SRINAGAR — People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) on Tuesday termed the latest statement of police about the Hyderpora incident as a concocted cover up story, saying that nothing short of a credible judicial probe will clear the doubts.
In a statement issued to the news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO), PAGD spokesman, M Y Tarigami said that today’s press briefing of J&K Police about last month’s Hyderpora tragic incident is only a repetition of an old story. “It does not even slightly give any objective picture of this shocking incident,” he said.
“There is a strong public perception that the civilians killed in the incident were made human shields by the security forces and the latest statement of the police seems to be a concocted cover up story. It will not satisfy the legitimate concerns of the people at large and family of the slain victims,” Tarigami said.
“PAGD firmly believes that nothing short of a credible judicial probe will clear the doubts. The administration must, without any further delay, order a time bound judicial probe,” the statement added.
