Army courts inaccessible for Pathribal fake encounter victims: APDP
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 10: Terming Supreme Court decision on Pathribal encounter case as ‘disheartening’ for the victims’ family, the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) Thursday said the family had no access to army courts so ‘they won’t be able to follow the case to get justice’.
“The court martial proceedings do not satisfy the right to remedy of the victims. And to seek sanction for an encounter which CBI investigation has established to be fake, is a major setback, for it means that the encounter is being viewed as an act done in the discharge of official duty,” chairman APDP, Parveena Ahanger said in a press statement.
She said both Centre and State had failed to deliver the justice to the victims in the case. “The present decision in the Pathribal fake encounter case has exposed the non-seriousness of the governments in fighting for justice delivered to the victims,” the statement said.
It said the association, through its counsel, had requested information, under Right to Information Act, from the Central Information Officer, DDG RTI & CPIO, IHQ of Ministry of Defense (Army) –DHQ, New Delhi, on the sanction for prosecution of public servant under Criminal Procedure Code and/or any other relevant laws.
“But to our utter dismay no information was provided on our request for detailed list pertaining to the state of JK, with the name of persons, rank, name of the force, date of application for sanction for prosecution and status of sanction of prosecution, granted, rejected and kept pending; and the copy of the orders granting / rejecting sanction for prosecution.
“It clearly indicates non-seriousness on part of the Government of India and the J&K Government towards the human rights violations in JK,” the chairman said.
