JAMMU: In the much publicized cases of Kishtwar militancy, 3rd Additional Sessions Judge Subash C Gupta today took serious note of the functioning of police for not filing report despite repeated orders by the Court and directed IGP Jammu Range to conduct an inquiry in the matter as ordered herein above and submit the detailed report in this regard. Simultaneously, the Court directed to submit the police report and CD file in the present matter on next date of hearing.
It is worthwhile to mention here that Court had already rejected two bail applications.
Today when the other two bail applications filed by Riyaz Ahmed, S/O Abdul Qayoom, R/O Sarkoot, Kishtwar and Devi Dass, S/O Hari Dass, R/O Lower Janakpur, Tehsil Dashin, District Kishtwar was taken up, the Court observed that APP of the Court has shown his inability to file the police report. According to him, he has flashed many messages and made phone calls to the concerned police for submitting the police report. These applications appear to have filed by applicant/ accused on 31-12-2019 and 08.01.2020. Thereafter, five times, it has been adjourned as per the request of the prosecution for submitting the police report. However, it is sorry state of affairs and not known as to why the police report has not been submitted for the last about one month.
The Court further observed that today also prayer is made for adjournment for submitting the police report by the APP. Last and final opportunity is given with a condition that in case of failure, appropriate order under law will be passed in the matter. However, it is very much imperative to have a detail inquiry in the matter as to why the police report is not being submitted by the concerned police. Accordingly, it is ordered. Copy of this order is forwarded to IGP, Jammu Range for conducting an inquiry in the matter as ordered herein above and submitted the detailed report in this regard. Simultaneously, he is directed to submit the police report and CD file in the present matter on next date of hearing.
