He said that on Friday, they called SSP Rajouri about DNA results and in reply, he said “We should wait till Monday.”

“If authorities fail to come up with the DNA reports till Monday, all family members of three slain youth along with local villagers will march towards Shopian and later to north Kashmir and will take the bodies of slain trio back,” Yousuf said.

“The unnecessary delay shows that probe won’t be fair and the authorities are trying to cover up their fake encounter but so far they have failed to do so,” Yousuf said, adding that if authorities fail to declare results of DNA till Monday, “we will march towards the burial site of the trio and blame will lie on the authorities.”
