Army orders inquiry into Handwara incident
Srinagar, Feb 23 (UNI) The Army today termed as ''unfortunate'' the killing of innocent youth at Dodipora in Handwara yesterday and ordered an inquiry into the incident.
''We have ordered an inquiry into the incident. The probe will start once the situation stabilises because we would like to take the statements of the civilian witnesses also,'' General Officer in Commanding (GOC) XV Corps Lt Gen S S Dhillon told journalists here.
He said the inquiry would go into complete details of the incident.
Lt Gen Dhillon said while three youth -- Amir Akbar, Shakir Wani and Ghulam Hassan Bhat -- were innocent civilians, the fourth Samad Mir was an overground worker of the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT).
