CJM asks Police to produce case diary
Islamabad (Anantnag) Nov 3: The Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) on Wednesday directed police team, probing the killing of two youth shot dead allegedly by forces on September 18 this year, to produce the case diary before the court on November, 6.
The matter came up for hearing before the CJM after police submitted its preliminary report into the killing of two youth, Noor-ul-Amin Dagga and Bilal Ahmad Najar.
The prosecution in its argument held that the duo was killed in the forces firing near Delhi Darbar Restaurant outside the entry point of the General Bus stand after they tried to damage the public property and also tried to set ablaze a petrol pump. “They resorted to stone pelting on the paramilitary CRPF men who in turn were forced to open fire in self- defense,” the prosecution claimed.
It stated that a case FIR No 355/ 2010, under section, 148,149,336, 427, 307, 188 RPC and 3 and 4 Public Property Prevention of Damages Act, 1985 against the protesters already stands registered. However, it said that complying with the court directions the level of investigation had been raised and a high level team had been constituted to probe into the incident.
Arguing the case on behalf of the complainant, the president of Islamabad Bar Association, Fayaz Ahmad Saudagar and his associate counsels, contested the police claim that the two youth were killed near Delhi Darbar Restaurant and instead maintained that the duo was killed without any provocation near Ahlidatith Masjid at Khanabal a few kilometers away from the Restaurant.
The defence argued that the two youth Noorul-Amin Dagga, 28, of Naibasti, Islamabad and Bilal Ahmad Najar, 28, were not a part of the protests and were about to join the funeral prayers of Maroof Nath, whose body was recovered early in the morning from Jehlum, in a public park at Khanabal.
They prayed that a separate FIR should be registered into the firing incident at Khanabal . “Police have not complied with the court directions under section 156 (clause 3) CRPC, to register a separate FIR into the killing of two youth. The Bar Association Islamabad was not satisfied with the police report and demanded that the fresh FIR be lodged into the incident,” the defence added.
