Unsatisfied by so-far development, Mehbooba calls for taking Shopian-staged encounter case to logical conclusion

Srinagar, March 08 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti, who is unsatisfied by Indian army’s inquiries in fake encounter cases on Wednesday called for taking the killing of three innocent Kashmiris in Shopian staged encounter by the Indian army to its logical conclusion.

Mehboob Mufti talking to reporters in the Shopian district in south Kashmir also demanded government jobs for the victim families.

She was reacting to the court-martial proceedings of an Indian Army Captain involved in the killing of three men in the staged encounter in Shopian’s Amshipora area in July 2020.

“I hope the case is taken to a logical conclusion because we have seen, be it Pathribal or Machhil, it is said there will be action, but ultimately, nothing happens.

“I hope the three innocent labourers who were brutally murdered get justice,” Mehbooba said.

She also demanded government job and compensation to the family of Rashid Dar of Kunan village in Kupwara, whose body was recently found in a forest “after he went missing in army custody two months earlier”.

“He was also an innocent labourer. He was in Army custody and disappeared. Then his body was found. We have no hope of justice, but, I will still say that a thorough probe be conducted.
