Govt must bring in some neutral agency to probe Hyderpora encounter: Sajad Lone
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference president, Sajad Gani Lone on Thursday said that by seeing at the behaviour of the government, he firmly believes that there is something fishy in Hyderpora encounter.
According to news agency KNS, talking to reporters in Kupwara, Lone said that if the government is not scared of anything, then it should bring in some neutral institution to conduct inquiry into the killings in Hyderpora encounter.
“How can an officer of ADC rank inquire into this incident and how can you believe that ADC will go against his government? A neutral agency should be brought in to probe the entire matter,” he said.
He said that they have only one demand at the moment, which is “return the bodies to their families as it is their right where they want to bury them.
“They have the right to grieve over the dead ones. Grieving has become a luxury in Kashmir and government should think about it,” he said.
He said that it is shameful that even bodies of civilians are not being given to their families.
“I want to request the LG that the families have the right to get the bodies of their loved ones. They have the right to perform their last rites. Maybe a mother wants to mourn, a wife a brother, a sister or a father want to mourn over the bodies of their loved ones,” he said.
“I want to appeal to the PM that he is the PM of those who were killed and also of those who killed them, and of those little kids who are grieving over their father’s death; I want appeal PM Modi that for the sake of Allah give the grieving families their right,” he said. (KNS)
