Police file chargesheet in Nowgam murder

Police Tuesday filed the charge sheet in the murder case of Abiroo Shafi Bhat of Khwajapora, Nowgam. 

The accused in the case are Asifa, wife of the deceased, and her paramour moulvi Tanveer Lelhari.

An intensive investigation by police team led by SHO Nowgam police station Syed Showket Bukhari had cracked the murder. 

Bukhari is the investigating officer in the case. The accused have been booked for murder and criminal conspiracy.

The charge sheet was filed before the court of chief judicial magistrate Srinagar. Both the accused, who are under custody, were produced before the court.

 

CHARGESHEET

As per the charge sheet, Asifa had been caught red handed by her husband while talking to the moulvi on phone. The deceased had given a phone number to one of his cousins and asked him to fetch its details.

The wife had, in anger, gone to her maternal home and called up the moulvi. The duo hatched the conspiracy to kill Abiroo and as per the plan the wife kept her minor girl child at her maternal home in Aloochibagh.

The murder plan was executed between 12 and 12.30 am on the night of 10 March 2018 after the wife gave a glass of milk laced with sedatives to the deceased.

The moulvi jumped the wall of the house and entered inside the room through a window, which had been left open by the wife of the deceased.  When Abiroo was in deep slumber and too sedated to resist, the moulvi strangulated him with the assistance of deceased’s wife, Asifa. The moulvi stayed in the house till early morning before jumping the same wall. He took train from Nowgam railway station for his home at Pulwama.

In their confession, the two accused said they were planning to marry and had been in relationship for more than a year. The moulvi, who was very popular in the locality, used to deliver Friday sermons in the nearby mosque and the deceased had invited him for lunch on several occasions.

The deceased had probably got a whiff of the illicit relationship between the two and had informed the local head of Jamiat-e-AhliHadees, about moulvi’s behavior. The moulvi, who taught in a private school in Pampore, had been asked not to deliver sermons thereafter.
