The Chief Judicial Magistrate of Srinagar has directed the SSP Srinagar to register an FIR against a middle rung police officer and investigate the killing of a Srinagar youth who, according to his family, was killed in cold blood by a DySP in the lawns of his Batamaloo house on July 10.
An application was moved in the court by Abdul Rehman Mir, son of Ghulam Muhammad Mir, a resident of Tengpora Batamaloo Srinagar, urging the court to direct police station Batamaloo to register an FIR against the police officer identified as Yasir Qadri and other police personnel.
“The applicant has submitted that on July 10 at 6:45 pm when they were watching television, a police party headed by DySP Yasir Qadri barged into their house and started smashing windowpanes and doors of the house. The wife of the applicant tried to stop the said police officer, however he physically assaulted her. The son (deceased Shabir Ahmed Mir) could not tolerate the thrashing of his mother and tried to rescue her from the clutches of the police officer. The police officer took out his pistol and fired two shots at him resulting in his on spot death.”
“The applicant has further submitted that the said DySP took law in his own hands and killed his son in cold blood without any reason and rhyme. The applicant has submitted that he filed an application with the SHO Batamaloo who refused to lodge an FIR against the said DySp.”
The order of Chief Judicial Magistrate Masrat Shaheen further reads: “In the light of application and affidavit sworn by the applicant, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Srinagar is directed to register an FIR against the said official and investigate the matter. The SSP concerned is further directed to get case investigated by some police officer not below the rank of DySP.”
The applicant was represented by Advocate Zahoor Ahmed. The case has been listed for next hearing on July 28. (CNS)
