdown against police failure

TEENAGER’S MYSTERIOUS DEATH

MUDASIR YAQOOB

Srinagar, Sep 6: Residents of Padshai Bagh Friday staged protest demonstrations accusing the police of failing to identify “killers” of a local teenager Zahid Iqbal, whose body was fished out from Jhelum three days past his disappearance, last month.
 The protestors blocked the main road in the area and adjoining Soiteng, while the shops and other business establishments also remained closed.
 Pertinently, the body of a Padshahi Bagh youth, who had remained missing August 23, was fished out from Jhelum near LD Hospital on August 26. The incident had triggered instant protests with the bereaved suspecting that it could be a murder adding that his body bore marks of attack.
 The deceased teenager identified as Zahid Iqbal (17) son of Muhammad Iqbal, a prominent local, had disappeared under mysterious circumstances while the family had been trying to ascertain his whereabouts. The deceased was a class 11th student.
 The protestors said the police should make the name of “murderer” public and make efforts to punish the guilty under law.
 They said the police had arrested around one dozen suspect but was yet to identify the culprits.
 “On the fateful day he had gone to see his friend in Soura but didn’t return while his phone was switched off since,” said one of his family members.
 “We had got to know from some quarters that Zahid’s SIM could have been removed from the phone on the same day when he disappeared and this was the reason of the mobile being off,” he added.
 The protestors said that as Zahid’s body was fished out it bore marks of attack. “His head and shoulder was badly wounded. It’s a simple case of murder,” they said.
 When contacted a police official said the case was under investigation. “We have released all the youth brought for questioning. Only one of them(name withheld) is under arrest as the mobile of deceased was found with him,” the police official said.
 The official said postmortem report was awaited adding that it was crucial for investigations.
