Lakhvinder’s bail plea: Court adjourns case for 6 days
ZAHID FAROOQ’S KILLING
Srinagar, Mar 12: A local court has adjourned for six days the case in which the Border Security Force constable, Lakhvinder Kumar, accused of being involved in the killing of Nishat teenager, Zahid Farooq, had applied for regular bail.
In the court of Additional Sessions Judge Abdul Rashid Lone, advocate Khursheed Ahmad appeared on behalf of counsel Manish Kohli for accused Lakhvinder and sought adjournment of the case for filing of power of attorney on behalf of the accused.
Contesting the request, the Public prosecutor Abdul Aziz Teli said bail application should be rejected as counsel for accused after repeated directions had not made his appearance in the court nor he had filed power of attorney.
After hearing the submissions, the court gave final opportunity to counsel for accused to file the POA on next date of hearing. “Counsel shall appear and file power of attorney on next hearing on March 17, otherwise appropriate orders will be passed in the bail application,” the court said.
Pertinently, the BSF had handed over Constable Lakhvinder Kumar to Jammu and Kashmir Police for his alleged involvement in killing of a 16-year old boy on February 5 on city outskirts.
Kumar, according to police, had confessed during questioning that commandant R K Birdi had “forced him” to open fire following which BSF placed commandant under suspension. Kumar is presently under judicial custody in central Jail Srinagar.
