JAMMU, Sept 3: Expressing its concern over denial of court to order SIT probe into minority civilian killings in Jammu and Kashmir during past around three decades, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said that minorities are finding no takers of their demand and BJP Government has also failed to come solid on its promise into the matter.
Addressing a press conference here today, AAP leader and DDC member T S Tony said, “A petition was filed in Supreme Court for a SIT probe into minority killings by terrorists in last three decades but court has denied taking it into consideration asking the appealing organization ‘We The People’ to approach Union Government.”
Tony said Supreme Court was a prime expectation for minorities to hold probe but their expectations have died now. He further reminded Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) about its promise made with the minorities before elections to investigate these killings and asked BJP to come concrete on slogan and frame a high level SIT to hold in-depth probe in all minority civil killings that have been faced by J&K in last three decades or so.
“BJP talks high of all this but is even failing to start an investigation over the demand of minorities and this all shows that Governments’ insensitive approach towards this human issue,” the AAP leader said.
Mentioning about a recent notification of J&K for providing Rs 25 lakh ex-gratia to the kin of PRIs killed by militants, Aam Aadmi Party demanded that a similar policy be notified for all civilian killings in Jammu and Kashmir and victims of these civilian killings be given proper rehabilitation and ex-gratia.
