2 terrorists in Shopian are the subject of proclamation procedures

Srinagar, Oct. 7: Police in Shopian, along with the Revenue Department, have started proclamation proceedings against two active terrorists under Section 82 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

Abid Ramzan Sheikh, son of Muhammad Ramzan Sheikh of Chotipora, Shopian, and Bilal Ahmad Bhat, son of Ghulam Rasool Bhat of Cheki Cholen, have been named as the two.


They are allegedly involved in numerous terrorist acts, according to the police, and have been charged with crimes in Case FIR Nos. 24/2018 of Police Station Zainapora, 94/2017, 266/2021, 05/2022, 40/2022, 214/2022, and 215/2022 of Police Station Shopian, 28/2018 of Police Station Heerpora, 52/2018 of Police Station Shopian, 59/2019 of Police Station Heerpora, and 84/2021 of Police Station

When discussing the specifics with the media community, SSP Shopian Tanushree said that the Shopian Police were dedicated to maintaining the law and safeguarding the safety and security of citizens.

She said, “We are collaborating closely with other agencies to follow the law and prosecute such individuals.”

These legal actions have been started against the two active terrorists who are eluding capture since a non-bailable open warrant from September 6, 2023, was unable to be carried out against them.

The proclamation notice under Section 82 of the Criminal Procedure Code issued by the Court of NIA has therefore been pasted and distributed at their residences and other notable places in their respective native villages, along with revenue officials, with the instructions that these wanted terrorists should surrender before the investigation officer or the court of law; otherwise, further proceedings will be initiated accordingly against them.

DySP Headquarters Shopian, with assistance from SHO Police Station Shopian, SHO Police Station Heerpora, and DO Police Post Hermain, led the police party in Shopian.

The Executive Magistrate, Shopian, Hermain, and Sarpanch of the different villages, as well as Lumerdar and Chokidar, were present throughout the exercise.

Additionally, the Shopian Police employed drumming to alert the populace of their continuous attempts to capture the aforementioned active terrorists, who are needed in connection with the investigation and cases involving terrorism.

In addition to these initiatives, the Shopian Police are actively involving the neighbourhood to guarantee an area free from terrorism.

The implementation of community policing projects and increased security measures are other recent developments.

As part of a comprehensive strategy to combat terrorism and uphold the rule of law, proclamation procedures and property attachment have been initiated. We urge the public to exercise caution and submit any information that might help identify these active terrorists.
