SC: Sanction must to book Army officials 

New Delhi: The Supreme court has given its judgment in the Pathribal Encounter case stating that Army permission is needed for the CBI for initiating criminal action against 8 army officials allegedly involved in the encounter.
The Court has given the army eight weeks to decide whether it will hand over the case to CBI or it will do a court martial. 

Five persons were killed in joint operation by army and the J&K police, following a massacre of 35 sikhs at Chattisinghpora in 2000. CBI said it was a fake encounter. The Army opposed the CBI move saying its men have immunity under Armed Forces Special Powers Act. In 2007 Supreme Court stayed the trial in a lower court in Kashmir.
