NEW DELHI: Parties in India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir have slammed a new swell of deaths in police guardianship and the All Parties Hurriyat Conference on Monday called for an inquiry into several incidents of “cold thoroughbred custodial killings ”.
A statement by APHC principal Mirwaiz Umar Farooq expressed grave concern and anguish over “the cold thoroughbred custodial killings of youthful boys”.
He said the victims were arrested and also killed in so- called encounters with zealots, while in police guardianship.
Mirwaiz cited the illustration of Shahid Ahmad Tantray, a occupant of Shirpora Kulgam. He was allegedly killed “during a gunfight with zealots” while in police guardianship.
Tantray was arrested by police as a so called “mongrel fanatic”.
“With these killings, the situation has come minatory as the lives of these arrested youthful men are in grave peril while in guardianship.”
The APHC fervently appealed to “all conscientious people of India and outdoors, and rights organisations” to take note of these killings and raise their voice and asks for a inquiry by independent agencies.
Security officers say a crucial point of the currentanti-India crusade in India- held Jammu & Kashmir is its “mongrel” nature because of the binary life of the alleged zealots. They’ve observed that numerous alleged resistance individualities operating in Kashmir since 2020 lead substantially “regular” lives, including being engaged in conditioning like studying or working for utmost of the day, until they slip out to carry out an assigned attack and also return to their normal routine.
Demanding an unprejudiced inquiry into the Shopian payoff, former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti said that the security situation has deteriorated in Kashmir. “In the name of mongrel bellicosity, Imran Ganie was arrested and also we’re told that he was killed by zealots while in guardianship of police.However, how are common people going to be safe,” the Peoples Democratic Party chairman said, If zealots can kill in police guardianship.
Condemning the recent payoff of migratory labourers by the contended mongrel zealots, she said “There are allegations that it’s the ‘catch-and-kill’ policy which was followed in Punjab where youths would get killed in police guardianship”.
“We demand an unprejudiced inquiry into the circumstances that led to Imran’s death. We’ve fears that as the assembly choices in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh come closer, the atmosphere in Kashmir would be vitiated so that the BJP can exploit the Hindu- Muslim game it has been playing indeed more,” she said.
The Kashmir unit of the Communist Party of India(Marxist) also sought a inquiry into the deaths.
