The Srinagar administration on Thursday dug out the bodies of civilians Mohammad Altaf Bhat and Mudassir Gul, who were killed in the Hyderpora encounter, so that they can be handed over to their families. The Jammu and Kashmir administration has ordered the ADM of Srinagar to investigate this encounter. After this encounter on November 15, Umar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti had raised questions on him. These leaders were demanding the handing over of the dead bodies to their families and a probe into the matter.
This is the first time since the outbreak of the Kovid-19 pandemic in March last year that bodies buried under police supervision are being returned to their families. Officials said that the bodies are being brought from Handwara to Srinagar along with a police team. Initially the bodies were buried in Handwara itself.
The families of three of the four killed in the encounter claimed that they were innocent. At the same time, political parties have also come out in support of the families and a peaceful sit-in was held under the leadership of former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. Hours after Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha ordered a magisterial inquiry into the deaths, Srinagar Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Ejaz Asad appointed Additional District Magistrate Khurshid Ahmed Shah as the investigating officer.
Shah issued a public notice, urging those who wish to record their statements in connection with Monday’s encounter. They can contact their office within 10 days. Four people were killed in the encounter that took place on Monday.
A magisterial inquiry has been ordered amid protests by family members of three of the four people killed in the encounter on Monday. They claim that the deceased were innocent. According to the police, a Pakistani terrorist and his local accomplice Amir Magrey and two civilians Mohammad Altaf Bhat and Mudassir Gul were killed in an encounter on Monday at a building in Hyderpora.
It is alleged that an illegal call center was being run in this building and it was the hideout of terrorists. Members of the families of Bhat (the building owner), Gul (tenant) and Magrey (Gul’s office boy) are protesting against his killing. They allege that it is ‘murder’. The relatives of Bhat and Gul had been camping in the Press Colony since Wednesday morning to pressurize them to take back the bodies.
Security has been tightened in Jammu and Kashmir in view of the tension
