WAMIQ FAROOQ CASE :Small Causes Judge sends file back
‘I don’t want to depend on others for probe’
Srinagar, June 4: The Small Causes Judge assigned to conduct magisterial probe in the killing of a teenager Wamiq Farooq has sent the case back to Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM).
The Small Causes Judge, Ajay Kumar, has written to CJM that being a non Kashmiri knowing person he had sought the help of his ‘Naazir’ for recording the statement of witnesses, who generally speak in Kashmiri.
Kumar has written that on May 25, a witness Ghulam Muhammad Bhat, stated before him that he could only speak in Kashmiri. His statement was recorded by “Naazir” and at some places counsel of the complainant had to intervene.
Emphasizing that he doesn’t want to depend on others while conducting the probe, Kumar said, “It may not be proper for me to hold such enquiry in which I have to depend upon others.”
In view of the language bar and seriousness of allegations in the case, Kumar said, “The allegations are of very serious nature which involve the life, liberty and career of some persons. I deem it proper in the interest of justice to submit the file to your (CJM) good self for further orders.”
He however, said the index of the file be maintained by this office and be attached with this letter for record.
Pertinently, Wamiq Farooq had died on January 31, 2010 after he was hit by a tear smoke shell fired by police at Rajouri Kadal in old city.
His father Farooq Ahmad Wani had filed a complaint before the CJM Srinagar seeking directions to police to register an FIR against assistant sub-inspector Abdul Khaliq, and constable Muhammad Akram for offences under section 302 RPC.
