‘Bedi Commission to submit report in 2 days’
SAYEED YOUSUF CASE
Srinagar, Dec 18: The one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI) headed by former Supreme Court judge Justice HS Bedi is likely to submit its report on the death of National Conference worker Sayeed Muhammad Yosouf to the State Government.
Highly placed sources told Greater Kashmir that Bedi will be arriving in the winter capital to submit the report to the State Government after concluding his findings and observations in the case.
Justice Bedi, who earlier conducted all sittings of the case in Srinagar, would be in Jammu for the first time since he was assigned with the task to probe the case. The CoI’s term is expiring on December 28.
“He (Justice Bedi) is likely to submit the report within a day or two,” Law Minister Ali Muhammad Sagar told Greater Kashmir.
After conducting proceedings in the case for more than a year now, Bedi had concluded the hearings on November 7. He had sought extension of one month for “drawing the conclusions.”
Yousuf was handed over to Crime Branch by Chief Minister on September 29 last year after he allegedly admitted that he had taken money from two National Conference workers for getting them berths in the Legislative Council and the state council of ministers. He died a mysteriously in custody of Crime Branch while Yousuf’s family alleged that he was tortured to death.
The Commission was asked to complete its probe within six weeks but due to 'unavoidable circumstances', including pendency of a petition relating to the matter before the Supreme Court and adverse weather conditions, the state government granted it extension from time to time.
