A case is pending adjudication in a Budgam court against Major Avtar Singh.

The murder of Jalil Andrabi

The body of forty-two-year-old Andrabi, a human rights lawyer and pro-independence political activist associated with the JKLF, was found in the Kursu Rajbagh area of Srinagar on the banks of the Jhelum River on the morning of March 27, 1996. According to press reports, the body was in a burlap bag. According to eyewitnesses, Andrabi was detained at about 6:00 pm on March 8 by a Rashtriya Rifles unit of the army which intercepted his car a few hundred yards from his home in Srinagar. The officer allegedly responsible had fled the country and was wanted by the Indian government in relation to the killing. India had issued a warrant for his arrest and an interpol alert.
