Zainakote Accident: Army likely to take over case from JKP

Army is mulling to opt for the option of ‘inquiry on its own’ in the Zainakote accident case which left seven persons dead while police have began process to send information sheet, known as Form 12, to the police station where the accused actually resides.
Seven persons including a pregnant woman were killed Wednesday when an army vehicle rammed into a passenger cab on Srinagar-Baramulla highway. Police have seized the vehicle, arrested its driver and lodged a case for further investigation.
Sources said that army is actively considering getting the police investigation stopped and opting to conduct inquiry in the accident on its own.
“Once army decides and communicates the decision to the police to hold inquiry on its own, police cannot take the investigations further. However, the final call on the issue will be taken shortly,” said sources privy to the development.
A senior police official, wishing not to be named, said that process has begun to send the contents of FIR in the form of Form 12 to the concerned police station where the accused actually resides. “Form 12 is sent to the original place of accused to the concerned police station to put the allegations against accused on record,” he informed.
