Lawaypora Encounter: Technical evidence reveals Aijaz, Ather first reached Hyderpora then to encounter site, says Police

Says ‘Still investigating all possible angles of case’
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir police Friday said that technical verification of the slain trio has revealed that two among the three slain were radically inclined and were OGWs of Lashkar-e-Toiba outfit now TRF.
In a statement issued here on Friday the police spokesman said that the Srinagar encounter started with army inputs and eventually fructified into a joint operation of Army, CRPF and Police.
“After the cordon was laid, militants lobbed grenade from inside and fired upon the search party. Although as per SOP militants were repeatedly appealed by the troops to surrender in the evening and again in the morning. However, instead of surrendering, they fired upon troops and eventually got neutralized in a fire-fight,” the statement said.
“In so far as claims of the parents that Aijaz Maqbool Ganai went to the University to fill up the form is concerned. The same was verified and cross checked through the modern techniques including records of the telecom department. Contrary to the claims, the verified digital evidence revealed and corroborated that Aijaz and Ather had gone to Hyderpora and from there to the place of occurrence only.”
The statement said that similarly, Zubair had gone first to Pulwama, then Anantnag, then Shopian to Pulwama and finally came to place of occurrence.
“Background check also reveals that Aijaz and Ather Mushtaq, both OGWs variously provided logistic support to militants. Antecedents and verifications too show that both were radically inclined and had aided LeT (now so-called TRF) outfit militants,” the statement said.
It said that one of OGW presently under police custody has also corroborated Aijaz’s association with LeT militant Faisal Mustaq Baba who was killed in Meej (Pampore) encounter in June last year. Pertinently, Ather was a relative and OGW of HM top commander Rayees Kachroo who was killed in 2017.
“Nevertheless police is investigating into the case from all possible angles,” the statement added
