Gilani pays homage to advocate Regoo
Srinagar, February 02, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has paid rich tributes to renowned Kashmiri advocate, Ghulam Mohiuddin Regoo, on his 15th martyrdom anniversary and demanded stern punishment for the men in uniform involved in his killing.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued from in Srinagar from New Delhi, while stressing the perusal of the case, said that in civilised societies legal institutions take suo moto action in such cases and added that courts in Kashmir were not free and thus no action was taken and killers were roaming free.
He said that a joint team of 17 Jaat, Special Operation Groups and notorious government gunmen, Papa Kishtwari, had arrested advocate Reego on February 1, 1998, and blatantly killed him during custody. On February 3, family members recovered his body from roadside, which was axed by killers in several pieces, he added.
Syed Ali Gilani said that Indian army Major, S M Ponia, SP, Tahir Kausar and SHO, Mushtaq Sadiq were involved in the killing but the puppet administration didn’t initiate any action against the said officials and even they were accorded awards and elevated to higher positions.
He said that the ex-member of the so-called MLA of National Conference, Mushtaq Ahmad Kuchay played a key role in saving the killers.
Syed Ali Gilani stated that the case regarding the assassination of advocate Regoo had been listed at International Court of Justice in Geneva and the hearing is expected this year. He stressed upon the quarters concerned to gear up for the perusal and fallow up of the said case.
Paying rich tributes to Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Reego, the veteran Hurriyet leader said that he was deeply attached with the ongoing movement and his martyrdom had created an irreparable loss.
