Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Mar 8: Crime Branch of  State Police has lodged an FIR against a Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), a Dy Superintendent of  Police (DySP)  and a retired  DySP in connection with the mysterious death of a Constable driver in his officer’s house in Sainik Colony area of Jammu city in gun-fire.
A senior officer in the Crime Branch told the Excelsior that an FIR No. 9/2013 has  been lodged against SSP Ravinder Singh Jamwal, presently posted as Commandant  in 11th IRP battalion, DySP Daljit Singh of  Sainik Colony in Jammu, presently posted in CID wing at Udhampur and a retired DySP Mohinder Singh.
The officer said that following directions from the top, an FIR has been lodged in this connection and further investigation started. He said the death of Constable Shahid Iqbal Bhat had taken place in the house of  DySP Daljit Singh under mysterious circumstances due to bullet injuries on December 3,  2011.
It may be recalled that Constable (driver) Shahid Bhat, son of Abdul Qayoom Bhat, resident of  Ward No. 8, Rajouri  was deputed with the DySP Daljit Singh. It was then revealed by the officer and others that cop died due to accidental fire with his own gun. The youth was going to be married on December 11, 2011 and family had also distributed his wedding  cards.  Chhanni Himmat Police took cognizance of the matter then and the case was later hushed up with the influence of some police officers. The family of the victim moved from pillar to post in last 14 months  but nothing happened.
About two weeks earlier, the Rajouri citizens in a press conference build up pressure and pleaded the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and DGP Ashok Parsad to take cognizance of the matter and  provide justice to the family by punishing the guilty. They alleged that it was clear murder and  some senior police officers were trying to hush up the matter just to save their skin.
