The government on Wednesday ordered the transfer of additional deputy commissioner Ganderbal, Syed Shahnawaz Bukhari. The officer was conducting magisterial inquiry into the killing of local youth Gowhar Ahmed Rather, shot dead by police in Kangan on April 2.

After massive protests against the killing, the district magistrate Ganderbal had ordered magisterial inquiry into the killing and appointed ADC Ganderbal as inquiry officer.

Official sources told Greater Kashmir that the probe is yet to be completed.

Ironically, the police had fired on the people protesting against Gowhar’s killing on April 3, killing another local youth.

As per an order, Bukhari has been transferred and posted as programme officer ICDS Srinagar.

Muhammad Yousuf Mir, programme officer ICDS Srinagar, has been posted as new additional deputy commissioner Ganderbal.
