SIT rules out terror angle in J-K prisons chief murder last Oct, finds accused was driven by ‘deep grudges’
Jammu, Jan 15 (PTI) Ruling out terror angle in the sensational murder of H K Lohia, a former director general of Jammu and Kashmir prisons, in October last year, the police investigation in the case has found accused Yassir Ahmad was driven by “deep grudges” against high-ranking officials.
The Jammu and Kashmir crime branch Special Investigation Team that carried out a detailed probe, including a Narco analysis on Ahmed, concluded he was disturbed over self-assumed noncompliance of promises of a government job in lieu of services he rendered as a domestic help to Lohia, an official said.
The sensational murder of Lohia, a 1992-batch IPS officer, had raised many eyebrows especially after a little-known terror group, Peoples Anti-Fascist Front (PAFF), claimed responsibility. It was dismissed by police as mere tactics of these outfits to own “everything shamelessly”.
