NIA denies detaining Awantipora teacher who died in police custody

Srinagar, Mar 19 :  Amid outrage over the death of an Awantipora resident in police custody, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday said the deceased was not examined by the probe agency.

“NIA emphatically denies reports linking NIA with Rizwan Ahmed resident of Awantipora,” the probe agency said, in a statement, issued on Tuesday.“He was neither called for questioning nor was he examined at any other location in connection with cases being investigated by NIA.”

Rizwan Assad Pandith (28) died in the custody at CARGO camp in Srinagar last night, triggering widespread condemnations and protests in Kashmir.

Separatists have called shutdown in Kashmir tomorrow to protests his custodial death.

Earlier, reports had said that Pandit was detained by the NIA few days ago.
