Police access CCTV footage, get leads in jeweller killing in Kashmir
1/8/2021 11:27:55 PM
EARLY TIMES REPORT

Srinagar, Jan 8: The Jammu and Kashmir Police are close to a breakthrough in the killing of a jeweller here in Kashmir on December 31, 2020 as they are understood to have got access to “clinching evidence” in the case.
Sources said the police have constituted a special investigation team to crack the case of the killing of 70-year-old Satpal Nischal and that the SIT have accessed the CCTV footage of the Sarai Bala and adjoining areas in the civil lines of Srinagar where the incident took place.
Sources said the CCTV footage have shown “some clinching evidence about the suspected terrorists”.
Sources said a team of experts have been scrutinizing the CCTV footage while the help of telecom service providers has also been sought.
Sources said the police are of the opinion that terror attack was carried out by at least two terrorists. “This is what the prima facie suggests,” said a police official on the condition of anonymity.
Sources said the police have instructions from the Union Home Ministry to crack that case at an earliest and that the cops were on the job working day and night.
On the last Thursday of 2020, Nischal who had been running a jewellery shop in Srinagar for at least 40 years, was gunned down weeks after he obtained a certificate under the new domicile law, which allows people who have lived in J&K for more than 15 years the right to purchase property.
The Resistance Front (TRF), a new terror group took responsibility for the attack in a statement. The terror group said the jeweller was part of a “settler project” and those who obtain the domicile certificate will be treated as “occupiers”. The BJP have already questioned the silence of the Abdullahs and the Muftis over the involvement of the TRF in the gruesome killing.
The police have told media that they are also probing the claims as made by the TRF with regard to the case.
Originally a resident of Punjab’s Gurdaspur, Nischal had purchased two properties after he acquired the domicile certificate, which was provided after the Centre revoked the Constitution’s Article 370 that gave a special status to J&K in August 2019, people familiar with the matter said.
But Nischal’s family has been saying that he was not killed over the issue of domicile certificate.
