A hapless family from Zerhama hamlet of far flung area of border district Kupwara Tuesday appealed authorities to initiate a thorough probe into the alleged murder of 21-year old Shahid Ahmed Wani.

The mother Shakeela Akhtar and grandmother Jana Begum who had arrived in Press Enclave Srinagar to narrate the incident told news agency Kashmir News Trust that Shahid was found hanging from a lofty tree while both his hands tied from the behind. “If my son died by suicide then who had tied his both hands from behind. It was a murder and the culprits are roaming free.” She said,

Both the woman alleged that policemen from Police Station Thregam and Awoora Police Chowki didn’t cooperate or support them. Shakeela while lauding the role of the then SSP Kupwra alleged that one of the officers who was investigating the case asked them to compromise with the people whom she is accusing of murder.

“I firmly believe that my son was killed by the members of his would-be in-laws. The would-be brother-in-law of my son was not willing to tie the knot of his sister with Shahid and he was frequently threatening him of dire consequences,” she said.

Both the women said that police only initiated inquest proceedings and didn’t register an FIR against the suspects.

The wailing mother appealed top police brass including DGP and IGP to thoroughly probe the incident so that those who killed his son will be punished. (KNT)
