Srinagar: Special Investigation Team of Police formed on Hyderpora military operation on Wednesday said that its investigation is still going on and warned politicians of “appropriate penal” action for “speculative” statements for calling the investigation “Concocted Cover-up Story”, “Ornamental Probe”, “Clean Chit to Killers”, “Fairy Tale of Police” etc.

In a statement, the police said, “Today SIT (Special Investigation Team) came across with several posts on media from some politicians and family members wherein they have cast doubts upon the evidence obtained by SIT so far.”

These people have tried to call it “Concocted Cover-up Story”, “Ornamental Probe”, “Clean Chit to Killers”, “Fairy Tale of Police” etc,” the statement said.

“Pertinent to mention also that vide District Magistrate vide his Order NO DMS/JUDINQUIRY/2838/2845/2021 Dated: 18,11,2021 wherein magisterial enquiry was initiated under section 176 Cr.Pc and accordingly the enquiry officer vide NO ADM(K)/PSINQ/2021/1168/1172 Dated: 18,11,2021 issued a general notice through the electronic and print media and invited members of the general public to record his/her statement if any such person has any acquaintance or knowledge or proof regarding the incident,” it said.

The statement added, “All such person making statements should have approached the inquiry officer with genuine evidence they have, for corroboration or contradiction of the facts surfaced in the case.”

The statement said SIT constituted in the instant case is “still investigating” the matter and “all such persons are once again advised to provide any type of evidence if they have regarding the incident so that every aspect of the investigation is covered and concluded on merits.”

“Such speculative statements from the politicians have a tendency to create a provocation, rumor, fear, and alarm among the general masses or particular section of society,” it said.

The statement added that this kind of approach is against the rule of law and may attract appropriate penal provisions as envisaged under the law.
