Court directs DM to produce case diary in death of Aloochibagh youth

A local court here directed district magistrate Srinagar to produce case diary before it into the death of Allochibagh youth Muhammad Yaseen Sheikh who drowned after he was allegedly chased by cops last year. 

The directions came after prosecution told the court that the case diary have been submitted before the district magistrate.

The victim’s family, through counsel advocate Marouf Khan is seeking directions to police for registration of FIR against Mudasir, Adil and Zahid, special police officers posted in police station Shergari.

The police had initiated investigation into the death of Sheikh under section 174 CrPc (accidental/ mysterious death). However, victim’s family alleged that “Sheikh was chased to death by the accused persons and pleads for registration of murder case against them.”

“The court had earlier directed police to produce case diary before it on 18 June. However, today the prosecution told the court that the police had submitted case dairy before district magistrate Srinagar,” advocate Marouf told Greater Kashmir.

He added that now the court of forest magistrate Srinagar Muhammad Rafiq Chak has directed the district magistrate Srinagar to produce case diary before it by or before 26 June 2018.

Advocate Marouf Khan submitted before the court that Sheikh “was murdered by the accused before witnesses after he resisted the act of cops to take away his money and memory chip on 24 June 2017.”

He also stated that instead of taking action against the accused, the police “put the witness behind bars, beat him and threatened him not to disclose factual details to anyone.”

“The accused jointly took away Rs 2000 and a memory card forcibly from the victim to which he resisted. Annoyed by the lawful resistance showed by the victim to protect his life and property for being stolen by the accused cops, the victim ran away. The accused cops chased him and the victim jumped into flood spill channel to save himself from the clutches of the accused and their unlawful activities,” advocate Khan told the court.

He further submitted that “the victim while drowning cried for help but the accused cops didn’t allow anyone to save him.”

He said that the family has time and again approached police station Shergari with application for registration of murder case against accused “but the police refused to perform its duty.”
