Geelani appeals to UN to get encounter episode investigated

Rejecting the Magisterial probe into the killing of three youths allegedly in a fake encounter by security forces, hardliner separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Saturday appealed to UN to get the matter investigated.



Srinagar: Rejecting the Magisterial probe into the killing of three youths allegedly in a fake encounter by security forces, hardliner separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Saturday appealed to UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon to get the matter investigated.
"We appeal to the UN Secretary General to help in
getting the matter investigated by the War Crime Tribunal,"
Geelani, lodged in a police station, said in a statement here.

The chairman of the Hurriyat Conference hardline
faction asked the Kashmir Bar Association to file an FIR in
connection with the killing of the youths on April 30 at
Nadihal-Rafiabad.
Rejecting the Magisterial probe ordered by the state
government, Geelani said "no independent inquiry has been
conducted in similar cases earlier."

The Hurriyat hawk appealed to the Amnesty International
to take note of the incident.
