J&K SHRC orders probe into disappearance

The Jammu and Kashmir State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has ordered a magisterial probe into the disappearane of a youth four years ago.

The chairman of the SHRC Justice M Y Kawoosa gave the direction on a petition filed by the relatives of one Imtiyaz Ahmad Dar who went missing four years ago from central Kashmir district of Bagam.

The petition seeking justice from the SHRC alleged that two senior police officers gave two different contradicting reports about Imtiyaz.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Budgam in his report had said Imtiyaz was not involved in any militancy related activities and was therefore not arrested by any security agency. However, Inspector General of Police (Kashmir range) in his report mentioned that the youth was a Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) militant active in south Kashmir.
