During the hearing on the petition of Major Aditya Kumar’s father about the firing incident in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian, the state government told the court today that the name of Major Aditya was not named in the FIR. The Supreme Court has banned investigation in the FIR against Major Aditya and others of the Army. The Supreme Court said that in this case, the state police will not investigate till April 24.
The Supreme Court will hear the matter for the final hearing on April 24. Chief Justice said that this matter is of the army officer, not of any ordinary criminal. The Jammu and Kashmir government said in the Supreme Court – Major Aditya’s name is not named as an accused in FIR. It has been written only that they were leading the battalion.
Court asked, what name will be taken? The state government said that it depends on investigation. The court should allow the investigation of the matter to continue. At the same time, during the hearing, the central and state government appeared face-to-face in this matter.
AG Venugopal said that under the Army Act 7, the state government can not file FIR in this way. For this, the permission of the Center is necessary. At the same time, the state government opposed it. The state government said that it is not needed when lodging FIRs. The Supreme Court will now decide whether the FIR is valid or not.
