Srinagar: Fearing that the alleged custodial
death of NC worker Syed Mohammad Yousuf was being "hushed up",
son of the deceased leader has moved a petition in a court
here seeking CBI probe.

Syed Talib, son of the deceased National Conference
worker, moved the petition before the court of Special Judge
anti-corruption, demanding registration of a murder case and
CBI inquiry into the matter.

"The applicant who is the son of the deceased wants a
direction from the court for registration of a case in due
course of law by CBI or any other state agency," Mushtaq Ahmad
Dar, the lawyer representing Yousuf`s family, told.

The petition said the family of the deceased fears the
case has been "hushed up".

The case, filed on Saturday, has been listed for hearing
on October 28.
