‘Hyderpora Encounter’: Tarigami urges government to return body of third civilian
Srinagar, Nov 19 (GNS): CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Friday urged the government to return body of Amir Ahmad Magray, a resident of Gool in Ramban, the third civilian killed in Hyderpora, ‘without any further delay’.
“It has been proven beyond any doubt that Magray is a civilian. His father Abdul Latief Magray is a state bravery award winner and now his son has been killed and falsely labelled as a militant which is highly unfortunate”, Tarigami said, as per a statement to GNS.
‘The least the J&K administration could do is to return the body of Magray so that his family could perform his last rites.’
“The government must ensure that those involved in the killing of unarmed civilians are brought to book and punished under law”, the politician said further.
Pertinent to mention here that bodies of two Srinagar residents were handed over to their respective families last night after days of persuasion by the families and leaders of several political parties. (GNS)
