New Delhi, Sep 20 (UNI) The Supreme Court will hear on October 1 a petition filed by Panthers Party general secretary Anita Thakur seeking a judicial inquiry into the alleged Jammu and Kashmir police action in which workers of Panthers Party were brutally beaten up.
According to the petitioner, the party workers were demanding the rehabilitation of Kashmiri migrants who had fled the State in view of threats from Kashmiri militants, as per the orders passed by the Supreme Court in July 2006.
A Bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhan and V S Sirpurkar fixed the date of hearing after the matter was mentioned for early hearing by Mr Bhim Singh, an advocate, who is also the Panthers Party's chief.
Nine police officers have been named in the petition against whom the action has been sought.
A contempt of court petition against Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Union Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta, is already pending for not complying with the order of the apex court.
