Srinagar: Central Reserve Police Force has submitted the list of its men with names and other details (Nominal Roll) before the Enquiry Committee probing the death of Engineering student Gowhar Nazir who was killed in CRPF action on November 7 at HMT Srinagar.
Soon after the death, the government had ordered magisterial probe while Assistant Development Commissioner Nazir Ahmed Baba was appointed the Enquiry Officer.
The Enquiry Officer said that he has received Nominal Roll from CRPF and the documents submitted by the CRPF will be thoroughly examined on December 1st and 4th. CRPF has provided all the names of the constables and officers who were present on the spot when the unfortunate incident occurred. We have also recorded the statements of a good number of eyewitnesses so far and more witnesses are expected to approach the Commission, Nazir Ahmed Baba told CNS.
All the eyewitnesses recorded their statements without any pressure and for their convenience we had already shifted the venue from DC Office Tankipora to the Office of Sub-Divisional Magistrate (West), Shalteng Srinagar, he said adding that the Commission will hopefully submit its report in the last week of December.
The Enquiry Officer revealed that Jammu Kashmir Police have provided all the important documents related to the incident. We have been taking care of all the aspects. The probe is going in the right direction. We have been thoroughly going into every detail and I appeal every stake holder to have faith in the Commission, he said. (CNS)
