Court refuses to grant bail to Papa Kishtwari’s close aide

Srinagar: A local court here did not consider the bail plea of a close aide of dread gunman Papa Kishtawari saying that bail can be considered only after going through facts and material available with the court.

The case of notorious government gunman Papa Kishtwari was listed before the court of 4th Additional District Judge Srinagar C.L Bawaria.

The counsel for the complainant Advocate Babar Jan Qadri vehemently opposed the bail plea of the close aide and driver of Papa Kishtwari, Ghulam Rasool Ganaie alias Gulzar.

The Counsel for the accused persons Gaffar Mansoor submitted that court has already directed to close the evidence in case the trial was not concluded within three months as per the order passed in year 2011. However, the counsel for the complainant while accusing his opponent of misleading the court read the court order in right context and thus refuted the assertions made by the lawyer of accused persons.

After the arguments, the court while rejecting any discussion on bail plea listed the case for next hearing on 22 January 2016.
