Asks army to come clean over Qaziabad Encounter
Srinagar 2 June: Asking New Delhi to come clean over ceasefire issue, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has said that the horrible incident at Nowhatta involving CRPF personnel and resulting in death of 21 year old Kaiser Ahmad and injuring his colleague Younis, has exposed who wants to sabotage the so called ceasefire. In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “Govt. must answer if there was no deployment around Jamia Masjid area, what compelled CRPF vehicle to enter the mob and provoke masses, who were peacefully protesting against the desecration of the Jamia Masjid at the hands of security forces few days back. It is unfortunate that national media is projecting just one side of the story and trying to prove that the mob attacked the CRPF vehicle. The CRPF personnel should have kept in mind that people were very angry and furious not only in Nowhatta area but entire Kashmir after forces had desecrated Jamia Masjid. It was a wise decision not to deploy forces around Jamia Masjid but yet again the black sheep entered the mob just to provoke and find an excuse to display their brutal power. It is worth to mention that minutes before Nowhatta incident the same CRPF vehicle had hit a man near Khanyaar”. Er. Rasheed added that running vehicles over protesters has become a new operation for security forces and seems that they are copying Israelis, who do such disgraceful inhuman acts in occupied Palestine. Er. Rasheed said on one hand security agencies are claiming high moral ground over ceasefire issue but from south to north the security forces are carrying routine operations without giving them hype or justifying them with lame excuses. He said “army needs to come clean over its claim of an encounter that took place in Qaziabad area, resulting in killing of two Persons, claimed to be militants. Not only that the locals had various reservations about the authenticity of the encounter but many claim that they could hear the cries of the deceased people before being shot dead. Army must reveal the identity of the slain militants and also explain, why the dead bodies were buried some 60 kms away from the encounter site”.
