Srinagar: The People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) on Tuesday said the police’s briefing on the Hyderpora encounter was only a repetition of the “old story” and demanded a judicial enquiry into the incident.

It said there is a strong public perception that the civilians killed in the incident “were made human-shields by security forces”.

“Today’s press briefing of J&K police about last month’s Hyderpora tragic incident is only a repetition of the old story. It does not even slightly give any objective picture of this shocking incident,” said PAGD spokesman Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami said in a statement.

He said the statement seems to be a “concocted cover-up story”.

“It will not suffice the legitimate concerns of the people at large and family of the slain victims.”

“PAGD firmly believes that nothing short of a credible judicial probe will clear the doubts. The administration must, without any further delay, order a time-bound judicial probe,” Tarigami said.

The PAGD is an amalgam of five mainstream political parties in Kashmir.
