J&K HC asks govt to respond in 10 days

JAMMU, Jan 12: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has asked the government to submit its response in ten days against the writ petition filed by the family of Aamir Magray seeking the return of their son’s body.
Magray, who hailed from Ramban was killed in an alleged gunfight of Hyderpora on November 15 last along with two others – Altaf Bhat and Dr Mudasir. The bodies of the latter two were returned to the families after protects and widespread outrage in Kashmir.
Lateef Magray, father of Amir Magray, subsequently filed a writ petition in Jammu and Kashmir High Court through his counsel Deepika Singh Rajawat, seeking the body of his son.
Magray, in the petition, has pleaded the court to direct the Union Home Ministry, J&K administration and the Director General of Police (DGP) to hand over his body to the family.
Invoking Article 21 of the Constitution, which extends the right to have decent burial as per religious ceremonies and rules, the petitioner has also pleaded that the exhumation of Amir’s body needs to be done at the earliest to save it from getting fully decomposed.
Court has issued the notice to the respondents and has given them 10 days time to respond to the petition regarding the return of the mortal remains of Amir Magray.
January 27 has been fixed as the next date for the hearing of the case.
