NC worker's death: No CBI probe, says court

New Delhi: A Jammu and Kashmir court on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking a CBI probe into the death of of the National Conference (NC) worker Haji Yousuf.

The plea was filed by the son of slain NC worker Yousuf. The family of the deceased claims Yousuf died after he was beaten up at J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah's residence.

The court said that it cannot direct a CBI inquiry in the case.

Also, the Supreme Court earlier issued a notice to the Centre and to the Omar Abdullah government on another plea seeking a CBI probe into Haji Yousuf's death.

The NC worker allegedly died in police custody after he was questioned at the Chief Minister's residence.
