Prisoners taken to court in Srinagar

*Pathribal fake encounter: SC agrees to examine plea of victims’ kin*

*Srinagar August 20:2017*

The Supreme Court has said it would examine a plea filed by family members of five civilians killed in an alleged fake encounter in Pathribal area of south Kashmir in 2000, seeking CBI trial against the accused army personnel.

The matter reached the apex court after the Jammu and Kashmir High Court dismissed the plea of the family members last year. “Issue notice. Let the matter be listed for final disposal after six weeks,” a bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra, AM Khanwilkar and MM Shantanagoudar said.

Advocate Nitya Ramakrishnan appearing for Nazir Ahmad Dalal, maternal uncle of Zahoor Ahmad Dalal, one of the victims of the alleged fake encounter, said that the army has not conducted the court martial against the accused personnel. She said that Jammu and Kashmir High Court was wrong in summarily dismissing the plea.

Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh, appearing for the Centre, said he had filed the response to the plea. The bench said it was listing the matter for final disposal after six weeks and issued notice to the Centre, Army and CBI on the plea.

The apex court had on October 7, 2016, asked for the copy of the petition to be served to the Centre, so that its counsel could assist the court. The victim’s kin in their plea had sought resumption of trial before the CBI court after the army personnel were exonerated by the court of inquiry.
In 2012, the apex court had given an option of conducting the trial against the army men either through court martial or criminal court, after which the military had opted for the former alternative.
Dalal had filed the plea against the High Court’s April 27, 2016, order which summarily dismissed the families’ plea seeking criminal court proceedings before a CBI court for the alleged killing of five civilians on March 25, 2000. The CBI had in 2006 indicted five men of the Rashtriya Rifles (RR) for the killing of the five civilians, of whom three were dubbed as Pakistani terrorists responsible for the massacre of 36 Sikhs at Chittisinghpura area of Anantnag district. Two other civilians were allegedly claimed to be unknown terrorists.

The state government had ordered the CBI probe, which on the basis of DNA tests identified the bodies as of civilians. They were identified as Zahoor Ahmad Dalal, Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Mohammad Yousuf Malik, Jumma Khan and Jumma Khan.
The CBI found that the killed persons sustained about 98 percent burn injuries in addition to the bullet injuries, indicating use of excessive and unwarranted force.

“It is impossible for the killed persons to suffer such extensive burn injuries in a genuine encounter. The encounter was staged with a view to obliterate the identity of killed persons,” the plea filed by the families of the five civilians had said.

“The Army by resort to the special procedure under the Army Act has declared it to be a case of no evidence, which finding has been arrived at in a wholly opaque process and in the face of established record,” the plea said.

>>>    Five Army personnel convicted by a general court martial in the Machhil fake encounter case had a sigh of relief as a military court suspended their punishment of life imprisonment, Indi Today reported on Wednesday.

According to the report the armed forces tribunal also granted them bail in the case related to the death of three civilians in Kashmir Valley in 2010 where the accused were dismissed from service and given jail terms.

        Colonel Dinesh Pathania, Captain Upendra, Havildar Devender Kumar, Lance Naik Lakhmi, Lance Naik Arun Kumar from 4 Rajput Regiment and rifleman Abas Hussain of the Territorial Army were convicted in 2014 for human rights abuse.

       *“The suspension of punishment means that the troops would be out of jail while the court would continue to hear the case on the trial conducted by the force against them.”*

      There was a public outcry after photographs of those killed in the alleged encounter were released, as relatives and neighbours of the slain persons claimed that the three men were framed and killed in a stage-managed gunfight and they were not connected with militancy in any way.

SC Refuses to Re-open Cases of KP Killings

SC Refuses to Re-open Cases of KP Killings
“You (petitioner) sat over it for last 27 years. Now tell us from where the evidence will come.”
New Delhi—The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a plea seeking probe and prosecution of various persons, including JKLF Chairman Yasin Malik, for offences including murder of Kashmiri Pandits during the height of militancy in the Valley in 1989-90.
A bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said that almost 27 years have passed and it will be very difficult to gather evidence in cases of murder, arson and looting which had led to mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley.
“You (petitioner) sat over it for last 27 years. Now tell us from where the evidence will come,” the bench said.
Advocate Vikas Padora, appearing for an organisation ‘Roots of Kashmir’, said Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their abodes in the Valley and could not join the investigation and further submitted that the delay was there but neither the Centre nor the state government nor the judiciary took adequate note of it to do the needful.
The organisation has alleged that 215 FIRs had been lodged relating to the murder of over 700 Kashmiri Pandits and none of the cases have reached a logical conclusion. PTI

Shopian villagers scared to register complaints against army assaults

Shopian villagers scared to register complaints against army assaults
SHOPIAN: More than 15 villages in Shopian have suffered night raids, beatings and vandalism at the hands of army soldiers in recent weeks, but no villager has filed a complaint with the police because of distrust and fear of reprisals.

The attacks by army soldiers have been taking place ever since more than 4,000 troopers along with SOG of Jammu and Kashmir Police launched a major cordon and search operation in 17 villages in Shopian to hunt down the two dozen native militants believed to be active here.

When the army was returning from the operation, a civilian driver was killed when militants attacked the vehicle the soldiers had taken from the Shopian taxi stand. The family of the killed driver has said that the army had used him as a human shield.

The operation faced huge resistance from villagers, with clashes reported from Chitragam, Sugan, Turkwangam, Maldair and some other villages. At Turkwangam and Maldair, the troops allegedly smashed 200 cars, vandalised 150 houses and injured dozens of protesters.

