Why cant police identify killers within its own ranks?
Srinagar: Awami Itihaad Party (AIP) president and MLA Langate Er Rasheed today visited HMT Srinagar to offer his condolences to the family of Late Gowhar Dar who was martyred by security forces on eve of PMs visit to Kashmir.
Speaking on the condolence meet Er Rasheed paid rich tributes to Gowhar and condemned govt. for its failure to arrest the killers and alleged that security agencies have made life of youth of the locality a hell, who have been genuinely protesting against the killing. Er Rasheed said. Govt. has to explain if it can ruin the career of hundreds of youth allegedly involved in stone pelting, why it cant identify the killers of Gowhar and take them to task.
If police doesnt often take much time in claiming to have identified and killed those behind attacks on security forces, how come is it possible that it could not find out the black sheep and killers in its own ranks.
CRPF and police seem to be blaming each other for Gowhars killing as a part of their well drafted plan to cover the killing. He further added that neither peace can be achieved by killing youth nor can be Kashmiris terrorised and forced to give up their demand for peaceful resolution of Kashmir dispute.
Er Rasheed asked govt. to remove the CRPF camp without further excuses as the demand being projected by the inhabitants of the area is genuine beyond doubt.
