Special CBI court to be set up in J&K
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government has approved setting up of a special court for speedy trial of the cases investigated by the CBI in the state.
The decision to set up a special CBI court was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday, an official spokesman said.
At present, the cases investigated by CBI are tried by Chief Judicial Magistrate, Srinagar, which has been designated for such cases. However, the trials of these cases often take much time due to a large number of litigations pending before the CJM court.
The Cabinet also accorded administrative approval to the construction of 4-lane pre-stressed bridge (fourth Tawi Bridge) downstream of the existing bridge over the river Tawi at Jammu at an estimated cost of Rs 147 crore.
