Srinagar: Former minister and Apni Party president, Syed Altaf Bukhari on Wednesday rejected the claims made by Special Investigation Team (SIT) regarding the military operation in Hyderpora Srinagar.

Bukhari said that they don’t accept the probe conducted by police, saying that the ‘killers should be brought to book’.

“Who is police to give clean chit in Hyderpora incident. A judicial probe has to be conducted in this regard and the killers will be identified,” he said.

Pertinently, SIT in charge DIG central Kashmir Sujit Kumar Singh yesterday told reporters that Altaf Bhat was made a human shield by the foreign militant Bilal Bhai, while Dr Gull was killed by foreign militant and that Amir Magray of Ramban was also a militant who was killed in the operation.

The Hyderpora military operation took place on November 15 in which four persons—a foreign militant Bilal Bhai, a youth from Ramban Amir Magray, building owner Altaf Bhat and Dr Mudasir Gul were killed.

The bodies of Bhat and Dr Gul were exhumed after three days from Handwara graveyard and handed over to their families for burial.

Earlier, Bukhari led his party workers to protest against the Delimitation Commission’s draft with regard to the addition of assembly seats in Jammu and Kashmir, which, however, was disrupted by authorities.

After the protest was disrupted, Bukhari said that the future course of action will be decided in a meeting today. (KNO)
