Srinagar, May 24: Demanding explanation from Jammu Kashmir Police why it doesn’t arrest ‘tainted’ Army Major Leetul Gogai despite his alleged involvement in killings and human rights violations, International Forum for Justice Human Rights JK Thursday said that it will continue to protest against accused Major Gogai till he faces the music.
Farooq Ahmed Dar, the human shield victim, Muhammad Ibrahim Wani the father of slain youth Tanvir Ahmed killed by 53 Rashtriya Rifles headed by Major Gogoi and Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Chairman IFJHRJK staged a silent protest at Press Enclave Srinagar. They displayed placards seeking immediate arrest of Major Gogai who according to them is a habitual offender and sadistic.
While talking to reporters Ahsan Untoo said that at least 8 petitions stand registered before State Human Rights Commission and State High Court against the ‘sadistic Gogai’. “It is ironical that police is showing reluctance in getting this habitual offender arrested. He not only tied a youth with the bonnet of a jeep but also killed an innocent budding handicapped tailor Tanvir Ahmed Wani,” Untoo said.
He said that despite clear cut orders from State Human Rights Commission, the local police is scared of touching the Major. “It was disgusting to see this brutal Major bringing a young girl into hotel. He is licentious and slur on the name of the Institution he is working for,” Untoo said.
Muhammad Ibrahim, the father of the slain youth told Reporters that Major Gogoi is responsible for the death of his son Tanvir. “It was Gogoi who ordered his soldiers to shoot my son. A formal case stands registered against the Major and yet he is roaming free,” he said. (CNS)
