Kashmir rights panel orders arrest of senior cop

Tuesday December 20, 2011 05:21:58 PM, IANS

Srinagar: In a significant development, Jammu and Kashmir's State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) Tuesday ordered the arrest of a senior police officer heading a special investigating team (SIT) that was probing the disappearance of a local youth in 2007.

The SHRC issued arrest warrants against the deputy superintendent of police (headquarters) south Kashmir Anantnag district for failing to comply with the directions of the commission.

"The SHRC today ordered the arrest of the police officer and seizure of all the investigation record to be produced before the commission," sources in the SHRC told IANS.

The SHRC has ordered that all the investigation records, including case diaries etc. prepared by the SIT headed by the police officer up to July 4, 2011, be produced before the rights panel.

The SIT had been constituted to probe the 2007 disappearance of a local youth named Nazir Ahmad Mir, who belonged to Zadoor village of Anantnag district.

Gull Muhammad Mir, the father of the disappeared youth, had filed two petitions before the SHRC in 2008 and 2009 seeking the whereabouts of his son who allegedly had been called by his fiance to the local bus stand in 2007 from where some unidentified people kidnapped him in a waiting auto-rickshaw.

Gull Muhammad Mir had also approached the state high court that had given police three weeks' time to complete the investigations into the youth's disappearance.

Source said the SIT headed by deputy superintendent of police (Headquarters) Anantnag had closed the investigations as "youth untraced". The SHRC has now sought all the relevant records and evidences based on which the case had been closed by the SIT.

This is the first time since the rights panel was constituted in Jammu and Kashmir in 1997 that it has ordered arrest of any senior police officer for non-compliance of the panel's directions.
