Greater Kashmir


Srinagar, Mar 20: A Court here on Wednesday directed the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing death of Wamiq Farooq to file the latest status report in the case before the next date of hearing on April 25.
 Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar, Rajeev Gupta directed the SIT to file the report in keeping with the directions passed by the court on January 22, 2013.
 The court granted further time to the SIT after the prosecuting officer representing the state solicited for it.
 Earlier the Special Investigation Team (SIT) had filed the latest status report in the court stating it would file the final report of the investigation shortly.
 The court had on November 1 last year directed the SIT to expedite its investigation into the circumstances of death of Wamiq Farooq.  The SIT had informed the court that five independent witnesses were examined by it saying their statements were recorded in writing as well as audio visually.
 The SIT had however said that the demonstration for ascertaining the possibility of injury as seen on the deceased could not be done due to some technical difficulties and said the same will be carried out after necessary technical aid would be made available with the SIT.
