Clean chit to Indian forces in Hyderpora encounter not surprising|: Mehbooba

Srinagar: In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President, Mehbooba Mufti, has said that the clean chit given by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to the Indian forces’ personnel involved in the Hyderpora fake encounter is not surprising maintaining that the inquiry was to “cover-up a botched operation”.

Mehbooba Mufti was reacting to the SIT ruling out any foul play by the Indian forces’ personnel in the incident in which four persons were martyred during the intervening night of November 15 and 16, 2021.

Mehbooba Mufti in a tweet said, SIT’s clear chit to the armed forces in Hyderpora encounter isn’t surprising. She said that it was purely a charade to cover up a botched up operation & absolve those culpable for killing innocent civilians. “How can one expect justice when they themselves are judge, jury & executioner?” she asked.
