Jammu | The Jammu and Kashmir government today gave prosecution sanction against captured Pakistani militant Mohammed Naved for waging war against the country. District Magistrate of Udhampur, Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, said the Pakistani national has been booked under Section 121 of RPC (waging war against the country) among other sections.
It has been established beyond reasonable doubt that an offence of criminal conspiracy has been committed by the terrorist which attracts the provisions of sections 121 and 121-A RPC. Sanction is hereby accorded as per the provisions of section 196 CrPC for prosecution in the court of law following due procedure established under law, the DM said in a prosecution order here today.
While section 121 of Ranbir Penal Code is waging, or attempting to wage war, or abetting waging of war, against the Government of India, section 121-A is conspiracy to commit offences punishable by section 121. Section 196 of CrPc deals with prosecution for offences against the state and for criminal conspiracy to commit such offence.
