Shopian truth nailed

published on February 14, 2010

The Shopian double rape-cum-murder case, that singed the Kashmir Valley for months last year, was based on doctored medical reports. While a CBI probe has already established this, evidence has come to light that shows the post-mortem reports of the victims were fudged at the behest of Majlis Mashawarat, an organisation that was at the forefront of the agitation against security forces.

Taped conversations between a Majlis representative and two doctors have emerged that nail the lie of the Shopian rapes. The Jammu and Kashmir Police tapped the phones of the Majlis officials and the doctors. Government doctors at the Kashmir hospitals who conducted the post-mortems on Asiya Jan and her sister-in-law Nilofer Jan, the two women security personnel were accused of raping and killing, knew they were not raped.

Yet, post-mortem reports were made to doctor the truth. Shopian and entire Kashmir burnt for nearly two months. The Omar Abdullah government faced its first serious crisis as the Valley erupted, accusing it of trying to shield the guilty.

But taped conversation between a doctor who conducted the post-mortem and Mohammad Shafi Khan, the vice-president of the Majlis – which was representing the families of the victims – show a deliberate attempt was made to cook up false reports.
