ISLAMABAD: More than five months after the killing of Class 10th student, Bilal Ahmad Denthoo of Kupwara, occupied Kashmir by the then top police officer of the district, despair is gripping the family due to apathy of puppet administration.
According to KMS, Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Handwara, before whom the family filed an application seeking intervention for registration of FIR against the culprit police officer, transferred the case to CJM Kupwara.
The CJM Kupwara heard the case, before transferring it back to CJM Handwara, citing “personal reasons”. Now the Additional Deputy Commissioner Handwara, Peer Muzaffar, who is heading the inquiry into Bilal’s death, has told media that “The concluding report will be submitted in a week.”
This is all despite the puppet Chief Minster Mehbooba Mufti had conversed with the family of Bilal Ahmad Denthoo for half an hour and promised that “justice would be delivered in three days”.
After the meeting, the puppet regime ordered a magisterial inquiry, but according to Bilal’s maternal uncle Ajaz Ahmad Denthoo, “Nothing is known”.
On July 16, Bilal, according to police, was killed by unidentified gunmen. His family contested the police claim and said that he was killed by the then top police officer of the district.
Bilal’s maternal uncle said that the boy had gone out of home to buy soap. He said that at some 100 metres distance from the home, his nephew was shot at by the police officer “who at that time was travelling in his vehicle along with his team” -APP
