The Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal to investigate the deaths and exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in the words of Barr and Bench.
The court granted the applicant to withdraw his plea and seek a suitable solution. The plea was submitted on behalf of Ashutosh Taploo, whose father Tika Lal Taploo was shot dead by a JKLF militants at the time the news agency ANI said.
The court rejected the plea. justices composed of Justice BR Gavai said, “We do not support the plea. Similar petitions were dismissed in the past.”
In March, this year an Kashmiri Pandit organisation filed a curative appeal in the Supreme Court against the top court’s order of 2017 that had rejected a request to conduct an investigation of”the “mass murders and genocide of Kashmiri Pandits during 1989-90 and subsequent years” as well as the “reasons for non-prosecution of FIRs” of the instances.
The complaint filed by “Roots in Kashmir’ was in reference to the SC orders that dismissed the writ petition filed on July 24 2017, and also the review petition filed against it on the 25th of October, 2017 in the belief it was more than 27 years had passed in the case, and the evidence is likely not to be made available.
The petitioner argued it was the SC who found that it was “not justified at all in dismissing the writ petition at the admission stage by merely on presumption” of the evidence not being available due to the passage of time and cited numerous cases to support the assertion.
The SC ruling that ruled against its appeal and review is as well “contrary” to what the SC had stated in its ruling in Japani Sahoo. Chandra Sekhar Mohanty that “a crime never dies” as the plea stated.
