Bedi Commission gets 1-month extension



Srinagar, Dec 1: The one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI) led by Justice H S Bedi, probing the mysterious death of National Conference (NC) worker Sayeed Haji Yousuf, has been given extension of one month.
 Sources told Greater Kashmir that Justice H. S. Bedi, a former Supreme Court Judge, probing the mysterious death of Sayeed Yousuf had approached Law Department recently to give him extension of one month. Subsequently, the Law Department gave its assent to the requisition, they said.
 “The term of Commission has been extended till December 28  on request of Justice Bedi,” sources said.
 According to sources, Justice Bedi has concluded final hearing in the case, but extension has been sought  for finalization of the report.
 “The report is being,  presently , given final touches and it  is likely to submitted to State Government shortly,  within one or two weeks ,” an official in Law Department wishing anonymity said.
 Pertinently, the State government had on November 18 last year appointed Bedi as head of a one-man Commission to probe the death of 61-year-old Yousuf in “custody”.
 Yousuf was handed over to Crime Branch, by the 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 he was tortured to death, an autopsy showed that Haji Yousuf died of cardiac arrest.
 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.
