“Had the bullet that killed Saleem name of militants written on it? Is there any scientific evidence that militant bullet killed Saleem,” a petitioner while mocking at the police claims told the State human rights commission (SHRC) .

The report submitted by the police before the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has stated that the poor bag-maker of Safa Kadal got injured after militants fired indiscriminately to take advantage of darkness to flee from the spot on September 27.

However, the petitioner said that every time when there is a militant killing, police blames militants without presenting any substantial proof. He further urged the SHRC to hold a high level probe into the killing of Saleem and to grant compensation to the next of kin of family members of the slain.

According to a statement , the report submitted by the SSP Srinagar Imtiaz Ismail before the commission comes in response to the petition filed by chairman international forum for Justice and Human Rights Muhammad Ahsan Untoo under case number SHRC/331/Sgr/2018 dated September 28, 2018.

“During the course of investigation, while as cordon was laid, it was found that the militants opened fire indiscriminately during night hours and took advantage of darkness to flee from the spot. In their firing, Muhammad Saleem Malik of Bagwanpora, Noorbagh Safakadal sustained injuries and succumbed,” the report reads.” The investigation officer found five empty cartridges from the spot.” The police report said that investigation into the case was still on.

Mohammad Saleem Malik, 24, received 35 bullets during a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) led by the government forces in Noorbagh area of Srinagar, Kashmir on 27 September 2018.
