SRINAGAR: Kashmir range inspector general of police Vijay Kumar visited the family of a civilian, who was killed in a terror attack in Sopore earlier this week, in the HMT locality of the city on Saturday and assured them of an impartial investigation. Kumar also offered to show the family CCTV footage to prove that Bashir Ahmed Khan, 65, was killed by terrorists and not CRPF men.
Family members of the deceased had accused CRPF personnel of killing him after terrorists opened fire on them from inside a mosque at Nowpora crossing in Model Town of Sopore on July 1.
“I heard their grievances and cleared all aspects. I assured them of an impartial investigation into the incident. I also offered to show them CCTV footage (of the incident) if they wish to see the same,” Kumar said.
Police maintain that Khan fell to terrorists’ bullets when they started firing on a CRPF patrol party from inside the mosque, killing a CRPF trooper and injuring three other paramilitary men.
In a video statement shared on social media, Khan’s son Suhail Ahmad had alleged that CRPF personnel “dragged my father out of his car and shot him dead”.
On the fateful day, Khan was travelling from Srinagar to Sopore to fetch a domestic help.
