CJM to pronounce order today in prosecution application
WAMIQ FAROOQ CASE
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Oct 17: The Trial Court on Monday reserved the order in an application filed by the state in Wamiq Farooq case seeking further time to challenge earlier court orders in the Supreme Court.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar after hearing the parties to the case decided to pass the order on Tuesday.
Deputy Director Prosecution, Chief Prosecution Officer and Senior Prosecution Officer who appeared for the state today moved an application before the Court seeking reasonable and sufficient time to challenge the orders of the Chief judicial Magistrate Srinagar, Principal Sessions judge Srinagar and the High Court.
They informed the Court that the Law Department had recommended the prosecution to challenge the Trial Court orders and High Court order in the Supreme Court.
“I informed the Court that on Sep 26, 2011 that it (Court) has passed an order wherein it said that in case prosecution would not challenge the orders up to October 17, the Court would initiate proceedings as per the procedure established by law,” Counsel for the complainant, Ajaz Ahmad Dar told Greater Kashmir.
“I also pleaded that as per the procedure the court has to record the statements of the witnesses of the complainant and has to issue warrants or summons against the accused,” Dar said.
Following state’s move to challenge the orders passed by the Courts earlier in Wamiq Farooq case, the Trial Court on Sep 26 had granted three weeks’ time to the state to take action on its available remedy.
“It is reported that the state is contemplating to challenge the order passed in the matter by this Court and those passed by the higher forums and I feel it proper to allow some more time to the concerned to exercise any remedy available under law before the next date of hearing,” the Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar had observed in his order.
The Court, however, had observed, in case it is not done, the matter will be taken for further proceedings as per procedure prescribed by law.
