The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Parliamentarians Monday staged a silent protest raising the issue of Hyderpora and Rambagh gunfight demanding time bound judicial probe into the twin incidents and return of dead bodies to their families.
These Parliamentarians also asked BJP led Central Government to revoke 5 August unconstitutional decision with regard to reading down of special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
Reports said that NC Parliamentarians including Dr Farooq Abdullah, Hassnain Masoodi and Muhammad Akbar Lone emerged outside Parliament in New Delhi and staged a silent protest. They were carrying placards and the photographs of those killed in Hyderpora and Rambagh as well as the Lawaypora gunfight.
Four persons were killed in Hyderpora Srinagar gunfight. The families of three slain contest police claim of having any militant links while after uproar, bodies of two persons from Srinagar were handed over to families while the family from Ramban is still waiting for the body of Aamir Wagay.
Three militants according to police were killed in Rambagh gunfight, meanwhile last year Lawaypora gunfight also ran into controversy after father of one of the killed rejected police claims of his son being a militant. Mushtaq Ahmad has since been fighting for his son’s mortal remains as he remains buried in Sonmarg. A grave dug by Mushtaq himself in Pulwama awaits him.
LG Manoj Sinha ordered a Magisterial probe into the Hyderpora gunfight; however, NC Parliamentarians are demanding judicial probe in time bound manner. (KNT)
