Srinagar, March 10 (KGN): In occupied Kashmir, the formalities required for the extradition of Major Avtar Singh involved in Jaleel Andrabi’s murder case have been completed, said the prosecution before a city court where the case came up for hearing.
The prosecution submitted that formalities required as per US-India extradition treaty were complete but still it would take some time to take the process to its logical end.
Earlier, Mir Hafizullah, the counsel for Andrabi’s family, had prayed before the court that the prosecution should put on record, steps it has taken, vis-à-vis extradition of accused Major who is said to be in the US.
He also sought a timeframe for the extradition of Major Avtar Singh. “The process of causing the appearance of the involved Major in the case is on for the last 10 years but there has been no breakthrough. This time, the prosecution should make it clear that how much time it will take to bring the accused Major here to face the trial,” Hafizullah argued.
Andrabi’s lawyer also submitted that the court should use its powers to expedite the extradition of Major Singh. “It is unfortunate that even the High Court orders which have been passed in 1997 in the same case have not been implemented by India, so far. The court should pass some directions in this regard,” the counsel added.
