Court reserves orders on transfer application
Fake encounter case
Srinagar, Mar 10: A local court here on Wednesday reserved orders on transferring the fake encounter case of a carpenter, Abdur Rehman Padroo, to another court.
The prosecution led by Farooq Kathwari submitted before the principal and district sessions judge that FIR no. 133 be transferred to sessions court. The FIR 133 was lodged against police officers for dubbing Padroo as a foreign militant.
However, counsel of the accused Ashok Parihar objected. He contended that the then Station House Officer Ganderbal A M Reshi had given his closure report about the said FIR, which is still pending before Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar.
Following the submissions made by counsels, the court reserved the orders till March 26 and 27.
The court also directed the doctors to present themselves before the court along with FSL report.
Pertinently, revelations about police killing innocents in fake encounters in 2006 had triggered Valley-wide protests forcing government to order an inquiry. Investigations had revealed that Padder was picked up from Batmaloo and killed in a stage managed encounter. He was later passed on as Pakistani militant. After uproar across the valley Padder’s body was exhumed and handed over to his legal heirs.
Police later arrested then SSP Parihar and his men and registered cases of abduction and murder against them.
