wamiq-farooqKL Report


Upholding the CJMs verdict, the Additional Districts Sessions Judge 2nd, Srinagar Tuesday dismissed the revision petition about Wamiq Farooq killing case filed by Police directing it to get the accused cops before the trial court scheduled to hear the case on March 3, 2014.

Pertinently, Wamiq Farooq, a thirteen year old boy, was killed in January 2010, after he was hit by a tear smoke shell in Rajouri Kadal in old city Srinagar.

Abdul Khaliq Sofi (ASI) and Mohammad Akram (Constable) had filed revision against the order dated August 22, 2013 passed by then CJM, Srinagar.

“Perusal of the trial court record reveals that there was sufficient material before Ld. CJM to frame an opinion about the involvement of the petitioners with the commission of the offences. The report filed by the Ld. Enquiry Magistrate establishes the fact that the petitioners have used fire arms without any provocation and without there being any need or occasion for them to use the firearms because it has been stated by all the witnesses examined by the magistrate that on the particular date no rioting was going on and people were involved in their daily activities,” reads the order pronounced by Parvez Hussain Kachroo, 2nd Additional Sessions Judge, Srinagar.

The order further reads, “the revision fails and is dismissed. The revision file after due completion shall be consigned to records and trial court be sent down.”

Pertinently, Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar had issued arrest warrants against Assistant Sub Inspector Abdul Khaliq Sofi and Constable Mohmmad Akram of J&K Police in 2013.

“Enough evidence is available against the accused based on the judicial inquiry and report of Special Investigation Team,” read the order of Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar Rajeev Gupta directing police department to arrest the duo accused.
