Zainakot Killing:Family wants’ probe report to be made public


Srinagar: The family of Zainakot youth Gowhar Nazir Dar who had died after a tear gas shell allegedly hit by CRPF hit his head in November last year Monday alleged that despite the completion of the magisterial probe, government is no mood to made the report public, let alone punishing the culprits.
Nazir Ahmed Dar a resident of Zainakot HMT Srinagar told CNS that authorities had ordered a magisterial probe into the killing of his son Gowhar Nazir Dar who died in CRPF action last year. 
“Additional Deputy Commissioner Nazir Ahmed Baba was appointed inquiry officer. We produced 18 witnesses before the inquiry committee who all held CRPF guilty of killing my son. Even after the expiry of six months, government is mute over the outcome of the probe report. Neither the government wants to inform us not it is ready to make the findings public. This is injustice towards the family who lost their beloved son who was just 18 years old at the time of death,” Dar said.   
When contacted, Additional Deputy Commissioner Nazir Ahmed Baba told CNS that he completed his job and submitted the probe report to the government. “The report is lying in Home Department and it is they who have take a call on it,” he said.
