Untoo demands probe into civilian killings in IIOJK

Srinagar, November 20 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Chairman of International Forum for Justice Human Right JK (IFJHRJK), Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, has demanded a probe into civilian killings by Indian troops in the Hyderpora fake encounter.

Muhammad Ahsan Untoo in a statement issued in Srinagar appreciated the administration’s decision to return bodies of the civilians, Altaf Ahmad Butt and Dr Mudasir Gul, who were martyred in Hyderpora incident to their families. However, he said that burial of bodies is a constitutional right of the people of Kashmir and returning the same should not be portrayed as a favour. He added the bodies of martyrs that were snatched by the occupation authorities should be returned to their families.

Untoo said, the body of Amir Ahmad Magarey who was also martyred in the Hyderpora staged encounter should be returned to his family. He added that the bodies of Muzaffar Shaikh, Junaid Sehrai, class 7 student Mosin Akmal, Aijaz Muqbool, Zubair Ahmad Lone, Irfan Ahmad, Athar Mushtaq Wani, Aijaz Maqbool and other martyrs should also be handed over to their families for a dignified burial.

The IFJHRJK Chairman said taking away the bodies of martyrs smacks of callousness and violates constitutional and human values. He also called for a full-fledged probe into the civilian killings and sought justice for the family of victims.
