17 CIVILIAN KILLINGS
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Srinagar, Dec 1: The judicial Commission probing 17 civilian killings during the June-July unrest in Valley has sought a two-month extension as it has not been able to complete the probe within the stipulated time.
The two member Commission headed by Justice (Retd) Bashir-ud-Din Ahmad has written a letter to the government to extend its term for completing the probe, official sources said today.
Sources said the Commission, which also comprises Justice (Retd) Y P Nargotra, has sought extension as “the enquiry is not likely to be completed within the stipulated time”.
“The Commission is presently recording the evidence produced by the government which shall be followed by recording of facts from the other side,” it said in the letter to state Law Department last week.
This is the second extension sought by the Commission as its term was extended in October by one month.
The Commission, appointed by the government on July 27 following an All Party Meeting convened by Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, was initially given three months to complete the probe. Later one-month extension was granted to it on October 28, they said.
