Kunan-Poshpora Mass Rape Proof Of State Terrorism: Geelani

Srinagar: On the completion of 26 years of Kunan Poshpora tragedy, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairperson, Syed Ali Geelani said that the “heart wrenching” incident is a  living proof of the “state terrorism and fascism of India” in Kashmir and it can be assumed that how-grave “war crimes” are committed by the Indian forces in Jammu & Kashmir.

The octogenarian leader on Tuesday in his appeal to the UN Secretary General asked him to conduct the investigation in Kunan-Poshpora incident and other like incidents in “Indian occupied  Kashmir” by the United Nations War Crime Tribunal like it did in Bosnia.

Geelani expressed grief that even after the 26 years of the “inhuman and beastly” act in Kunan-Poshpora, there is still no case registered against accused and nor has been any involved army officer or personal arrested or brought to book.

“This episode is deliberately being hushed up and for this not only the occupational forces of India are creating hurdles but the successive state governments including NC and PDP have also played a criminal role in this regard and till date they have never made any sincere attempt to register any case against the culprits.”

Geelani said that whether it was NC, Congress or the PDP in power, everybody tried to conceal the Kunan-Poshpora incident.

Bandipora Man Implicated In False Case: Hurriyat (G)

Huriyat Conference has alleged that Ab Wahid Mir (Onagam) has been implicated in a false case and said that the state high court should take suo motu cognizance and deliver justice.

“The said detainee since last one year is not being produced in any court. He is innocent and his detention is vengeance. Police is desperate to implicate him in a murder case,” a statement of Hurriyat said.

It said that Ab Wahid Mir was arrested on April 6 in 2016 in court premises. He since last ten months is languishing in central jail Srinagar and was never produced before any court.

Huriyat in its statement said that Police has framed a charge sheet under section 302 and implicating him in a murder case on false grounds, however refuting the charges, Huriyat while terming it as brazen lie, said that for this reason authorities are not producing him before any court. He is in unlawful custody, said Huriyat and police authorities are trying to prolong his detention without assigning any reason.
