Srinagar: A day after three persons were
arrested in connection with the killing of Jamiat-e-Ahli
Hadees (JAH) president Shoukat Ahmad Shah, activists of the
religious group on Sunday took out a rally demanding capital
punishment for the culprits.

Led by acting chief Ghulam Rasool Malik, a large number
of JAH activists took out the rally from the outfit`s
headquarters at Barbarshah after a meeting was convened to
discuss the police claim of solving the case by arresting the
accused.

The participants shouted slogans like `Shoukat Sahib
Kay Qatiloun Ko Phansi Dou Phansi Dou` (Hang the killers of
Shah) and `Pouri Sazish Bayniqaab Karo` (unveil the entire
conspiracy) while passing through Lal Chowk and Gaw Kadal,
official sources said.

Shah was killed in an IED blast on April 8 as he was
entering a mosque in Maisuma area of the city to lead Friday
prayers, evoking widespread condemnation and demands for
identification of the culprits.

Police yesterday arrested Abdul Ghani Dar alias Abdullah
Ghazali, president of `Sautul Haq` (the voice of truth) - a
radical politico-religious outfit and two others -- Javed
Ahmad Munshi and Nisar Ahmad Khan.

`Sautul Haq` is a group of radical elements and many
of them are also members of the JAH.

"Members of the radical outfit and some other radical
elements have been found to be behind the conspiracy (to kill
Shah). It was an attempt by these elements to take control of
Jamiat-e-Ahli Hadees," Kashmir IG of Police SM Sahai had told
reporters.
