been a long time coming — the appeal was first filed in 1999 Related News By: KPS Gill The Supreme Court’s order defining guidelines for encounter fatalities has been a long time coming — the appeal was first filed in 1999 But it is a critical reiteration of the law at a time when there has been a tremendous deterioration in the top leadership of the police The involvement of police officers including many in the hallowed IPS in cases of massive corruption their extreme politicisation and at least some cases where “encounters” have allegedly been transformed into outright assassination at the behest of rival criminal gangs underline the necessity of procedural safeguards The issue of encounters fake and genuine is crucial to the credibility of the police and of the justice system particularly within a democratic polity It is necessary to acknowledge that while the police does and must have powers to take a man’s life under certain pressing circumstances preventing the abuse of such powers has to be a concern The main thrust of the 16-point guidelines issued by the court endorses existing laws on the subject the most significant of which are already followed in all but the most egregious cases Crucially an independent inquiry by a senior officer of a jurisdiction other than that of the operational unit involved or by an independent agency like the criminal investigation department of the state in some cases is routine in all encounter deaths A magisterial inquiry under Section 176 of the Criminal Procedure Code has long been an option but has rightly been made mandatory by the present order Far from undermining the authority of the police it will provide greater legitimacy to justifiable cases of the state’s use of lethal force and constrain the criminality of “ketchup heroes” who fabricate encounters to earn accolades and awards or abuse their powers for extraneous reasons There are nevertheless some difficulties with the order not so much because the requirements themselves are unacceptable but rather because of the dismal state of policing and police and administrative capacity The guidelines call for detailed evidence-gathering in the wake of each incident of death in encounters including the immediate record of statements dusting for fingerprints recovery and preservation of evidentiary material “including blood-stained earth hair fibres and threads etc” preparation of topographical sketches of the location of the incident gathering of evidence of weapons including bullets cartridges testing for gunshot residues etc The truth is even in cases of crime in police-dense metropolitan areas standards of investigation are abysmal and the court’s order makes no distinction between an encounter in such a city environment crowd-control duties or counter-insurgency operations in remote and jungle locations Many encounters with armed insurgents involve scores and sometimes hundreds of armed miscreants and state personnel The idea that these under situations of extreme stress in locations that are at best under transient state control can be subjected to meticulous “investigation” by a range of “independent agencies” is unrealistic given existing police capacity and acute deficits in forensic and technical capabilities across wide regions affected by insurgency Of course even in a case such as the Chintalnar massacre where an entire CRPF unit of 75 personnel and one state police trooper were wiped out an independent inquiry was carried out deep inside Maoist-dominated jungles even as the investigative team came under insurgent fire Whether such procedures can be replicated in such circumstances in all encounter cases is a moot question Further the requirement of magisterial inquiry is also likely to be limited to depositions in secure district headquarters I do recall that at the height of terrorism in Punjab when a slew of baseless allegations regarding false encounters was being pressed by a range of terrorist front organisations and useful idiots I had suggested that an executive magistrate should accompany each unit that went into counter-terrorist operations “We did not join the service to get ourselves killed” was the derisive response from the magistrates The directive regarding recording of intelligence flows is also likely to create practical problems Such a record will either be of so general a nature as to have no evidentiary utility or would have the potential to put operations — and lives — at risk if it were to be compromised The very pattern of intelligence flows can result in the identification of sources Moreover a number of operations are the outcome of immediate opportunity where forces are engaged in general area domination or patrolling exercises If this guideline is to be meaningfully followed the court and the top police leadership will need to apply their minds to the character and content of the records to ensure that errors of judgement do not compromise operational efficacy The court rightly cites its own judgment in Om Prakash vs State of Jharkhand (2012) where it was noted that “one cannot be oblivious of the fact that there are cases where the police who are performing their duty are attacked and killed… Unless unimpeachable evidence is on record to establish that their action is indefensible mala fide and vindictive they cannot be subjected to prosecution Sanction must be a precondition to their prosecution It affords necessary protection to such police personnel…” An impartial procedure that satisfies the imperatives of justice as well as the interests of effective enforcement is of course necessary in all cases of encounters It remains to be seen whether the present guidelines can actually secure these objectives in the chaotic operational environment that characterises enforcement action in India under the present circumstance of endemic deficits in manpower training and technical support The writer is a former

News The NDA government’s decision to cancel the foreign secretary-level talks with Pakistan scheduled for next week underscores once again the accident-prone nature of the bilateral relationship It fits in with the long-established pattern in India-Pakistan diplomacy “On-again off-again” has been the defining feature of the dialogue between Delhi and Islamabad for more than a quarter of a century The dialogue has been subject to unpredictable mood swings of the leaders in both capitals The need to posture before domestic political constituencies has often pushed them to suspend formal conversations The dialogue has been vulnerable to actions by one side that were wrongly presumed to be below the other’s threshold of tolerance There were times when one or the other set preconditions for the dialogue Yet there never has been an extended period during the last three decades when there was no dialogue between India and Pakistan Despite enduring political and military tensions Delhi and Islamabad have found there is no alternative to keeping on talking The introduction of nuclear weapons in the arsenals of both countries has meant that they couldn’t afford not to have continuous political communication Delhi’s decision to call off the talks this time appears different from the previous ruptures in the bilateral engagement In the past Delhi suspended talks in the aftermath of a major terror attack on India but resumed them after a reasonable interval Delhi’s justification for the latest move has ostensibly come from the Pakistan high commissioner’s step to meet separatist leaders from Kashmir The NDA government has argued that this amounts to unacceptable interference in India’s internal affairs by Pakistan In the recent past however both the UPA and the NDA governments were willing to overlook Pakistan’s interaction with Kashmiri separatist leaders in the interest of sustaining a dialogue with Islamabad It is not known whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thought through the implications of a unilateral attempt to change the terms of the dialogue There is nothing on the ground to suggest that the balance of power between India and Pakistan has tilted so much in Delhi’s favour that Islamabad will accept new terms of engagement There is no escaping the fact that this decision while winning enthusiastic endorsement from sections of the political class and the strategic community significantly limits Delhi’s own flexibility in dealing with Pakistan Renewed tensions with Pakistan will invite international attention to Kashmir and offers from all and sundry to mediate between Delhi and Islamabad If Delhi has acted in a fit of anger Modi’s diplomatic learning curve would have to be rather steep And for sure it will be costly For

educational infrastructure and academic activities were severely affected That is why in the early 90s a majority of the middle class Kashmiris preferred to send their children outside the Valley for education These schools later turned into camps and also the places were former students were held under detention and people mostly avoided passing through them This has remained trapped in the memory of not just ordinary citizens but educationists too Bashir Ahmad Dar a noted academic and former Secretary with Board of School Education (BOSE) said the sight of a soldier inside the premises

exams” Var asked Arif Iqbal the Chief Education Officer (CEO) Srinagar said that his office has not given permission to any agency to use school buildings or its premises for any use He said when
