Supreme Court will hear on November 22, the curative petition filed by Roots in Kashmir (RIK), seeking a SIT (Special Investigation Team) probe into Kashmir Pandits’ genocide.
The RIK had to file the curative petition, before the top court, after its review plea was dismissed by the SC, in 2017 on the ground of 27 years delay to file the same.
The Curative petition is the last legal resort in the Indian judicial processs in a case. Roots In Kashmir, is an initiative launched by the Kashmiri Pandit Youth, to fight for many issues, including the Kashmir Pandits genocide issue.
The petition stated that if the 1984 anti-Sikh riots cases can be reopened after 35 years, so why not the Kashmiri Pandits genocide be opened.
“There is no limitation period applicable in crimes against humanity,” the RIK petition said and pleaded to the Supreme Court for a SIT probe into these genocide case.
The three-Judge bench, of the Supreme Court, led by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dr Dhananjaya Yeshwant Chandrachud, and also comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and S Abdul Nazeer, will hear the RIK petition on November 22, Tuesday. (UNI)
