Shopian killing: Army files its version

Hundreds on Wednesday joined the funeral procession of Rayees Ahmad Ganai, who died in a hospital here after suffering a gunshot injury in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district on Saturday.

Javed Ahmed Bhat, 20, and Suhail Javed Lone, 24, were killed and few other civilians injured when the Army opened fire on a stone-pelting mob in Ganowpora village on last Saturday.

The J&K police has registered an FIR No 26/2018 PRC under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder) and 336 (endangering life) against Army's 10 Garhwal Regiment for killing the two youth. However, the demand was rejected by the chief minister Mehbooba Mufti of PDP saying the state government had already ordered a magisterial investigation of the incident.

While the Army maintained it followed the standard operating procedure to deter the protesters, the Defence Ministry is silent on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's claim in the Jammu & Kashmir Assembly on Monday that Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman gave consent for filing of an FIR against Army men.

A BJP legislator, R.S. Pathani, had demanded the FIR against the Army, including a major, should be withdrawn in view of the attack by the stone pelters on an Army convoy. "The government should arrest all the army personnel named in the FIR", opposition leader Ali Sagar said while speaking in the Assembly during the discussion on Shopian killings.

As mourners kept pouring into the village from different parts of south Kashmir, where Shopian district is located, four rounds of funeral prayers were offered for the youth. Do we take her silence to mean yes. Seven army men including Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) were injured in the stone pelting on their convoy.

The police on Wednesday incorporated the army's version in the FIR in which it said the firing was in self-defence. A Major, who led the Army personnel at the time of the incident, was also mentioned in the FIR.

Kashmir Reader contacted SSP Shopian, Sri Ram Dinkar, who acknowledged that army has filed their version of the incident. "Whether police is treating it as an FIR or not will be for the police to comment upon", the spokesperson said.
