Srinagar: Justice delayed is justice denied. This maxim aptly reflects most of the civilian killings’ in strife- torn Kashmir.
Justice continues to elude family members of 13-year-old student Wamiq Farooq, who was killed in security forces’ action on January 31 last year.
For past one year, family members of Wamiq have been running from pillar to post to seek justice but it has been elusive to them. Wamiq was killed, when a tear smoke shell fired by the security forces’ hit him in head near Ghani Memorial stadium Rajouri Kadal in Srinagar.
“Our son was innocent and killed in cold-blood by security forces’. We will not rest until killers of our son are given stern punishment.
It has been one year since we are running from pillar to post to seek justice,” Farooq Ahmed Wani, father of deceased told Agence India Press.
Even though the judicial enquiry in the case had already confirmed that the boy died due to smoke shell, fired toward Wamiq without any provocation, the erring cops are yet to be punished.
It may be recalled here that killing of Wamiq had evoked massive protests’ and clashes in summer capital. At least 112 civilians were killed in recently concluded summer unrest. (AIP)
