Family of Manan contradicts UP police claims
Strike in Dalgate against mysterious death
SRINAGAR, Sep 6: A strike was observed today at Dalgate in protest against the mysterious death of a Kashmiri student Abdul Manan Wani at Ghaziabad in UP. Protest demonstrations were also held.

The family and the people alleged that Manan was murdered. But UP claims that he committed sucide. Body of Manan was brought here this afternoon. It was later laid to rest at his ancestral graveyard at Dalgate. Large number of people joined his funeral and held demonstrations.

Family of Manan , the engineering student, contradicted the police claims that he had committed suicide.

Prof Sharif Wani uncle of the deceased said, “There are some missing links in police claims. His body was not hanging from the ceiling fan but tied to exhaust vent opening above the door

(roshan daan) with a bed sheet and not by a rope, as was claimed by the police and reported by a section of media.”

“The door of his room was not locked, it was wide open. All this leads us to think that this mysterious death is not a natural death at all but a cold blooded murder,” he said.

Manan was pursuing Engineering course at SRM College Ghaziabad and was living in a private building.

Prof Wani said that Mannan had left his home town Srinagar on August 10 to continue with his degree classes in Ghaziabad and was found dead on September 4. “That means he had returned from Kashmir 25 days ago and not three days ago as claimed by the police and reported

in media. He was found dead by the landlord of the building he lived in, and not by college authorities,” he said.

“The landlord’s son informed us about his death on September 4 at 10:35 PM. Thus, it is beyond fact that some Navneet came to the deceased’s room at 1 AM and found him hanging. After the call, we spoke to the police investigating officer, Udhay Singh present at the site on the landlord’s son’s cell phone and he confirmed that Mannan is dead,” he added.

Prof Wani said that when the family members went there (Ghaziabad), they were not shown the body neither before post mortem nor after that. “Police did not show us FSL reports and termed it a suicide which is incorrect and pathetic. They want to close the case as portraying it as suicide,” he claimed.

Inspector General Police (IGP) Kashmir Abdul Gani Mir said they are in touch with UP police and are ensuring they do the proper investigation. “Prima-facie they (UP police) have told us it is a suicide but further investigations are going on,” he said.
