HC asks state to file objections on Sumjhi’s bail petition
Srinagar, Mar 9: The High Court Tuesday granted four days to state for filing objections in granting bail to Hurriyat Conference (G) leader, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, and in shifting him from Kotebhalwal to Central Jail here.
The direction came in response to bail petition filed in the court by the counsel for detainee, Mian Abdul Qayoom.
During the proceedings Qayoom submitted that Sumjhi’s daughter was suffering from carcinoma and needed to be operated upon.
“But the family can’t go along with the medical procedure in absence of the patriarch,” he submitted.
The counsel submitted before the court that a constitutional Bench of Supreme Court in case of AK Roy versus Union of India and others (AIR 1982 SC 710) has authoritatively pronounced that when an order of detention is passed against a person under preventive law, the detainee be kept in detention in a place which is within the environs of his/ her place of residence.
After hearing the arguments, the court directed the state to file objections before Friday when the case is listed for next hearing.
