Govt declines to shift Qayoom
Srinagar, Aug 17: The state government Tuesday declined to shift the incarcerated president of Kashmir High Court Bar Association (HCBA) Mian Qayoom from Hiranagar jail to here while as HCBA decided to take legal recourse including filing of contempt proceedings against Home Commissioner.
Official sources said that government Tuesday responded to the 20-July order by High Court, declining to consider the shifting of Mian Abdul Qayoom from the Hiranagar jail to any jail in Kashmir. The order had called upon government to consider his shifting to Kashmir valley.
The High Court, meanwhile, rejected the contention put forth by the Advocate General on the last date of hearing about Habeas-Corpus filed by Mian Abdul Qayoom being premature in view of the pendency of the matter before advisory board. The court directed listing of case in the next week for final hearing.
Regarding the Habeas-Corpus petitions pertaining to Bar General Secretary, Ghulam Nabi Shaheen, the court also listed the cases for next week.
Following the developments, the HCBA vice-president advocate Aijaz Baidar in a statement here said that Executive Committee and Advisory Counsel meeting, pertaining to the detention of lawyers in the light of the order of rejection passed by the Government, was held this afternoon. Condemning the “recalcitrant attitude” of the state administration in not compiling with High Court’s order the Bar Association has decided to take recourse of legal measures including filing of contempt proceedings against Home Commissioner passing the order of rejection in flagrant violation of court order, he added.
