Srinagar, December 09 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the High Court has asked the puppet authorities to make the Koul Commission report public within three weeks.

The High Court described it as final opportunity to the authorities. The report is regarding the killing of protesters during the mass uprising in 2010 during Omar Abdullah-led puppet regime.

Hearing the public interest litigation, a division bench comprising Justice Mohammad Yaqoob Mir and Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey directed the Additional Advocate General (AAG), B A Dar, to file the final response within three weeks.

More than 120 protesters were killed by the Indian troops, police and paramilitary personnel in the Kashmir Valley during the mass uprising in 2010. On 19th June 2014, the then puppet Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, had appointed one-man judicial Commission to probe the killings. The Commission submitted its report in December 2016.

The PIL has been filed by Peoples Forum, an NGO, through its General Secretary M M Shuja seeking a direction for making public the report of the Commission of Justice (retd) M L Koul.
