IIOJK authorities hushing-up Shopian fake encounter: Untoo » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, October 01 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Chairman of International Forum for Justice and Human Rights, Mohammed Ahsan Untoo, has deplored that the occupation authorities are trying to hush-up the extrajudicial killing of three Rajouri labourers by Indian troops.

Mohammed Ahsan Untoo in a statement issued in Srinagar expressed serious concern over the arrest of two persons by Indian police in connection with the killing of the three labourers, who were killed by the troops in a fake encounter in Shopian in July, this year.

He said whenever such incidents of innocent killings happen the authorities arrest some irrelevant persons or low-ranking personnel of army or police to hush up the serious crimes. He said that killing of innocent people in Machil, Khrew, Kupwara, Brakpora, Aloosa, Bandipora and Pathribal fake encounters proved beyond any doubt that all these encounters were stage-managed, which were accepted by the Indian military establishment only after public outcry and questions by human rights groups.

“Not a single officer from police or army has been indicted or arrested, so far, who are the real culprits because they plan these horrific incidents to get promotions and monetary benefits,” he added.

Mohammed Ahsan Untoo appealed to the world community to come forward and investigate all such cases so that killers and culprits are brought to book and justice is done to all those innocents who have become the victims of this state terrorism.
