Budgam, May 13 (KNS): Family of Mehraj ud din who was killed by CRPF Naka party in Narbal area of central Kashmir’s Budgam district on Wednesday morning contested CRPF claims and termed the killing as “cold-blooded” murder.
Talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Ghulam Nabi, father of slain Mehraj ud din refuted allegation levelled by CRPF over killing of his son. “The claims made by CRPF regarding killing of my son are absolutely unfounded and deceitful. He was murdered in a cold-blood”, Ghulam Nabi said.
He said my son had not ignored the directions of Naka party but was dragged out from his vehicle and was murdered on road. ” He was on way to Srinagar to drop his uncle but when they reached to Narbal, they were dragged out from vehicle and was fired upon”, he said.
Wet eyed Ghulam Nabi told KNS that Naka party of CRPF is now trying to sheild its crime while making concocted statement. “He was shot at chest with a deliberate atempt and claims of forces personnel the he was first asked to stop the vehicle then after ignoring directives he was fired at shoulder ‘ was an absolute lie”, and added, “There is no buyer for such claims”.
He rejected Magisterial probe orders into the killing and demanded impartial and fair judicial investigation into the matter so that elements responsible in the killing will be brought to justice.
Meanwhile Deputy Commissioner (DC) Budgam Tariq Hussain Ganaie told KNS that FIR has been logded into the incident and investigations taken up. He added, “Whosoever will be found responsible in the killing, will be positively taken to task”. (KNS)
