“Though such killings have taken place in the past but now, the era has changed and it is unacceptable to people of Kashmir as we have moved far much ahead from the previous scenario,” he said.
He said that matter must be probed and those involved in the act be dealt with strictly.
Wani said the policies are being adopted here through which the situation is being deteriorated and will have serious consequences in the future.
He said arresting and killing people in custody won’t be tolerated by the people of Kashmir.
Earlier, National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah had also demanded a time-bound investigation into the custodial death of a school teacher in Jammu and Kashmir and exemplary punishment to those responsible for the death.
“I had hoped custodial deaths were a thing of our dark past. This is an unacceptable development & must be investigated in a transparent, time bound manner. Exemplary punishment must be handed out to the killers of this young man,” Abdullah had tweeted.
Rizwan Pandit, 28, died in police custody here during the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday, an official had said.
Pandit, who was a teacher at a private school and a resident of Awantipora in Pulwama district, was picked up by the security agencies three days ago, the officer as per reports had said.
Custodial killing of teacher: Kashmir Inc hold joint protest at Jamia Masjid
Srinagar, Mar 21: Various trade bodies on Thursday stage a protest against what they termed as killing of a civilian Rizwan Pandith of Awantipora on Tuesday in police custody.
Carrying placards and raising slogans, the traders held a joint protest at Srinagar’s Jamia Masjid, demanding the killing spree in the Valley be stopped.
“Killing of innocent civilian who was a private school principal is a deep-rooted conspiracy and a planned genocide of people of Kashmir,” the traders said.
Terming the incident as highly unfortunate, Sajad Gul, spokesman of the trade bodies said, “We urge the Indian civil society and international bodies such as Amnesty International to come forward and play its role. If this attitude of the Central government continues there will be serious consequences.”
“How can they kill any innocent without any justification? Civilians continue to get killed and get maimed at the will of trigger happy forces as it is the worst form of human rights abuses and violations in Kashmir,” Gul said.
He said because of the unbridled powers given to the forces and the lack of accountability, every day innocent civilians are brutally killed, which is condemnable in all forms.
Pertinently, JRL had appealed all segments of society including traders, lawyers, bar association, civil society and others to protest against the ‘custodial killing and assaults on Kashmiris’.
Those participated in the protest include KEA, KTMF, KCCI, KTMF(R), FCIK, Beopar Mandal S R Gunj and other trader bodies.

The JKSSB on February 01, 2019 advertised number of posts including the post of junior photographer for home department.
But to the surprise of mass communication candidates, the JKSSB has only asked, those candidates to apply who possess bachelor’s degree in science and diploma in photography from a recognized institute.
“There are number of mass communication candidates who have been struggling to get the job. It is quite unfortunate that JKSSB has not considered us for the post, “said a mass communication candidate, Mudasir Ahmad.
Another candidate, Irshad Ahmad said that authorities at JKSSB should bring necessary changes in the eligibility criteria.
Irshad said it is not fair to deprive them from applying for the post.“I fail to understand, why we have not been considered for the job. The post requires technical qualification, B.Sc is an academic qualification, it has nothing to do with Photography. A mass communication guy has vast know how of the things, “he said.
When contacted, Public Relations Office (PRO), JKSSB, Ashwani Hansa said that the post has advertised in accordance with the indent received from the home department.
