Srinagar, March 09, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Additional Advocate General, Riyaz Khan, today, during the hearing of the Kunanposhpora mass rape and torture case informed the Division Bench of High Court of the territory that all proceedings of the case have been stayed by the Indian Supreme Court. The Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society in a statement in Srinagar said this means, investigation and the other issues in the ongoing writ petition in the High Court on the Kunanposhpora matter are now seized by the Supreme Court.
It said this is for the first time, that the Kunanposhpora matter was heard by the Supreme Court of India. Earlier, it added, the Single Bench of the High Court had stayed the investigations on Kunanposhpora matter on the petition filed by the Indian army and now on the petition filed by the Kashmir authorities. The Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society said this is a very big example of how pro-people and sensitive the present puppet administration is towards the human rights and the issues of justice of people of Kashmir.
The present Peoples Democratic Party-led regime is sustaining the efforts of the puppet regime led by National Conference, Congress or the Governor’s rule where in the only effort has been to inflict injustice on people and provide impunity to soldiers, it maintained.
