Srinagar, April 29:
The Jammu and Kashmir Police have refused to provide documents regarding its completion of all legal formalities before the arrest of school principal Rizwan Assad Pandit who was killed in police custody last month.
The refusal has come in response to an RTI application filed by an activist in the Valley. Calling the application “vague”, the police have also refused to provide a copy of the FIR filed after the arrest of the school principal.
“The information sought is vague and doesn’t disclose as to which copy of FIR needs to be provided,” read the police response to the RTI filed by activist Raja Muzaffar.
“However, it is to inform that certified copy of FIR can be obtained from the concerned court within whose jurisdiction the alleged offence has been committed. Further, the subject (Rizwan Pandit) was arrested in connection with FIR No 56/2017 U?S 302, 307 RPC 7/27 A Act of Police Station Panthachowk Srinagar,” the police added.
