D A RASHID
Srinagar, Dec 31: The High Court Monday granted four weeks to the state government to file compliance report on the directions it passed in its order of October 8, 2010 in the Public Interest Litigation by the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yaseen Mallik seeking judicial probe into the deaths during 2010 unrest in Kashmir.
A division bench of the High Court comprising Justice Virender Singh and Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar granted four weeks to the government after Senior Additional Advocate General A M Magray representing the State solicited for it. The court also granted four weeks to the Assistant Solicitor General S A Makroo to present two communications regarding payment of compensation to victim families of 2010 uprising.
The court asked Makroo to produce the document detailing up to which date the compensation was paid by the Central Home Ministry to the victim families.
The Court had earlier asked the state government to file an affidavit indicating the rationale of the Commission of Inquiry (CoI), probing the deaths during the 2010 uprising, behind bringing only 17 cases under the ambit of the probe.
The Court asked the Union and State Government to explain whether the policy decision taken on September 19, 2010 regarding ex-gratia relief to the legal heirs of the victims is confined only to the death of civilians that occurred till October 10, 2010 or for a later period as well.
Earlier in its supplementary affidavit the state government had said that as per the decision of Cabinet Committee on Security an ex-gratia relief of Rs 5 lakh to a relative of deceased was to be granted.
