STATE TIMES NEWS REASI: Chief Judicial Magistrate Reasi Amarjeet Singh Langeh on Friday directed SSP to file status report in case pertaining to missing of a person for the last two years. In the application filed by the father of the missing person, it was stated that his son Ashok Singh was working at Baradari (name of place) in Reasi dealing with loading of sand, Bajri and stones in vehicles from River Chenab and on June 12, 2018, while his son had gone for work, he was abducted by non-applicants from Zero Morh Talwara and this was learnt by applicant from some persons during the process of tracing of his son. “The applicant filed a missing report and an application for registration of FIR against non-applicants with police post Talwara on June 14, 2018 alleging that the non-applicants had also severely beaten his missing son many times when he used to go on work. SHO Police Station, Reasi and Incharge Police Post, Talwara have not taken any action on the application/ complaint of the applicant and thereupon on November 25, 2018, applicant approached SSP, Reasi requesting her to intervene into the matter and take appropriate action but no action was taken by SSP, Reasi. Later, on September 23, 2019, applicant also approached IGP, Jammu but nothing was done by him also. Finally on February 3, 2020, applicant also approached the Lieutenant Governor of U. T. of J&K but nothing has been done yet”, the application stated. The grievance of applicant is that no tangible action has been taken on his aforesaid applications and he therefore has chosen to approach this court with prayer that SHO Police Station, Reasi be directed to register an FIR against accused for offences under Sections 364, 365 and 368 RPC and other relevant provisions of penal statute, trace his son and investigate the matter in accordance with law. An affidavit in support of this application, as aforesaid has also been filed. CJM after gone through the application observed that the contents of application and relevant material annexed therewith – would show that applicant has not only approached SSP, Reasi with aforesaid grievance but also represented before Inspector General of Police – Jammu as also Lt. Governor of U. T. of J&K on aforesaid date. CJM Reasi further observed that the application in hand shows that allegations here in pertain to missing of a human being and are grave. “Matter seems to have been brought to the notice of IGP, Jammu as also SSP, Reasi by applicant in writing. Not in murmurs but in a loud and clear manner, applicant has repeated the allegations before authorities aforementioned. Applicant is on affidavit that police has chosen not to show its indulgence in the matter. In light of allegations as grave as pen-pictured in the application, it needs to be ascertained as to what scale and extent an indulgence has been exhibited by police in the matter. Law does not permit matters like one at hand to be kept in dark tunnel in a way that grates against the mandate of penal law. At this stage, nothing more needs to be said”, the court observed and directed SSP to file status report.
