Bodies of slain youth
Police has in its recent statement given a fresh twist to the recent gunfight on Srinagar outskirts. Police said that two of the three were OGW’s and inclined to radicalization.
Police said that they have no reason not to believe the version of the army about the incident and added that however they will investigate the matter as the families of slain militants have said that they were innocent and killed in a fake encounter.
One of the families in its application has been quoted in the media as saying, “That the applicants are the maternal uncle and grandfather of the deceased and through the medium of this application wants to draw your kind attention, that the deceased was doing the graduation in Degree College Pulwama in arts subjects and in this regard has told the family members that he has some work at Pulwama on 29-12-2020”.
