Bandipora, Nov 19 (KNS): The Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference senior leader Nizam-u-din Bhat on Friday said the Hyderpora incident is a major controversy, which it needs a judicial inquiry rather than a magisterial inquiry. 

Talking to reporters at party office in Bandipora, Bhat, as per Kashmir News Service (KNS), said that in this environment of decisiveness, the death of these three civilians is the death of entire Kashmir. “These killings speak about the attitude of the administration and the prevailing scenario where you have no audience and this incident speaks about the lack of access to corridors of power where you get justice.”

Bhat said that ADM cannot give justice to the victims of such a big controversy and it needs a judicial inquiry rather than a small level magisterial inquiry. “That’s why Sajad Lone has appealed to the authorities for a high level probe into this incident.” 

He said that the LG administration has every mechanism to probe the Hyderpora encounter and have all the powers in their hands. “Whether it be intelligence agencies, security forces, people’s input, their own wisdom and the state wisdom. Then why are they delaying the judicial probe,” he said.

Replying to a question, Bhat said that it is unfortunate that for the last 75 years the political alliances are created in Kashmir on certain issues between India and Pakistan. “Two partitions took place of Kashmir- one in 1947 and another at the time of abrogation of article 370 and bifurcating Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh into two Union Territories,” he said.

He said that in this situation this is his sincere appeal that all the political leaders should unequivoacally stand against the injustice which have been done to the people. 

“Keeping their political aspirations and opinions intact, all the leaders should stand united for the common cause that is the security of Kashmiris,” he said.

He said the situation of all the three divisions is complicated and the people don’t feel safe after the abrogation of article 370. “The people have lost the trust in administration as no one listens to their aspirations and issues,” Bhat added.

Bhat said that every time the people begin to hope that justice would be given to them but every single time something worse happens, which has further alienated the people of J&K. (KNS)
