Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRINAGAR—Pro-free­dom lead­ers and or­ga­ni­za­tions have paid rich trib­utes to Sheikh Tan­veer Sultan of Bem­ina, Srinagar, and de­manded im­par­tial probe into his cold blooded mur­der.

Sheikh Tan­veer Sultan was shot dead by In­dian po­lice dur­ing the search of a pas­sen­ger bus at Kud on Srinagar-Jammu High­way on Mon­day.

The All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence Chair­man, Syed Ali Gi­lani, in a state­ment is­sued in Srinagar con­demn­ing the killing of the youth de­manded an im­par­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion by some in­de­pen­dent agency into the in­ci­dent so that the in­volved per­son­nel were brought to book. He also called for peace­ful demon­stra­tions af­ter Fri­day prayers, to­mor­row, against the killing.

The Chair­man of Hur­riyet fo­rum, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, in a state­ment in Srinagar, termed the killing of Tan­veer Sultan as un­for­tu­nate.

He said that in­no­cent killings in the oc­cu­pied ter­ri­tory should be a mat­ter of con­cern for the in­ter­na­tional hu­man rights bod­ies and it was their re­spon­si­bil­ity to stop such in­ci­dents. He also de­manded im- par­tial probe into the mur­der.

The APHC Gen­eral Sec­re­tary, Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah, in a state­ment in Srinagar, de­scrib­ing the killing of Tan­veer Sultan as an­other gift of Me­hbooba Muftiled regime to the Kash­mir said that Me­hbooba must con­fess that the killings were part of her fa­ther’s vi­sion. “The worst part is that to ap­pease her mas­ters in Delhi, the pup­pet rulers are jus­ti­fy­ing the in­no­cent killings in ev­ery way,” he de­plored.

Hur­riyet lead­ers in­clud­ing Farida Be­henji, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Shab­bir Ah­mad Dar, Imtiyaz Ah­mad Reshi, Ghu­lam Nabi War and Muham­mad Ah­san Un­too, and del­e­ga­tions of Tehreek-e-Hur­riyet, Demo­cratic Free­dom Party, Mus­lim League, JKLF, JKSM, Dukhtaran-e-Mil­lat and other or­ga­ni­za­tions vis­ited Bem­ina and ex­pressed sol­i­dar­ity with the be­reaved fam­ily. The Jammu and Kash­mir Lib­er­a­tion Front, Jammu Kash­mir Na­tional Front and Mus­lim Deeni Ma­haz in theis state­ments in Srinagar ex­pressed sol­i­dar­ity with the ag­grieved fam­ily and de­manded trans­par­ent in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mur­der.—KMS
