SRINAGAR: The families of Hyderpora victims are pinning hopes on a magisterial probe even though the additional deputy commissioner (ADC) probing the incident is yet to submit his final report.

The family of Hyderpora victims said that till now they don’t have any information about the submission of the report officially but are waiting for the report with hopes of justice.

“As LG Manoj Sinha has given us high hopes that the culprit will be booked and assured us that there is no place for injustice, we are waiting with very high hopes,” the family said.

Notably, Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha in a tweet after the encounter said, “A magisterial inquiry by an officer of ADM rank has been ordered in the Hyderpora encounter. The government will take suitable action as soon as the report is submitted in a time-bound manner. JK admin reiterates the commitment of protecting lives of innocent civilians it will ensure there is no injustice (sic).”
