IOK HC issues notice to CBI on closing sailan massacre probe

Srinagar, November 19, 2017 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the High Court has issued a notice to India’s Central Bureau of Investigation, calling for its response to a petition, challenging acceptance by a court of a closure report from the India’s probe agency into the infamous 1998 massacre in Sailan village of Poonch district. A bench of Justice Ramalingam Sudhakar issued notice to CBI and the puppet administration after hearing Advocate Parvaiz Imroz who appeared for the victim families.

The petition claimed that CBI court ignored material evidence and that its decision was arbitrary and findings perverse. “The order has resulted in a serious miscarriage of justice. The CBI court accepted the conclusions of the CBI and failed to appreciate the detailed submissions made by the family members of the victims that clearly indict the forces for the crime and emphasise the need for further investigations that would lead to a charge-sheet and a successful prosecution,” the petition said.

“Due to an overriding interest to protect the perpetrators of the crimes, the closure report that has been submitted and wrongly accepted by the CBI court does not contain the result of a proper and thorough investigation,” the families pleaded.

During the intervening night of 3 and 4 August in 1998, 19 members comprising six males and 13 females of three families were killed in the house of Hussain Muhammad Sheikh with active participation of then SSP J P Jain Singh, Surankote, Major Gora of 9 Para Rashtriya Rifiles and several SPOs.
