Police trying to sabotage ceasefire efforts before it could take off: Er Rasheed

Srinagar, May 17: Ridiculing state DGP’s appeal to militants to utilize the opportunity of ceasefire and return to their families independent lawmaker and MLA Langate Er Rasheed has said that even if Delhi shows some sincerity vis-a-vis ceasefire but security agencies, especially Jammu and Kashmir Police, will leave no stone unturned to fail the move as their vested interest with the violence has become an industry.
Addressing a press conference in Srinagar on Thursday Er Rasheed said that a police officer in Handwara has already begun the operation to sabotage the ceasefire process, obviously at the behest of his seniors.
Er Rasheed said: “arrest of Ishfaq Ahmad Wani by Handwara police in alleged stone pelting case has exposed the dirty and notorious mindset of Jammu and Kashmir police as the same SP who was begging before Ishfaq when his wife was killed intentionally by a bullet of men in uniform, proved so shameless that he summoned the victim to his police station and put him in lockup thus making sixteen-month-old motherless baby cry in isolation.
“I as the public representative informed chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and police chief about the incident whose intervention finally helped Ishfaq to get released Thursday afternoon,” he said.
Er Rasheed said that “despite being women herself, it took chief Minister 24 hours to wake up and feel the pain of a baby whose mother was shot dead by police and father locked up in a police station.”
He said, “it is obvious that the chief Minister has compromised everything for the chair and left people at the mercy of the men in uniform.”
Er Rasheed said that the said SP has created havoc in the entire area and has crossed all limits for the reason he is enjoying the patronage of power corridors.
Er Rasheed added that dozens of videos circulating in social media are ample proof to conclude that the black sheep in Jammu and Kashmir Police have brought a bad name to the entire police force, which otherwise has a good number of God-fearing and pro-Kashmir elements in it.
Er Rasheed said that booking of the leaders of Jamat e Islami and other pro-resistance parties in Ganderbal and other parts of the valley has unmasked the ugly face of Jammu and Kashmir Police.
He said “the men in uniform, especially Jammu and Kashmir Police, are the biggest beneficiaries of turmoil and bloodbath. Most of the Police officers have made huge assets by not only sucking money from innocent Kashmiri’s but also have blackmailed and looted Delhi. Unfortunately, most of these Police officers are the locals who have forgotten that they have to die someday and get buried in their native graveyards.”
Er Rasheed said that under such circumstances the Prime Minister’s visit is nothing except an attempt to mislead the world community as he has been constantly giving the notion that whatsoever is happening in Jammu and Kashmir is being done by the miscreants and Pakistani agents and is no way different than a law and order problem.
While appealing the masses to observe complete shutdown on 19th May, Er Rasheed said that AIP will receive PM Modi with black flags so as to make world community realize that India is not serious and sincere in resolving the issue.
Er Rasheed appealed the people of Jammu, Ladakh, Pir Panchal and Chenab Valley to support the strike call for the largest interest of the people of the state.
