Jaleel Andrabi Murder Case: Court adjourns hearing
KT NEWS SERVICE
SRINAGAR, Dec 8: A city court today adjourned hearing in Jaleel Andrabi murder case as the judge was on leave.

According to advocate Mir Hafizullah, the counsel for Andrabi’s family, the court has now listed the case for hearing on December 31.

Earlier on November 10, the prosecution had sought time to produce the certified document of Selma Cornor’s office California confirming death of Major Avtar Singh wanted in Andrabi murder case.

The court had asked the prosecution to submit the required confirmation from Californian police. On October 11, the Court had directed the IGP Crime to submit a copy of information from Selma Cornor’s office California or a copy of information submitted by Selma police to United States National Central Bureau (USNCB) Interpol Washington certifying death of Major Singh.

The 47-year-old Major Singh had fled to the United States after he was accused of killing Andrabi, whose body was fished out from River Jhelum in March 1996.

On September 15, the court had passed a similar direction asking prosecution to confirm death of Major Singh who reportedly committed suicide after killing his family members in California.

The prosecution, on July 28, this year submitted an email of Interpol-Washington before the court confirming death of Major Avtar Singh wanted in Jaleel Andrabi murder case.

Unites States National Central Bureau (USNCB) of Interpol based in Washington had in its email sent to National Central Bureau (NCB) New Delhi on June 20 authenticated that Major Avtar Singh was no more alive.

“Interpol-Washington received confirmation from the Selma Coronor’s office that the above mentioned subject is deceased,” read the Interpol email sent by USNCB Interpol Washington vide its letter reference number 20091021799/FYL.

Earlier on a Srinagar court direction, NCB New Delhi had requested the Interpol-Washington vide its message reference number IP-02/67/2009 to ascertain the death of Major Avatar Singh who as per media reports committed suicide in California on June 9, 2012.

Based on the report of Interpol Washington, the Assistant Director NCB-Interpol New Delhi had authenticated death of Major Avtar Singh. Also, the Assistant Director-NCB Delhi has informed to the Crime authorities in Kashmir that the Red Corner Notice against Major Avtar Singh has been cancelled through INTERPOL Secretariat General (IPSG) headquarters France.

“It is therefore requested that the Look Out Circular (LOC) against above cited subject (Major Avtar Singh) may please be cancelled, read the letter of Assistant Director NCB New Delhi sent to deputy director (immigration) ministry of home affairs New Delhi, DIG police Crime headquarters Srinagar and senior system analyst CBI New Delhi.

However, after stiff objections from the family lawyer of Jaleel Andrabi, the court had asked the prosecution to authenticate the death of Major Singh through a report to be submitted through IGP Crime and Railways.

Major Singh was wanted in a Srinagar court to face trial for his alleged involvement in the murder case of Jaleel Andrabi, a prominent lawyer and human rights activist of Kashmir, who was abducted and later killed in 1996.

On June 10, 2012 it was world wide reported through electronic as well as print media that Major Avtar Singh killed his entire family including three children, and then shot himself in California where was reportedly operating a trucking business.

In early morning hours, on June 9, Avtar Singh, reportedly staged a dramatic end to his life by killing his family and then shooting himself in California. His family included a three-year-old child who was shot by his father on bed.

A foreign news agency quoting Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputy, Chris Curtice said Major Singh called Selma police at around 6:15 a.m. Saturday and told them that he had just killed four people and wanted to kill himself.

Selma police had later asked for assistance from the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office because Singh was known to have a military background and was wanted by a court in Srinagar for Andrabi’s cold blooded murder.

When a Sheriff’s SWAT team entered the home they found bodies of Singh, a woman believed to be his wife and two children, ages 3 and 15, Curtice has been quoted saying. All four appeared to have died from gunshot wounds.

A 17-year-old boy also found in the home was suffering from severe head trauma and was “barely alive,’’ Curtice said. The teen was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery.
