Yasin, Bitta Karate get breather, SC says no to re-opening of cases

The Apex Court on Monday refused to entertain a plea seeking re-investigation and prosecution of persons, including separatist leaders Yasin Malik and Bitta Karate, in connection with the alleged killing of over 700 Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley during 1989-90.

A bench comprising of Chief Justice of India (CJI) J.S. Khehar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said that the evidences would be difficult to be found out as almost 27 years have passed by.

Advocate for petitioner Vikash Pandora appearing for the organisation ‘root of Kashmir’, said that Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes. The Supreme court also asked the petitioner to come up with the evidences, if possible.
