New Delhi, Jun 16 (UNI) The National Commission for Minorities has summoned the BSF authorities from Jammu and Kashmir on the complaints of a sub-inspector who had accused his senior bosses of framing him on false charges.
The sub-inspector, Syed Basit Ali, was deployed in the anti-insurgency operation in Badgam district and had earned praise of his seniors, who had even recommednded his name for a gallantry award about eight years ago.
However, later he was chargesheeted by the authorities on the grounds that he seized an AK-47 rifle during operations against militants but did not deposit it with appropriate authorities.
Basit Ali in his complaint to the Commission has said his officers were trying to frame him as he was in the know of various irregularities committed by them, officials of the NCM told UNI here.
The sub-inspector has also in his representation claimed that his officers used to take the credit for arms seized by him during the anti-insurgency operations.
The NCM officials said they decided to summon the BSF officials after they discovered a lot of discrepancies in their chargesheet against Basit Ali.
Moreover, under Rule 46 of the Record of Evidence of the BSF, the unit in which the accused was posted, would not be given the case against him, but, now Basit Ali's own unit has been handed over his case.
''In view of all this the Commission has decided to summon BSF authorities here on June 26,'' the officials said.
