Srinagar, Jul 23: Police on Monday detained AIP President and MLA Langate Er Rasheed at Drugmulla Police post and prevented him from visiting Gulgam to offer condolences with the family of 12-year-old Omar Farooq, who was murdered with a brutality a few days back, the spokesman in a statement claimed.
The spokesman said that the way police is constantly preventing Er Rasheed from visiting the family, it is evident that police is hiding something. “It is obvious that to hide its own professional failures police is creating hurdles in allowing those people to meet the ill-fated family who could speak for them. While the incident has shaken everyone in the entire state, the locals obviously have a reason to be furious as it is not their responsibility to trace out the real designs behind the shameless murder,” the spokesman quoted Rasheed as saying.
He said that government must accept the demand of the family and that of the entire area that the crime being heinous, should be probed by crime branch and constituting special investigating team may be of not much help as whosoever has carried out the heinous crime must not be an ordinary criminal.
The spokesman further added that after detaining Rasheed in police station Drugmulla , he was deported back to police custody Handawara. He said by arresting Rasheed police has itself put question marks on its sincerity and designs to resolve the mystery of the murder of Omar Farooq.
