Apex Court fixes Dec 15 for hearing
Yousuf Death Row
New Delhi, Nov 21: In an interesting turn of events, the Supreme Court on Monday fixed the next hearing in the case related to the death of National Conference worker Syed Muhammad Yusuf on December 15, 2011. The case was earlier listed for today but had been surprisingly postponed to August 2012.
The new date of hearing was fixed after senior advocate and Panthers Party leader Prof Bhim Singh brought to the court’s notice that hearing had been suddenly postponed to next August despite having been listed for November 21, 2011, on the directions of the court. Interestingly, while preparing to appear before the court today, Prof Singh discovered that the date of hearing had been postponed to August 6, 2012.
As soon as he mentioned the matter before a Division Bench comprising Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice S S Nijjar in the morning, he was directed to appear at 2 o’clock so that an enquiry could be conducted into the issue.
Expressing surprise on the deletion of the matter slated to be heard today, Prof Singh informed the court that the notices had been served on all the five respondents on October 9, well within the stipulated time. But despite that the date of hearing had suddenly been postponed.
The respondents had been served notices both through the court channel and separately on Prof Singh’s initiative. “I informed the honourable court about the service of the notice following which I was asked to appear again after lunch,” Prof Singh said.
The five respondents include Union of India, J&K Chief Secretary, Home Secretary, DGP and Inspector General (Crime).
