Jammu, Dec 14 (ANI): The families of the two women who were allegedly raped and murdered in Shopian district of Kashmir, refused to accept the findings of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) report and burnt it outside the Jammu and Kashmir High Court.
In their final report submitted to the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, the CBI has given a clean chit to the accused, denying that the two women had been raped before being killed.
The CBI in its report said 22-year-old Neelofar and her sister-in-law Aasiya had drowned.
Earlier this year, the Shopian incident had sparked off an agitation in Kashmir. Protesters were demanding that those responsible for the rape and murder be brought to justice.
On September 12, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court had granted bail to the four policemen who were accused of having a role in the case.
The policemen - Former Superintendent of Police of Shopian Javed Iqbal Mattoo, Deputy Superintendent of Police Rohit Baskota, Station House Officer Shopian Shafiq Ahmed and Sub-inspector Gazi Abdul Rehman - were released on payment of a bond of Rs.50, 000 each.
The four had been accused of destroying evidence related to the case. (ANI)
