Govt Probe In Pulwama Killings An Eyewash, Says Sehrai


SRINAGAR — Tehreek-e-Hurriyat chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Monday said that the probe initiated by the govern­ment in the civilian killings in Kashmir was just “ an eyewash.”

He also said that the “pro-free­dom leadership and workers are being jailed and not allowed to even visit the families of people killed in Kashmir.”

“Such is the height of cruelty that with every killing, entire Kashmir is turned into a military fortress. Internet and other com­munication lines are snapped so that people do not protest even on social media platforms,” he said in a statement. He con­demned clampdown to prevent march to Badamibagh canton­ment.

“We are not being allowed to mourn our slain youngsters. The resentment shown by youth in Kashmir is not just a passion but a growing resent­ment among youth and it is the outcome of unresolved and lin­gering Kashmir issue, unend­ing curbs on political activities, stubborn attitude that has cre­ated political uncertainty in the state,” he added.

Terming the judicial probe ordered by the government into Pulwama massacre as “farce”, he said, “We know the reality and outcome of these so-called probes in which not even a single force personnel is booked let alone punished since the last three decades. In fact they are being awarded and promoted at the cost of human lives”.
