Seniors scuttling probe in militant-cop nexus case

 Some senior police officers in Jammu and Kashmir are trying to hush up recently unearthed militant-cop nexus case as the policemen arrested in the case are believed to be close to them.

Sources said two junior IPS officers, part of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) investigating the case, are facing difficulties as the senior officers are reportedly creating hurdles in the smooth conduct of investigations.

Police had last week arrested Abdul Rashid Shigan, personal security officer (PSO) of a senior superintendent of police, former divisional commander of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM), Manzoor Ahmad Chiloo and another policeman for carrying assassination bid on state’s law and parliamentary affairs minister, Ali Mohammad Sagar, and 12 other terror attacks in Srinagar since last year.

“The two junior IPS officers  are not happy with the interference of the senior officers who have reportedly kept informers behind them.” sources said.
