DB sets aside judgement on shifting of Shabir Shah
Srinagar, Mar 12: The Division Bench of the High Court Friday set aside a Single Bench judgment which directed the state to shift the chairman Democratic Freedom party Shabir Ahmad Shah from Kathua jail to Srinagar.
While setting aside the impugned orders passed by Justice Yaqoob Mir of High Court on February 26, the DB, comprising Justice Hakim Imtiyaz Hussain and Justice Hasnain Masoodi directed the judge to reconsider the matter.
The state government on March 9 challenged the Single Bench order of Justice Yaqoob Mir, which had directed the state to shift Shah from Kathua to Srinagar Jail, through a Letter Patent Appeal (LPA). After hearing the submissions made by counsels, the DB allowed the LPA challenging the Single Bench orders. Hence, Shah, has to stay at Kathua jail, who has been detained their under Public Safety Act.
The state had appealed the court through LPA to set aside the impugned order in CMP (Civil Miscellaneous Petition) Number 17 of 2010, titled Shabir Ahmad Shah versus state of J&K.
The state government challenged the order before the Division Bench on the grounds that the jails in the valley are overcrowded.
