Srinagar, September 09 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Indian Army disallowed government officials and locals to look inside a camp in Devar area of Kupwara district where a missing person Manzoor Ahmad Khan was tortured.

Apart from the missing person, Manzoor Ahmad Khan, another man who was beaten ruthlessly by the army was identified as Nasrullah Khan. The incident took place on the evening of 31st August.

Human rights activist and Chairman of International Forum for Justice, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, said that the police officials and locals were disallowed to look for the disappeared person inside the Devar camp after they had requested the army personnel to let them search for the missing person. “Outside the gate of RR camp, 85-year-old Manzoor’s mother Misra Begum waited to be allowed inside the camp to look for her disappeared son who was allegedly tortured by the army personnel,” he said.

Muhammad Ahsan Untoo said, the Devar villagers fear that missing person has been killed in custody during the torture or there is something wrong which they are hiding. Untoo further said that he had filed a petition with the Human Rights Commission of the territory to trace the whereabouts of Manzoor and to seek justice for Nasrullah who was also tortured and was battling for life at Soura Hospital in Srinagar.
