Embarrassed, CM Mehbooba forced to take U-turn in Major Aditya Kumar case

The State Government in its status-report filed in the Hon'ble Supreme Court has said the name of Major Aditya doesn't figure in the FIR.

"Let the matter be listed for final disposal on 24 April, 2018. You can not treat him like an ordinary criminal".

It is not as if the Supreme Court directions on Monday stopping the probe by Jammu and Kashmir Police till April 24 when it will decide whether the State Police was correct in lodging an FIR against Army personnel knowing fully well that such an action required sanction under the Armed Forces Special Protection Act (AFSPA) will restrain those politicians and civil society groups with a deeply imbued separatist and/or separateness agenda from continuing their assault on the idea of One India.

In its report, the Mufti government complained that the Army does not respond to its letters and asked "Are they above the law?" and "Whether Army has a license to kill?". "Yes, CM Mehbooba is anguished by Sunday's firing and killing of six people in Shopian, which shifted the earth under her feet at least in south Kashmir, but she has not lost hope of winning the hearts and minds of alienated people in Kashmir, particularly in south kashmir, her party's bastion", sources close to her said, referring to CBMs announced by Mehbooba, including amnesty for stone-pelters and the Centre's appointment of former IB director Dineshwar Sharma as an interlocutor to help resolve the crisis in the state. Copies of the FIR available locally and visible of social media clearly show Major Aditya's name mentioned in the FIR. The bench further informed that the in the meantime, there shall be no investigation on the basis of FIR till then.

The defence spokesperson in Srinagar said those killed had been travelling in two vehicles that ignored a signal to stop at a checkpost, and from which heavy firing was opened.

Major Kumar and other soldiers of 10 Garhwal Rifles have been accused of opening fire on a stone-pelting mob which had attacked an Army convoy near Ganowpora village on January 27.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, which on 12 February had stopped the state police from taking any coercive step against the major on a petition filed by his father, Lt Col Karamveer Singh, who sought quashing of the FIR, completely stalled the investigation into the Shopian FIR on Monday.

In his plea, Singh stated his son, a Major in 10 Garhwal Rifles, was "wrongly and arbitrarily" named in the FIR.
