Efforts On By Govt To Shield Gool Firing Guilty: PDP

KL Report


Showing displeasure and dissatisfaction over the report of Special DG BSF Dlip Trivedi on Gool killings, opposition Peoples Democratic Party Friday alleged that efforts are on by the government to shield the guilty rather than punish them.

“We were already aware that the brutal killers off Gool youth won’t be punished and will be shielded by the  government as such case’s have already happen in the past whether it was  Kunan Poshpora, Shopian incident or others. If the guilty won’t be punished people of the state will lose all faith in the political system which will be the huge setback,” PDP chief spokesperson Naeem Akhtar told KNS.

Special Director General BSF Dlip Trivedi has submitted a report to the Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde and has maintained that the BSF along with Police had fired in self defence to save its men and weapons.

Lashing out at state government Akhtar said, “if the government earlier had taken an action against those involved in killing of 120 youth in 2010 crisis it would have set an example for security forces. Unfortunately Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is trying to see on both sides one enjoying the government and second giving full powers to his forces to  kill the innocent people.”

Condemning the indiscriminate arrest of youth in the aftermath of Gool killings he said, “Youth have become a soft target for the government. PDP Patron Mufti Mohammad Syed has already taken this issue with Prime Minster Dr Manmohan Singh and has asked him to take strong action against the culprits.”

“PDP is always against the human rights violation and will fight issues like denial of justice, (AFSPA) and other issues,” he claimed.

Commenting on the sectarian clashes in Budgam district the PDP chief spokesperson said, “National Conference for their vested interests has made situation worse in Budgam. To divert the attention from killings, mis-governance and corruption, National Conference is working on the Shia-Sunni front to divert attention of people.”
