SRINAGAR, Feb 2: Syed Ali Shah Geelani, chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) today demanded reopening of the murder case of advocate Ghulam Mohi-u-Din Regoo.

In a statement on the 15 death anniversary of Regoo, Geelani demanded stern punishment to forces and Special Task Force personnel, involved in his killing.

He added that Regoo despite being a lawyer was highly dedicated and committed to the ongoing freedom struggle. Geelani said a joint team of 17 Jat, SOG and Papa Kashtwari arrested advocate Regoo on February 1, 1998 and killed him in custody. On February 3, his family members recovered his body from road side “which was cut by killers into pieces.”

Geelani in his statement alleged that army and police officers, involved in the killing were awarded and no action was taken against them.

He added that an ex-National Conference MLA shielded the killers. Geelani stated that the family of slain advocate filed a case in Supreme Court, but was dismissed with the remarks that in disturbed area such cases are not listed for fallow up or perusal.

Hurriyat (G) chairman while stressing for the perusal of the case said that in civilised societies in such cases legal institutions take suo moto action to provide justice and added that courts in Jammu and Kashmir are not free from intervention from administration and thus no action was taken and killers are roaming free.

Geelani stated that the case regarding the assassination of advocate Regoo has been listed at International Court of Justice, Geneva and the hearing is expected this year and stressed upon the concerned quarters to gear up for the perusal and follow up of the case.