In Maldair, the troops allegedly barged into a residential house where they beat every single inmate, including the eight-month pregnant daughter, wife and another teenaged daughter of Ghulam Muhammad Mir.
“About 30 troopers barged into our house on May 4 and beat us for half an hour. They suffocated my younger daughter (15) with her head scarf, beat my pregnant daughter Rafiya (24) with gun butts and even thrashed my wife (55),” said Ghulam of the assault.

Abdul Ahad Mir, Numberdar of Turkwangam village, told Kashmir Reader that the villagers have not made any complaint in any police station or human rights organisation. “Once a person came here and told us that he is from the police.

He asked about the damage done by army soldiers and the names of persons who were beaten by them. But we didn’t tell him anything as we feared that the named persons may be arrested,” Mir said.

Later, several other villages were attacked by army troopers in night raids. They injured dozens of people and damaged property worth lakhs. The villages include Turkwangam, which was assaulted on two consecutive nights. The assaults left 25 persons injured, including young women who suffered fractures in their legs and arms. Two days later, the soldiers again assaulted the villagers, and damaged several vehicles.

The villages that were assaulted and vandalised by army troopers in the past two months include Turkwangam, Maldair, Chitragam, Kannipora, Nadpora, Wathoo, Brathipora, Sando-Shirmal, Heff, Vehil, Saidpora, Ramnagri, Shamsipora, Chakoora, and Kundalan. Villagers from Turkwangam and Kundlan have accused the army soldiers of looting their shops as well.

Property in Vehil village was damaged soon after some boys burst firecrackers to celebrate the Pakistan cricket team’s win over England in the Champion’s Trophy, which Pakistan went on to win with a huge 183-run win over India.

Gulam Muhammad Mir, Numberdar of Vehil village, said that there is so much fear in the villagers that complaining against the army men is out of the question. “How can we complain to the police? The police and army are brothers-in-arms. They would not listen to us as their job is to beat civilians and create terror among people,” he said.

Villagers of Kundalan, which falls in Nagisharan area where a new army garrison was established on June 20, said that they were forced to chant anti-Pak and pro-India slogans by the army men. When they refused to say the slogans, the soldiers beat up 20 persons in the village.

An elderly person from the village said that army soldiers were “beating people, looting and vandalising property without reason”. “They will get nothing but more hate from the public,” he said.

Recently two new army garrisons were set up in Shopian, one at Nagisharan village on June 20 and the second at Dobipora village on July 18.

Srinagar-based army spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia has said

Police, Army busts HM Module; 02 Militants, 02 OGWs Arrested: Claims Police


Police and Army has busted an HM module after it arrested two militants in Handwara and two OGWs in Awantipora.
On a specific information regarding movement of militants, a joint Naka of Handwara police and 21-RR was laid at Chogal, Handwara during which two persons identified as Mehrajudin son of Gulzar Ahmad Bhat and Obaid Shafi Malla son Mohammad Shafi both residents of Awantipora were caught while moving in suspicious circumstances.

Forces ‘Beat Up’ Militant’s Family In Kulgam Village;

Forces ‘Beat Up’ Militant’s Family In Kulgam Village;
They will Face Legal Action for Claiming Army Soldiers Beat them: Police


ANANTNAG: In the second such incident in less than a week, army soldiers allegedly beat up family members of a Lashkar-e-Toiba militant and ransacked their household in a night raid in Sopat village in Kulgam on Sunday evening.
Abrar Ahmad, the militant’s brother who is a cancer patient, has suffered injury in his foot and bruises on his body from the beating by army soldiers.
Family members of the LeT militant, Shakoor Ahmad Dar, who is active for the past eight months, alleged that soon after the evening prayers, army soldiers arrived at their house. “They (soldiers) came early in the evening and took positions all around the house. They did not tell us anything till Taraweeh prayers were over. The army men forced their entry into the house and abused and thrashed us,” Shakoor’s brother and mother said.
Abrar Ahmad said that army soldiers had been harassing the family but this was the first time they came inside the house.
“Since my brother left to join militancy, they (army men) would come and summon us to the camp. But they never did what they did today. They came rushing into the house and started beating and ransacking everything that came their way,” Abrar said.
He said he told the army men that he was a cancer patient but they said he was lying. “They kept on beating me, accusing me of lying. They even told me that I was lying about being a cancer patient,” Abrar said.
The mother of the LeT militant said that the army men threw away everything, including utensils, bedding, crops and food.
“If my son has joined militancy, let them deal with him as they can. But I can’t understand what me, my husband and my other children have done to them. If the chief minister has said that the families of militants will not be harassed, then when are they doing this,” she told reporters.
In the morning as the news about the beating of the family members spread, scores of locals visited the family to express their sympathy. The locals also raised pro-Azadi and anti-India slogans.
A few days ago, men from the police special operations group (SOG) had allegedly raided the house of a slain LeT commander, Majid Zargar , in Quimoo area of the district. His brother suffered multiple injuries from the beating he received at the hands of the policemen.
SSP Kulgam Sreedhar Patil told Sources that the family should come forward and lodge an FIR. “We have conducted no raid whatsoever in the area. If the family says any such thing has happened, they should come forward and lodge an FIR. I suspect some foul play,” Patil said.
“I have confirmed from the Army. They did not carry any operation as well, neither did the police,” Patil said.
He added that the family is trying to defame forces, “despite the fact that we did not carry out any operation, legal action is going to be taken against them”.
Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said that he has no knowledge about the incident.
“You message me the details of the incident and I will get it confirmed from the local army unit,” he said.
