Police Bill: Govt extends feedback time by 1 month


Srinagar, Apr 3: The Jammu and Kashmir Government Wednesday further extended the date on seeking the feedback over the controversial Jammu and Kashmir Police Bill -2013 by one month.
“The date for filing suggestions/comments on the draft Jammu and Kashmir Police Bill-2013 posted by the Home Department on the website www.jkhome.nic.in is hereby extended for a period of one month i.e. up to 30th April 2013,” a notice No Home/PB-Ill/20/2013 dated: 03 -04-2013 issued by Additional Secretary of  the State Home Department  reads.
Pertinently, the Bill was put in public domain when Kashmir was under curfew following Afzal Guru's hanging on February 9, with a notification inviting suggestions within next two weeks. But in wake of widespread criticism from different shades of opinion  over “limiting” the feedback time, the Home Department vide Order No PB-III/20-2013 dated 27-02-2013 extended time-period for one month beyond 1 March 2013. It has now been further extended.
