The apex court on Monday has put a stay on First Information Report (FIR) filed against Major Aditya Kumar of 10 Garhwal Rifles in connection with the death of three civilians in an alleged Army firing in Shopian last month.

As per media reports, the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir government, seeking their response within two weeks in the matter.

The court also ordered that no coercive action should be initiated against the Army personnel.

Advocate Aishwarya Bhati, who filed the petition on behalf of Lieutenant Colonel Karamveer Singh, father of the Army personnel, told mediapersons, “The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Centre and Jammu and Kashmir government while we have been asked to submit a copy of the petition to the office of Attorney General of India (AGI). The court has requested AGI to clarify the Centre’s stand on the case within two weeks. The state government has also been asked to issue a clarification within the given time period.”

The stay order came after Singh, submitted the plea before the apex court, claiming that the firing was undertaken to control “a savage and violent mob engaged in terrorist activity” and that the FIR violated the fundamental rights of his son. The Army officer added that the plea was submitted “for protecting the morale of the soldiers of Indian Army, who are facing all odds in performance of their bonafide duties and laying their lives in the line of duty, to uphold the dignity of the Indian flag”.

The Jammu-Kashmir Police had lodged an FIR under Section 302 (murder charge) against the Army personnel and his unit for opening fire on a group of stone-pelting mob in Ganovpora village in Shopian. While two persons were killed on the spot, a third succumbed to his injuries later. The incident prompted Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to order a probe into the killings.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites
for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

One could say that show has a cheerful mix of funny and heavy.

That's what's so good about it, countless uses for flash as a controller
possibly even. I'd actually highly advise against this tool.

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal
but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about
creating my own but I'm not sure where to start.
Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused ..
Any recommendations? Thanks!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
A small number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
