Slain Barzulla youth’s body will be returned to family: Governor tells Er. Rasheed

Srinagar: Lodging strong protest against the administration for not handing over dead body of Mudasir Ahmad Bhat, a slain youth from Barzulla to his family reportedly killed by forces in Kupwara, AIP President Er. Rasheed today met Governor N. N. Vohra and demanded handing over of the slain body to the family without further delay.

Er. Rasheed asked Governor that denying dead body to the family is shameful and interference in religious affairs and the incident has led to the mental torture of the family and the entire locality.

“After performing all the legal formalities including DNA testing, now family is being forced to take to streets,” Rasheed said in a statement.

Governor Vohra, as per the statement, has assured Rasheed that mortal remains of Mudasir will be returned to the family soon.

While raising issues of grave human rights violations at the hands of forces, the statement said, Rasheed told Governor Vohra that he is duty bound to stop the men in uniform from treating themselves above law and humiliating the masses.

Rasheed cited examples where police and other agencies have shown high handedness in south and north Kashmir. He appealed Governor to direct the men in uniform not to humiliate families of militants and ask them to restrain from damaging public properties especially in south Kashmir.

“Kashmiris want a political and dignified resolution to the dispute,” he said. “In most of the cases where violence takes place or youth join armed movement, it is the barbarism and brutalities of police that forces youth to join militant ranks.”
