The Steering Committee Against Murder of Democracy today set a two-weeks deadline to appoint a new judge to inquire into the Shillong jailbreak issue.
The SCAMOD which had been fighting for justice in the case had cast aspersions in the sudden resignation of Justice (retd) D Biswas for suddenly giving up his probe into the infamous jailbreak.
"We will give the government a two-weeks time to appoint a new judge to probe and if the government fail to do so there is no other option but to agitate," SCAMOD member Hamletson Dohling said.
On April 10, Justice Biswas resigned as the head of the commission of enquiry after the Assam government appointed him as chairman of Lok Aayog. The Commission was scheduled to submit its findings to the government by May 31, next.
"We are surprised with justice biswas giving leaving the commission of enquiry half way especially when the probe was going smoothly and there were only few sitting left before the commission could have submitted its findings to the government," Dohling said.
Earlier, Chief Minister Dr Mukul M Sangma said that the judicial enquiry into the jailbreak is presently at a standstill due to the resignation of justice D Biswas, as chairman of the commission.
