Conduct Crime branch enquiry in Omar Farooq’s murder. Spokesman
Kupwara, 22 july: Police yet again detained AIP President Er.Rasheed at Drugmulla Police post and prevented him from visiting Gulgam to offer condolences with the family of 12 year old Omar Farooq, who was murdered with brutality few days back. In a statement issued today party spokesman Adv. Majid Banday said that the way police is constantly preventing Er.Rasheed from visiting the family, it is evident that police is hiding something. He said, “It is obvious that to hide its own professional failures police is creating hurdles in allowing those people to meet the ill-fated family who could speak for them. While the incident has shaken everyone in the entire state, the locals obviously have a reason to be furious as it is not their responsibility to trace out the real designs behind the shameless murder”. Spokesman added that the govt. must accept the demand of the family and that of the entire area that the crime being heinous , should be probed by crime branch and constituting special investigating team may be of not much help as whoso ever has carried out the heinous crime must not be an ordinary criminal. Spokesman further added that after detaining Er.Rasheed in police station Drugmulla , he was deported back in police custody to Handawara and said that police has itself put question marks on its sincerity and designs to resolve the mystery of murder of Omar Farooq.
