A local court here on Tuesday directed Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Srinagar to register case against a police officer in connection with murder of Shabir Ahmad Mir of Tengpora, Batamaloo. The court also directed the SSP to get the matter investigated.

Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Srinagar Masarat Shaheen directed the SSP Srinagar to file FIR against Dy SP Yasir Qadri and other police personnel after father of the deceased, Abdul Rehman Mir, moved an application before the court.

In his application, Mir stated that the Dy SP and other police personnel entered his house at Tengpora, Batamaloo, here on July 10, 2016, at about 6:45 pm. “I along with the family members was watching TV and police party headed by Yasir Qadri forcibly entered my house and started smashing windows and doors of the house. My wife tried to stop the police officer,” Mir stated in the application.

“But on this the police official was infuriated and he assaulted the applicant and hurled invectives upon his wife,” reads the application.

“My son, Shabir Ahmad Mir, who was present on the spot could not bear beating of his parents and tried to rescue his mother from the clutches of the said police official and other police personnel. On this, the said police official went into rage and started beating my son. Thereafter he opened his pistol and fired two shots into the body of my son at point-blank range. He died on spot.”

The applicant further submitted before the court that the DySP in question has taken law into his hands and acted beyond his powers without any cause, rhyme and reason. “He has committed cold blooded murder of my son,” he pleads.

The applicant further pleaded that he approached the SHO of concerned police station for lodging FIR but he refused to do so.

“Hence, in the light of the application and affidavit sworn by the applicant, SSP Srinagar is directed to lodge the FIR against the concerned official and investigate the matter,” the court said in its order, after hearing the applicant through his counsels.

The court further directed the SSP to get the case investigated by some senior officer not below the rank of Dy SP.

Meanwhile, District Magistrate Srinagar has appointed Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Srinagar, Riyaz Ahmad Wani, as inquiry officer to probe the death of Shabir Ahmad Mir of Tengpora, Batmaloo.

Any person or persons acquainted with the facts of the incident and desirous to depose and record their statements have been asked to appear before the inquiry officer at ADM Srinagar office from July 20 to July 30 during office hours.
