HC gives Govt 3 weeks more on Koul Commission report
9/13/2017 10:27:18 PM
Early Times Report
Srinagar, Sept. 13: The J&K High Court on Wednesday granted the state government three more weeks to file response to a Public Interest Litigation seeking direction for making report by the one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI) headed by Justice (retd) ML Koul.
A division bench of the court comprising Chief Justice Badar Durez Ahmad and Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey granted the time after Additional advocate General sought four weeks more time.
The court has asked the government through Chief Secretary and the Commissioner Secretary Home to file the response to PIL which also seeks the directions to the government to implement the recommendations of the CoI including those regarding grant of compensation to the victim families.
It also seeks directions to the government to submit the action taken report with respect to findings of the Commission before the court.
"The state has not so far either made the report public or disclosed as to what action it has taken or contemplated to be taken to mitigate the sufferings of the victims with the result that the society at large carries an impression that constitution of such commission is an exercise in futility.
Such impression is not only detrimental to the peace and security in the state but also speaks volumes about the transparency and accountability of the system and of those managing the system," reads the PIL.
The state government was under a constitutional obligation to make the report public so that any lapse pointed out in the report was taken note of, the PIL said. "By keeping the public at large in dark the state is indulging in gross abuse of process of law and trying to shield those who may have been held guilty by the commission," it reads further.
"Had the report been filed on time and the recommendations implemented, the unrest of 2016 and the continuing disturbance in the Valley could have been averted," it added.
