‘Police petition not maintainable’
Wamiq Farooq case
Srinagar, Apr 9: While as local court deferred the hearing in the revision petition filed by police against CJM order into the killing of teenage boy Wamiq Farooq the complaint counsel Saturday said that the petition was not maintainable.
Advocate Aijaz Ahmad Dar, the complaint counsel said that the case came up for hearing before Principal District and Sessions Court Srinagar, Bansi Lal Bhat today.
“I insisted upon the honourable Judge that there is a law that revision petition is not maintainable. I be allowed to argue but the court deferred the hearing till April 13,” he said.
Advocate Aijaz said that the court has directed the concerned Public Prosecutor to argue the case “at any cost” otherwise court would take initiatives according to the law.
On last date of the hearing, the court had informed the public prosecutor that case shall be dismissed if he failed to argue the case. “The public prosecutor was given last chance today to argue the case,” advocate Aijaz said.
Earlier, he said, the Public Prosecutor requested the court that he cannot argue the case for he had forgotten the case file at home.
On March 10 last, police filed the criminal revision petition against Chief Judicial Magistrate orders for constituting Special Investigation Team to investigate five aspects of the case including examining the witnesses.
The police had challenged the orders on many grounds and prayed to allow the petition by setting aside the February 05 orders of the CJM Srinagar in the “interest of justice”
