SC relief for major in firing case

Shopian Firing Supreme Case restricts Jammu and Kashmir police from taking coercive action against Major Aditya

The Supreme Court also issued notices to the Central and Jammu and Kashmir governments in the matter. Addressing an RSS workers meet in Bihar on Sunday, Bhagwat reportedly said, "Sangh will prepare military personnel within three days which the Army would do in 6-7 months". The petitioner was represented by senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi while Attorney General appeared for the Centre, notes The Tribune (TT) in its report.

Two youth were killed and nine others injured allegedly in Army firing at Ganovpora in Shopian when a stone-pelting mob targeted a convoy.

Today, the apex court directed the J&K government to file response in two weeks to the petition filed by Lt Col Karamveer Singh, father of Maj Aditya Kumar+, seeking quashing of the Shopian FIR.

Text of Trump Jr. Letter: 'You Are an Awful, Awful Person'
Trump's wife , Vanessa , was taken to a hospital on Monday after opening the envelope in her mother's Manhattan apartment. A spokesperson speaking on behalf of the police read the letters to reporters from NBC on the 13th of February.

The FIR was registered against the personnel of 10, Garhwal unit of the Army including Major Kumar under sections 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the Ranbir Penal Code. He claimed his son was not even present on the occasion. The FIR was stayed as the top court heard a plea filed by Army Major Aditya Kumar's father Lieutenant Colonel Karamveer Singh. "It was at this moment that warning shots were fired at the unlawful assembly which, as per the said terms of engagement, is the last resort to be taken before opening fire", said the petition.

It was also said that the intention of Major Aditya was to save Army personnel and property and the fire was inflicted "only to impair and provide a safe escape from a savage and violent mob engaged in terrorist activity". In this context, he reminded the court of the "brutal", "senseless" lynching of Jammu & Kashmir DSP Mohd Ayub Pandith on June 23, 2107, as a "sad but true reminder of the nature of the uncontrolled mob in these areas".

"The manner in which the lodging of the FIR has been portrayed and projected by the political leadership and administrative higher-ups of the state, reflects the extremely hostile atmosphere in the state", the petition said. "A legitimate method of removing any obstacle or impediment for completing the authorised task can be defined as a part of charter of duty", it said.
