Killer policemen surrender, shifted to Srinagar jail

Srinagar, December 02, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, two policemen involved in the killing of Wamiq Farooq, a class 7th student, were shifted to Srinagar Central Jail after they surrendered before the Court. Wamiq Farooq was fatally hit by a police teargas shell on his head in Srinagar during the 2010 mass uprising in the occupied territory.

Earlier, the Court of Forest Magistrate Srinagar, B A Munshi, had issued fresh non-bailable arrest warrants against Assistant Sub-Inspector, Abdul Khaliq Sofi, and Special Police Officer (SPO), Muhammad Akram, and had directed the SSP Srinagar to execute the warrants and produce the culprits before the court on December 1.

Both policemen surrendered before the Court on Tuesday after which the court directed to lodge them at Srinagar Central Jail. Pertinently on August 22, 2013, Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against Sofi and Akram after – on the basis of a judicial inquiry and police probe – the prima-facie guilt of the culprits was established.
