The Supreme Court today asked the Jammu and Kashmir Police to submit a fresh status report in the probe into the death of its constable Sameer Bhat who allegedly went missing on May 14 after leaving Kupwara for Srinagar.
The constable is alleged to have been killed by his colleague, Special Police Officer Eijaz Ahmed, to avenge his "sexual assault".
The apex court was not satisfied with the status report filed today and sought a detailed and comprehensive report.
Petitioner M K Pandita, who sought an independent probe into the constable's death, said that there was foul play in cop's killing.
Bhat's body was recovered after 21 days on June 7.
Pandita alleged DIG Ghulam Hassan Bhat on May 31 had came out with a version saying that the SPO had allegedly confessed to killing Sameer as the latter had sexually assaulted him on May 13.
