Sopore incident doesn’t add up: Sajad Lone
KD NEWS SERVICE
SRINAGAR, Sep 16: Peoples Conference Chairman and former minister Sajad Lone has tweeted on Sopore incident in which police claimed a youth of having escaped its custody and whose body was later found at Tujjar Shareif, a nearby locality of the town.
“Sopore incident just dosen’t add up. They have done a bad job even at inventing a story. The guilty need to be punished,” Lone tweeted.
Apparently, the PC chairman has taken a jibe on police alleging it of having invented a story on the death of Irfan Ahmad Dar, a 23-year-old youth from Siddiq Colony Sopore.
The police has claimed that Dar was an over ground worker of militants who was arrested and who escaped the custody taking advantage of difficult terrain and darkness.
However, the family of Dar has strongly rebutted the police claims about Dar’s involvement in subversive activities and have termed his death as a case of custodial killing.
