Court dismisses Parihar’s objections
Fake Encounter Case
Srinagar, Apr 24: A local court on Saturday rejected the objections by counsel of former SSP H S Parihar against the plea seeking transfer of records pertaining to dubbing of civilian Rehman Padroo as foreign militant from Chief Judicial Magistrate to Sessions Court in fake encounter case
The prosecution led by Director Prosecution Farooq Kathwari submitted before the court that FIR 133 be transferred to Sessions Court. The FIR 133 was lodged by police accusing the police officers of dubbing the civilian Abdul Rehman Padroo as foreign militant.
Counsel of the accused Ashok Parihar had objected to bringing the file related to FIR 133 for record before the Sessions court. He contended that the then SHO Ganderbal A M Reshi had given his closure report about FIR No 133, which is pending before CJM Srinagar.
Dismissing the objections raised by defence lawyer, the Principal and District Sessions Judge Gous-u-Nisa allowed the prosecution to prove the photocopy of the documents of the initial investigations, the original of which lies with the file pending before the court of CJM Srinagar.
She directed the prosecution to lead the evidence and documents required to be proved by its witness, Head Constable Nazir Ahmad under examination.
The prosecution had produced Nazir before the court and recorded his statement. Nazir as investigation officer had conducted the initial investigations of the encounter which took place in Waskoora-Ganderbal on December 8, 2006.
Kathwari submitted that the documents lying before the CJM were essential and related to the case and need to be proved by Nazir.
Court directed the state to produce further witnesses on next hearing on May 12.
Nazir had accompanied the then Duty Officer Shadipora Police Post to the spot where Padroo was killed allegedly by former senior superintendent of police Ganderbal H S Parihar and his men in fake encounter.
