2010 J&K unrest: Arrest warrants issued against two policemen
Srinagar: A local court on Thursday issued non-bailable arrest warrants against two police personnel in a case related to the death of a teenager during protests in the 2010 summer unrest in Kashmir Valley.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar Rajeev Gupta today issued non-bailable arrest warrants against sub-inspector Abdul
Khaliq and SPO Mohammad Akram in connection with the killing of Wamiq Farooq, a class VII student, at Rajouri Kadal in 2010.
The arrest warrant was issued under section 304 RPC (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) as the court held that there was sufficient evidence against the two policemen as reflected in the reports of the Judicial inquiry and the special investigation team.
The court has asked the Inspector General of Police, Kashmir, to execute the warrants.
Wamiq Farooq was killed on January 31, 2010 when a teargas shell allegedly hit him on the head near Gani Memorial Stadium at Rajouri Kadal in the old part of Srinagar.
Soon after Wamiq`s killing, his father, Farooq Ahmad Wani had filed a complaint before the CJM seeking registration of an FIR under section 302 RPC.
Meanwhile, moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference has welcomed the verdict.
