The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the Hyderpora encounter Wednesday threatened legal action against political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir for making ”speculative” statements about the investigation.
In a statement issued by the police here, the SIT chairman said the probe team has come across social media posts from political leaders and family members casting ”doubts upon the evidence obtained by SIT so far”. ”These people have tried to call it ‘Concocted Cover-up Story’, ‘Ornamental Probe’, ‘Clean Chit to Killers’, ‘Fairy Tale of Police’ etc.,” it said.
”Such speculative statements from the political leaders tend to create a provocation, rumour, fear and alarm among the general masses or particular section of society. This kind of approach is against the rule of law and may attract appropriate penal provisions as envisaged under law,” the chairman said in a statement.
It said the government had ordered a magisterial probe into the incident, and all such person making statements should have approached the inquiry officer with genuine evidence they have, for corroboration or contradiction. ”The SIT constituted in the instant case is still investigating the matter; all such persons are once again advised to provide any evidence if they have regarding the incident so that every aspect of the investigation is covered and concluded on merits,” the statement said. Meanwhile, the father of Amir Magray, one of the four persons killed in the Hyderpora encounter in Srinagar, rejected the police probe, which suggested that his son was a militant and said he was moving the High Court seeking the return of his body.
On Tuesday, the special investigation team (SIT) of the Jammu and Kashmir Police, probing the Hyderpora encounter, said. At the same time, one civilian was killed by a foreign terrorist, the owner of the building and a local ”militant” (Magray) died in the crossfire after being used as a ”human shield” by the hiding terrorist.
A Pakistani terrorist and three other persons were killed in Hyderpora on November 15, and the police had claimed that all the slain men had links to militancy. However, the families of the three, alleging foul play, had said that they were innocent, prompting the police to order the inquiry.
This was one of the rare operations carried out jointly by the army and the Jammu and Kashmir Police within the city limits.
