Won’t re-open cases of killings of Kashmiri pandits: Supreme court

Srinagar: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to reopen “215 cases in which 700 Kashmiri Pandits were killed during the 1989-90 unrest in the Valley”.

Refusing to entertain a plea seeking a re-probe and the trial of several persons, including Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik, for alleged offences against the Kashmiri Pandits during that period, an apex court bench observed that it will be difficult to obtain evidence after 27 years.

A bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said, “You (petitioner) sat over it for last 27 years. Now tell us from where the evidence will come.”
