Sikh Body Demands Fresh Probe Into The Chattisinghpora Massacre

Darpan News Desk, 20 Mar, 2017
  • Sikh Body Demands Fresh Probe Into The Chattisinghpora Massacre
A Sikh body here on Monday demanded a fresh probe into the Chattisinghpora massacre which claimed the lives of 35 Sikhs on this day in 2000.
 
"After 17 years, the people of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the Sikhs of the Valley, are still waiting for the justice. We urge the state and central governments to nab the culprits of the massacre," chairman, All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee, Jagmohan Singh Raina said in a statement issued here.
 
He said it was "unfortunate" that the government is maintaining "silence" on the issue.
 
"We urge the state and central governments to go for a fresh probe into the incident. If they fail to do so, then we will consider it as a huge injustice with the Sikhs of Kashmir," Raina said.
 
 
"We will not rest till the real culprits of the massacre are brought to justice," he vowed.
 
After the massacre on March 20, 2000, in Chattisinghpora village in south Kashmir's Anantnag district, the security forces claimed to have killed five "militants" responsible for the murder of the Sikhs at a nearby village.
 
However, a CBI inquiry, ordered by the state government after massive protests, revealed that the deceased were civilians who were abducted and killed in a fake encounter.
