Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh on Saturday mentioned the DNA pattern report of three youths killed in an alleged pretend encounter in Shopian district is anticipated quickly and subsequent motion can be taken accordingly.
On July 18, the Army had claimed that three terrorists had been killed in Amshipura village within the larger reaches of south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
However, the households of the three males from Rajouri recognized them as their relations and had filed a police criticism.
Police had taken the DNA samples of three households from Rajouri district on August 14 for matching it with the DNA of the three youths who had been killed in Shopian.
“The police probe and Army inquiry is moving in a parallel manner. We are working in our own way and have taken and dispatched DNA samples. The report is expected soon,” Mr Singh advised reporters in Rajouri district.
On Friday, the Army mentioned it has discovered “prima facie” proof that its troops “exceeded” powers below the Armed Forces Special Powers Act and has initiated disciplinary proceedings.
Responding to a query in regards to the progress of the police probe into the Shopian incident, the DGP mentioned additional motion could be taken after receiving the DNA report.
He mentioned the Army has asserted in clear phrases that acceptable motion can be taken towards its personnel in accordance with their culpability.
