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 ...
