Bedi Commission to submit report today

200-Page Document To Be Handed Over To Law Secretary


Srinagar, Nov 21: The one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI) comprising Justice HS Bedi, probing the high-profile case of the death of National Conference (NC) worker Syed Muhammad Yousuf, will submit its report to Jammu and Kashmir Government on Saturday.
 Authoritative sources told Greater Kashmir that Justice Bedi, who arrived in winter capital on Thursday will submit the final report to State Government tomorrow at around 10 am.
 According to sources, Bedi has decided to handover the report to Law Secretary Ghulam Hassan Tantary at State Guest House Jammu, where the former is staying in Room No. 503 for the past three days.
 “The decision of submitting the report has been already conveyed to the State Government and after submitting the report Bedi will fly back to New Delhi,” they said, adding that the report is spanned over nearly 200 pages.
 The decision to choose the venue has been decided in the wake of civil secretariat being closed tomorrow, sources added.
 Repeated attempts to contact Justice Bedi and State Government officials proved futile as the former had gone to Katra while none of the officials agreed to comment on the matter saying that it is beyond their domain.
 Justice Bedi, who earlier conducted all sittings of the case in Srinagar, had concluded the hearings on November 7. Later, he had sought extension of one month for “drawing the conclusions.”
 Haji 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 NC workers for getting them berths in the Legislative Council and the state council of ministers. He died 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.
