Court defers Machil fake encounter case till Dec 2
Srinagar, Nov 29: The principal district and sessions judge Baramulla has deferred the infamous Machil fake encounter case till December 2. Three civilians of Nadihal Baramulla were killed allegedly by army claiming them to be militants.
Earlier, to pronounce the judgment the court had reserved its order till November 29. However, it was deferred today till December 2.
Pertinently, on July 27, the Government of India had filed a revision petition in the court of principal district and sessions judge Baramulla seeking revision of the order passed by the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Sopore in the same matter.
On July 15, the CJM Sopore, Kounser Qureshi had rejected the court martial option for the accused army personnel including a Colonel and two Majors.
“The trial of the case in relation to the said accused persons too is necessary to be conducted by a civil court. In view of the conjoined reading of the army act 1950, Section 549 Cr.P.C and Court Martial adjustment of jurisdictional rules, the case falls beyond the option of its trial by court martial,” Qureshi’s order issued on July 15 said.
Three youth–Reyaz Ahmad, Muhammad Shafi and Shahzad Ahmad were allegedly lured by a former Special Police Officer Bashir Ahmad Lone and his accomplices to Machil on the pretext of getting them high-paying jobs and later handed over to army for Rs 50,000 each.
