Srinagar: Expressing dissatisfaction over the unnecessary delay in the results of DNA tests, the families of three missing youth from Rajouri district Friday shot a letter to J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha seeking his personal intervention regarding Amshipora Shopian encounter of July 18.
The families of the trio have said that even after 28 days they are waiting for DNA results and the unnecessary delay shows that something is fishy in the probe.
Mohammed Yousuf, the father of Abrar Ahmad, one of the missing youth, said that even if authorities will take years for probe, “they cannot prove our innocent sons as militants.”
He said that on Friday they called SSP Rajouri about DNA results and in reply he told us to wait till Monday.
“If authorities fail to come up with the DNA reports till Monday, all family members of the three slain youth along with local villagers will march towards Shopian and later to North Kashmir and take the bodies of slain trio back,” Yousuf said.
“The unnecessary delay shows that probe won’t be fair and the authorities are trying to cover up their fake encounter but so far they have failed to do so,” Yousuf said, adding that if authorities fail to declare results of DNA results till Monday they will march towards the burial site of the trio and blame will lie on the authorities.
Meanwhile, the families of the trio have once again requested the authorities to probe the incident in an unbiased and fair way so that they get justice.
Pertinently, the three families had alleged that their sons have been killed in Amshipora Shopian in a ‘fake’ encounter on July 18 after which police took DNA samples of six members of the three families on August 13.
However, the families are still waiting for DNA cross-examination results. KNO
