Jammu, January 12

The J&K High Court on Wednesday issued notices to the Centre and the state administration on a petition filed by the father of Amir Magray, one of the four persons killed in an encounter in Hyderpora area, seeking his body for last rites.

The court gave 10 days to the respondents. Magray’s father Mohammad Latief filed a petition on December 30 after his pleas for the return of the body were turned down. A police SIT probing the encounter revealed that while one civilian was killed by a foreign terrorist, two others, including a local “militant” (Magray), died in crossfire after being used as human shield by the hiding ultra. —
