HC ORDERS JUDICIAL PROBE
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Dec 21: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has ordered a judicial enquiry into the disappearance of a man who was allegedly picked up by Army from Dalgate in 2000.
Family of Mukhtar Ahmad Beigh of Sonawar has filed a petition seeking directions for the judicial probe into enforced disappearance of Beigh.
A bench of Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar directed Principal District and Sessions Judge Srinagar to conduct the probe and submit report within two months after counsel for the petitioner, Mir Shafaqat Hussain pleaded for the probe.
Earlier the court had ordered a similar probe into the disappearance of Firdous Ahmad Ahmad. Both Beigh and Bawan disappeared on September 25, 2000.
Beigh’s family is seeking directions to the respondents including Defence Secretary of India, General Officer Commanding of 15 corps Indian Army APO 56 and state government to produce corpse of Beigh before the court.
In its report submitted in the High Court in April this year, the state government stated that Mukhtar Ahmad Beigh son of Ghulam Nabi of Sonawar was lifted by unknown gun wielding persons in uniform from his residence.
According to the report Police registered an FIR 143/2000 under section 365 of RPC and investigation was set in motion.
The report said: “During the investigation, it was ascertained that both Bawan and Beigh were picked up by unknown personnel in uniform and their whereabouts are not known.”
The case was closed as untraced in 2005.
