Wife of policeman killed in Kashmir hospital attack blames police

Abu Hanzula alias Naveed (left) was in J&K Police's captivity since 2014.

The wife of one of the policemen, who were killed in a militant attack in a hospital in Srinagar, has accused the Jammu and Kashmir police of disarming him while he was on duty.

The incident happened at Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital when Naveed was transported from Rainawari central jail along with five other prisoners.

Vehicles moving in the city were being searched to trace the escaped LeT terrorist.

The terrorist, identified as Naveed Jati alias Abu Hanzullah, a Pakistan national, was brought to the hospital for a medical check-up after he had complained of abdominal pain in jail, Srinagar SSP Imtiyaz Ismail Parray said. "Ahmad was injured and he died of his wounds later in the day", said the official. "Other five are in custody". He was prosecuted in several courts of the state including two in Jammu.

A red alert warning has been sounded in Srinagar. Babar Ahmad succumbed to his injuries a few hours later.

He said they had inputs of Pakistani prisoners "planning attacks and conspiracy" from the jail and that is why police proposed segregating the Pakistani prisoners and moving them to the Jammu jail where they could be "controlled better". "It was a well planned attack", the official said adding militants had prior information about movement of prisoners.

Police sources said that during questioning Jatt had confessed that he knew Mumbai attacker Ajmal Kasab and had met him in a training camp in Pakistan. The attack began when a police escort of 24 officers and six detainees, including Jat, were entering the hospital's main gate.

Director General of Police (DGP), Prisons, has ordered an internal probe to look into any lapses and the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) has been appointed the inquiry officer.

Meanwhile, wreath laying ceremony of Head-Constable Mushtaq Ahmad resident of Dildar Karnah and Constable Babar Ahmad Khan resident of Shangus Achabal was held at PCR Srinagar.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Muft and opposition leader Omar Abdullah said they were grieved by the killing of the two policemen. The CM also termed it as an act of cowardice.
