Govt to set up district-level SITs on deaths in unrest

JAMMU: Special Investigation Teams (SITs) will be set up for time-bound probe into deaths that took place during the unrest in Kashmir Valley last summer, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti announced today.

The State Government will also resume the process of reviewing the cases of those held under the Public Safety Act (PSA), she told the Legislative Assembly here.

“I want to tell you, we will constitute Special Investigation Teams (SIT) at district-level which will have to give time-bound reports. And if there is a need for anything further, we will go ahead,” Mehbooba said while responding to opposition demand for a judicial probe into the deaths during mob control by security personnel during the 5-month unrest.

She was replying to a discussion on the Kashmir situation under Adjournment Motion moved by the opposition members. (AGENCIES)
