Srinagar, Nov 16: Demanding a judicial probe into the killings of Altaf Ahmed and Mudasir Gul, who were slain in Hyderpora encounter, CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami urged the authorities to handover their bodies to their families for proper burial.
In a statement issued, Tarigami said that allegedly using slain unarmed civilians as human shields is shocking and must be probed through judicial process. “The circumstances in which these killings happened need to be thoroughly probed,” he said.
“The rule of the law is being violated with impunity in Kashmir which is highly unfortunate. From arbitrary arrests of people, including youth to booking them under draconian laws and now allegations of using civilians as human-shields, the situation is turning from bad to worse,” Tarigami added.
