Tral was a staged encounter claims Hizb


Militant outfit Hizbul Mujhadeen on Tuesday claimed that one of its former militant Mushtaq Ahmed Chopan was killed by Government Forces in a staged encounter.

Mushtaq according to police was killed when he tried to flee from the custody at police station Tral. Police added that as he tried to flee wearing a burqa, his associated hurled a grenade inside the police station to divert the attention that resulted in his death and injuries to a policeman.

Terming the statement of police as baseless, Hizb spokesperson said that Chopan was killed in a fake encounter.

“One of our associates Shakil Ahmed Kasana alias Ubaidullah was killed in the same fashion by government forces a couple of years back,” spokesperson Hizb, Burhanuddin told news agency CNS over Phone.

“We appeal international human rights organizations to take serious note of these staged killings,” the spokesperson added. (CNS)
