“The suspension of life sentence and grant of bail to the five accused in the Machhil encounter case has been ordered by Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT), New Delhi and not by an Army Court. It is clarified that the Army Court has no role in the relief granted to the accused,” said Srinagar based Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia.
