Islamabad triple murder case committed to Sessions Court
Islamabad (Anantnag), Nov 29: The Judicial Magistrate today committed the proceedings of the case of the cold blooded murder of three teenagers in Anchidora area of this South Kashmir town for hearing to the Session’s court after the prosecution filed its objections sought by the counsel of the accused constable.
The counsel of the constable had submitted before the court that the accused has been implicated on the strength of magisterial enquiry and that the accused was not provided the copy of the enquiry report by the administration despite applying for the same under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
However, the State contended the charges and termed them as frivolous. The prosecution in its objections filed before Judicial Magistrate, Muhammad Ashraf, stated that not even remotely there is a whisper that the charge sheet filed against the accused in the court is related to the magisterial enquiry report and that the case is entirely based on the criminal proceedings and that the findings are not even in the possession of the investigating agency. It also said that the prosecution has nothing to do with the magisterial enquiry report sought by the accused under the provisions of RTI and that the aggrieved can approach the appellate authority.
Furthermore, the prosecution also pleaded that out of the six persons who were held accused in various baliable offences relating to stone pelting during the occurrence of the incident, only one has appeared before the court. The judicial magistrate later declared all five of them as absconding and issued general warrant against them.
The case was committed then to Sessions court and was listed for hearing on December 9. Earlier, the accused constable was produced in the court by the police.
Three teenagers- Shujat-ul-Islam, 17, Ishtiyaq Ahmad Khanday, 15, and Imtiyaz Ahmad Itoo, 15, were murdered in cold blood in Anchidora area of the town on June 29 allegedly by police after the latter chased away some protesting youth.
The government ordered magisterial enquiry into the incident which indicted five police persons including two officials in the killings, where as the police initiated separate investigation into the incident through a special investigation team (SIT) and charge-sheeted one constable who is presently in custody. The government, during the recently Assembly session, also admitted that the three teenagers were killed in cold blood and asked the police investigating agency to consider the Magisterial Inquiry Report (MIR) conducted by then Assistant Commissioner Revenue (ACR).
