SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir lieutenant-governor Manoj Sinha said in Jammu on Saturday said that “those found guilty” in the Hyderpora encounter “won’t be spared”, and that the administration is committed to ensuring justice.
Addressing a gathering of Sikhs in Jammu region on the occasion of Gurpurab, Sinha said that matters would be clearer in three to four days and “I would be able to discuss more on the issue (sic)”.
The L-G has already ordered a magisterial probe into the Hydepora encounter in which four people, including the owner of the building where the incident took place, Altaf Ahmad Bhat, and Dr Mudasir Gul were killed. Both were residents of Srinagar.
While the police maintains that Altaf Bhat was killed in the crossfire, it says Gul was an OGW operating with Pakistani TRF terrorist Haidar, alias Bilal, killed along with the terrorist’s local associate, Amir Ahmed of Banihal.
The bodies of Altaf and Gul were first buried by the police at Handwara. After protests by the families of the slain men and a public and political outcry, the bodies were exhumed and handed over to the families on Thursday evening. The two slain terrorists remain buried in Handwara, Kupwara district.
The probe ordered by the L-G is being conducted by the ADC, Srinagar, who has already issued a notice inviting witnesses for recording of statements. The L-G has promised the probe will be conducted in a time-bound manner.
The family of Amir Ahmed of Banihal has also demanded the return of his son who, they say, was an office boy at Gul’s office and not a terrorist.
