DySP lynching case: Court directs police to provide fresh charge sheet copies to accused

A local court here Wednesday directed authorities to provide fresh copy of charge sheet to defense counsel in DySP Muhammad Ayub Pandit lynching case after the counsel pleaded that copies provided to him were not legible.

Deputy superintendent of police Muhammad Ayub Pandit was lynched at Nowhatta in Downtown Srinagar on June 22 this year.

Principal and district sessions judge Srinagar Rashid Ali Dar issued the directions after defense counsel NA Ronga and associates pleaded that some of the papers in the charge sheet were not legible.

“To prepare defense, every paper must be legible. So I pleaded before the court that those papers which are not legible may be provided afresh,” Advocate Ronga told Greater Kashmir.

He informed the court about the page numbers which were not legible and court directed prosecution to provide those papers afresh.

The court later transferred the case to fourth additional principal and district sessions court for trial.

All the 17 accused who are presently in judicial custody were produced before the court.

Advocate Ronga said that bail application is also pending before the court. On October 4, the 17 accused had filed a joint bail application through their counsels Advocates NA Ronga and BA Khan before the CJM court Srinagar.

On October 6, police had filed charge sheet in the court of chief judicial magistrate Srinagar against 17 persons. It also separately filed challan against four juveniles accused in the case.

The CJM Srinagar committed the challan of 17 accused to the court of principal district and sessions judge Srinagar for trial and today principal district and sessions judge Srinagar transferred case to fourth additional principal district and sessions court.
