District Magistrates Srinagar Shahid Iqbal today said that they have started the proceedings into the case of custodial death of Awantipora teacher under the magisterial probe and that the inquiry will be conducted by the Additional Commissioner Srinagar, who has already visited the spot of incident.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Iqbal said that by evening they will issue a statement on the outcome of the magisterial probe taken up into the death of Rizwan Ahmed Pandit, 28, of Awantipora. “We will complete the probe soon and submit the report to the government,” Iqbal said. Earlier, police had said that Rizwan died in police custody after he was picked up by them in connection with a militancy related case.

It is to mention here that a private school teacher died on Tuesday allegedly in the custody of Special Operations Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police in Srinagar.
