Officials said the charge sheet was filed on Saturday in the court of the Principal District and Sessions Judge, Shopian. He said that in the charge sheet Captain Bhupinder, Bilal Ahmed and Tabish Ahmed of 62 Rashtriya Rifles of the Army have been accused for their role in the alleged fake encounter.
The youth killed in the encounter were residents of Rajori district. The army said on Friday that it had completed a summary of evidence against two people involved in the Amshipura encounter case in Shopian district in July. Army officials said a court martial could take place after the formalities were completed. Earlier in this case, the army ordered the Court of Inquiry when news came on social media that army personnel killed three youths in a gunfight in an encounter.
The Court of Inquiry investigation was completed in September. It was initially found that during the encounter on 18 July, these jawans violated the powers rules under the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).
After this, the army started disciplinary action. Officials associated with the development said that two army personnel may face court martial for violation of powers vested under AFSPA.
