Jailbreak hearing 
By Our Reporter

SHILLONG: The Shillong Bench of the Gauhati High Court on Thursday issued an interim stay order on an earlier order issued on September 27 by Justice (retired) SP Rajkhowa who is heading the inquiry commission probing into the Shillong Jailbreak incident on May 31 2009.

In his order, Rajkhowa had decided not to examine anymore witnesses but to proceed ahead with the arguments on the findings of the inquiry commission. Rajkhowa had also fixed the date for the arguments on October 22.

The fresh court order came following a writ petition filed by SCAMOD which questioned the order issued by Rajkhowa.

The High Court, meanwhile, decided to hear the SCAMOD writ petition on November 3.

In the writ petition, SCAMOD had pleaded that their counsel should be allowed to examine Police Sub-Inspector RA Sangma who conducted the first inquest on the body of slain Fullmoon Dhar, the mastermind behind the jailbreak.

SCAMOD also pleaded the court to allow its counsel to cross-examine the Forensic Science Laboratory examiner from Guwahati, the doctor who conducted the second post-mortem after the body of Fullmoon was exhumed and also the dealing assistant who pasted the white paper on the file relating to transfer of the DGP.
