Srinagar: In a murder case, the case have been heard against the accused in any court for almost 30 years, such a case hardly came from any corner of the country. But one such case in Jammu and Kashmir having special status till 5 August 2019 has come to light after hearing the dust in the court and police station.
The high-profile case is that of Yasin Malik, the head of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front. Yasin Malik and his associates were charged on January 25, 1990, in the Sanat Nagar area of Kashmir for killing 4 Air Force officers and injuring 22 people. In August 1990, the CBI had filed a charge sheet against Malik and his associates in the TADA court in Jammu, whose hearing was stayed in 1995 by a single bench of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court.
Actually, there is no TADA court in Kashmir, so this case cannot be heard in Jammu. Thirty years later, it has now been allowed to hear the case. Yasin Malik is currently lodged in Tihar Jail in the custody of the NIA in connection with Terror Funding.
