GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Jan 3: Jammu and Kashmir government Thursday accepted the report submitted by the one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI) probing mysterious death of National Conference worker Syed Muhammad Yousaf in police custody.
Official sources said the report submitted by Justice HS Bedi was tabled before the state cabinet which met here under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
“The members were unanimous that the report is complete and there is nothing more required to be done in the case,” a cabinet minister told Greater Kashmir, adding, “The cabinet accepted the report wherein the Chief Minister was given clean chit in the death case, in toto.”
The retired Supreme Court judge had submitted his report to the government on December 22.
Haji Yousuf died in police custody after he was handed over to Crime Branch by Chief Minister on September 29 last year. He was accused to have taken money from two NC workers for getting them berths in the Legislative Council and the state council of ministers.
The report, while exonerating the Chief Minster, observed: “The deceased had been in fact arrested on Sep 29, 2011 from the CM's Camp Office by the (inspector general of police) IGP Raja Ajaz Ali...”
It observed: "The evidence also reveals that the deceased had received proper treatment while in the hospital...”
The panel absolved the doctor treating him or the IGP of any lapses.
IAS OFFICERS PROMOTED
The government, meanwhile, promoted 11 IAS officers and approved the re-appointment of two others.
In the Cabinet meeting, it was approved that Sundeep Kumar Nayak and Arun Kumar Mehta would be promoted to higher administrative grades as principal secretaries, an official spokesperson said.
The Cabinet also approved promotion of Manoj Kumar Diwedi, Dev Singh Jamwal and Farooq Ahmed Factoo to super time scale, after which they would be designated as commissioner secretaries to the government, he said.
Four other IAS officers—Sheikh Mushtaq Ahmed, Vineeta Gupta, Shahid Anayatullah and Tushar Kanti Sharma—have been promoted to the selection grade, the spokesman said.
The Cabinet also approved promotion of Shahid Iqbal and Sushma Chouhan to senior time scale, giving them designations of additional secretaries to the government, the spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet also approved re-employment of Inayatullah Khan, Director Forensic Science Laboratory (J&K) and Harnam Chand Bhagat, Deputy Director Forensic Science Laboratory (J&K) for a period of one year, he said.
