‘Police is trying to show this murder as suicide or love triangle’
Srinagar, Jan 28: Still after passing 25 days of the mysterious murder of a 20-year-old Umar Ishaq Mir, Police are clueless, causing apprehensions among people who staged a protest Wednesday in Press Enclave against the lazy investigations of the police.
A village headman’s (Sarpanch’s) son was found dead on January 4th in Tujjar area of Sopore town in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district. The deceased was lone son of his parents and sole breadwinner of the family which included 5 sisters.
Omar was a student of 12th class.
“We all relatives were on the graveyard of his uncle on his 5th death day and there was a lot of dust, then Omar went to home and told sister to boil water for him till he comes back,” said Waseem, cousin of Omar.
But Omar goes missing and despite locals searching throughout the night, his dead body was recovered only on the next morning on a bank of stream. “His arms were tied inside the Pheran and head was dropped in the water,” said Javid Abdullah, adding “we found injuries on his shoulders, neck and head.”
On 5th day after his death, his mobile phone was found on the death spot which was dry. As per locals, on 15th day, two persons were searching in the night in that place adding to more suspicion.
“Police is trying to show this murder as suicide or love triangle to escape the duty of investigations,” said one relative.
When contacted SSP Sopore, Abdul Qayoom, he responded: “why are you worried about this (Aap ko kya paraishani hai), let them protest.”
