SRINAGAR: The Juvenile Justice Board, Srinagar has framed charges against one child in conflict with the law (name withheld) against whom a charge sheet was filed by the State Investigating Agency (SIA) on 23-06-2022 in a case pertaining to the killing of a Chattabal youth.

The CCL along with two militants of TRF Mehran Shalla of Jamallata Nawakadal Srinagar and Basit Rashid Dar of Redwani Payeen Kulgam were found involved by the investigating agency in the murder of one civilian Majid Ahmad Gojri of Chattabal Srinagar, who was killed inside Madina Complex Srinagar in broad daylight in October last year, a statement issued in this regard by police reads.

“The SIT headed by a Deputy Superintendent of Police worked out the case and apprehended the CCL. The murder of Majid Gojri had caused a furore on social media as Majid was a popular face in Downtown Srinagar.”

“Initially, there had been rumours that Majid had been killed by a rival gang; however, the investigation carried out by SIA has clearly indicted militants of TRF in the murder,” it added—(KNO)
