Dhanda sought a probe by a retired SC judge to get to the bottom of the truth.
The SC on Monday rejected a plea to probe the recent Pulwama terror attacks for possible local involvement.

“The role of local Indian citizens must be probed,” the petition filed by Vineet Dhanda said. “One single person could not have gathered 370 kilos of RDX and rammed it into a convoy of armed forces personnel,” it said. But a two-judge bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi wouldn’t hear of it. The CJI was sitting alongside Justice Sanjiv Khanna.

The court refusal indicates a recognition of the fact that defence was inherently an executive concern and that the lack of expertise to embark any such exercise. The petition had sought a judicial probe into the larger conspiracy behind the terror attack in which 40 armed forces personnel were killed when a suicide bomber rammed into a bus carrying them.

This could not have been done without local support, it said. Dhanda sought a probe by a retired SC judge to get to the bottom of the truth.
