HC adjourns hearing
MACHIL FAKE ENCOUNTER
GK LEGAL CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Dec 9: The High Court on Friday adjourned the Machil fake encounter case due to paucity of time and directed that the case be posted for next hearing on December 14.
The Court on its previous hearing last week had granted a week’s time to the state government to file objections in the petition filed by army seeking the quashment of the trial court orders in Machil fake encounter case.
Senior Counsel, Mian Abdul Qayoom representing the families of the civilian victims had submitted before the court on the previous hearing that the state had a dilatory approach to file objections in the case involving the killing of the civilians allegedly by the army in a staged encounter.
The army had filed a petition on December 30, 2010 in the High Court getting stayed the proceedings of the civil court. The State was asked to file the objections to the petition.
The army had filed a petition after the sessions court Baramulla upheld the order of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Sopore wherein it said that that the civil court has the jurisdiction to proceed against the army men accused of the killings.
The CJM had directed the army to produce the accused before the court.
Following the order passed by the CJM court Sopore, the Army challenged it before the sessions court Baramulla which upheld the trial court order.
