Take the right decisions 28.11.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
Recently, the Supreme Court, in a public interest litigation filed by the human rights organization, People's Union for Civil Liberties, issued guidelines to regulate "encounters between the police and crime suspects". The court has directed that in every such encounter, an independent investigation shall be conducted by the Crime Investigation Department or the police team of any nearby police station under the supervision of a senior officer (at least a level above the head of the police party engaged in the encounter). A magisterial enquiry under Section 176 of the criminal procedure code must be held in all cases of death which occur in the event of police firing. Information about the incident must be sent to the National Human Rights Commission (or the state human rights commissions, as the case may be) without delay; further, no out-of-turn promotion or instant gallantry awards should be bestowed on the concerned officers soon after the occurrence. It has to be ensured that such rewards are given ...

Army indicts 9 soldiers for killing Kashmir youths 28.11.2014 deccanherald.com
The Army has indicted nine soldiers, including a junior commissioned officer, for killing two teenagers after opening fire at a car they were in at central Kashmir's Budgam district earlier this month. The Army court of inquiry (CoI) found that the soldiers had violated the rules of engagement when they fired at a speeding Maruti 800 car in Chattergam, Chadoora, on November 3, killing Faisal Yusuf and Mehraj-ud-Din Dar and critically wounding two others. Soon after the incident, the Jammu and Kashmir Police had registered a case, while the Army had ordered a CoI into the killings. "Nine soldiers have been found involved in the killings as the court of inquiry has found gross violation of rules of engagement by the soldiers. They have been indicted. There has been a total failure of the command by the officer in-charge of the Army column," an unidentified Army officer was quoted by local media. He confirmed the court martial proceedings have been recommended against the erring soldiers. "The file has been ...

In the open 18.11.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
Right from the beginning, the Machil fake encounter case has beaten a path different from that of several other similar cases in Jammu and Kashmir where civilians were found to have been killed by State forces in cold blood. As with the 2010 deaths of the three youths in Machil, Kupwara, under the guise of a counter-insurgency operation, there have been public protests after the killings. There have also been times when the political leadership has promised justice and civilian courts have found concrete evidence to refute armymen's claims that they had exterminated militants, and not unsuspecting civilians. So, these were not unique to the Machil case. What changed the trajectory of this case was that the army's court of inquiry came to the same conclusion as that of the police, which had pieced together evidence that showed army officers and soldiers had colluded to kill three innocent men and then claim rewards for their deed. This did not happen in the Pathribal encounter case, where the allegations ...

P Chidambaram calls AFSPA 'obnoxious'; calls for amendments to the act 14.11.2014 DNA: Money
Welcoming the life sentence of five army personnel in the Machil fake encounter case in Jammu and Kashmir, former Home Minister P Chidambaram today said the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act is an "obnoxious law" that has no place in a modern, civilised country. "AFSPA is an obnoxious law that has no place in a modern, civilised country. It purports to incorporate the principle of immunity against prosecution without previous sanction. In reality, it allows the Armed Forces and the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) to act with impunity," Chidambaram said in a statement here. He said the Machil incident was not the first or will not be the last case of an alleged encounter involving personnel of Army or CAPF, unless the underlying cause was addressed. "I welcome the decision of the court martial recommending the punishment of life sentence to five Army personnel found guilty of killing three citizens belonging to Kashmir in Machil in 2010," he said. The former Home Minister, who was in office when the ...

Five Armymen get life for deaths in J&K ‘encounter’ 14.11.2014 Asian Age: India
Five Armymen, including two officers, have been sentenced to life in jail for the 2010 killing of three young Kashmiri men in a staged encounter in the Machael area near the Line of Control in Kupwara district. The service benefits of all of them have been suspended, the Army said Thursday, a day after a court-martial delivered the sentence. Shehzad Ahmed, Muhammad Shaffi and Reyaz Ahmed were lured from their homes in Nadihal village of Baramulla district by the Armymen with the promise of money and jobs, and shot dead near the LoC. The gruesome killings led to a two-month agitation in the Kashmir Valley. The Army court martial proceedings began in January this year and ended in September. All the soldiers and officers were found guilty of conspiracy, murder and falsely calling the slain men terrorists. Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah said: “This is indeed a welcome step.” He also tweeted: “I hope we never see such Machael fake encounter type of incidents ever again, and let this serve as ...
