Rambagh Shootout: Legitimate Doubts Looming Over Its Authenticity, Says Mehbooba

SRINAGAR: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that legitimate doubts are looming over the authenticity of Rambagh shoot out in which police claimed three militants of TRF were killed.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote: “After yesterday’s alleged encounter at Rambagh legitimate doubts are looming over its authenticity. As per reports & witnesses, it seems that the firing was one-sided. Again the official version far from the truth is not in line with ground realities as seen in Shopian, HMT & Hyderpora.”

Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday said that three militants were killed in an encounter at Rambagh in Srinagar.

A police spokesman in a statement said, “Acting on specific information regarding the movement of (militants) Srinagar Police immediately swung into action and established a special Naka to track them down.

The spokesman said that the militants were traveling in a car that Was signalled to stop by the Naka party. They did not stop and instead opened fire on the Naka party which was retaliated, triggering an encounter.”

He said, three militants of the TRF outfit were killed and one among them was the commander.

The slain militants were later on identified as Mehraan Yaseen Shalla son of Mohammad Yaseen Shalla of Jamalata, Arafat Ahmad Sheikh son of Mohammed Maqbool Sheikh resident of Nikloora Litter Pulwama and Manzoor Ahmad Mir son of Late Sonaullah Mir resident of Babhar Pulwama.
