HC stays attachment of Superintendent Dental College Jmu
Jammu, Aug 8: Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Saturday stayed an attachment order of Superintendent Dental College Jammu, which was allegedly issued at the behest of minister for Health Education.
While issuing notice to the respondents including the minister, who has been made party to the petition in his personal capacity, Justice Mansoor Ahmed Mir stayed the order issued by the Principal Secretary Health and Medical Education allegedly at the behest of Minister for Medical Education.
The counsel for the petitioner, Dr Mohan Singh Superintendent Government Indhira Gandhi Dental College Jammu, alleged that the minister resorted to vengeance after he failed to include names of some of his blue-eyed candidates in the selection list the posts of Registrar/Demonstrator, Tutor and House Officer, which was prepared and issued by a Selection Committee comprising ten members, including the petitioner as member secretary.
The minister kept the list in abeyance and subsequently quashed the list with fresh direction for a fresh selection by a Committee constituted by him. The selected candidates challenged the selection order and obtained stay in terms of interim order passed by the High Court on July 21, 2010.
The petitioner further alleged that the minister was further annoyed with the court direction and resorted to other means by withdrawing his drawing and disbursing powers, which has already been challenged.
The court after hearing the counsel for the petitioner and Advocate General with Deputy Advocate General for the state issued notices to the respondent with further direction that till next date of hearing the operation of impugned order, so far as it relates to attachment of the petitioner shall remain stayed.
