High Court asks govt to submit report
DENIAL OF PASSPORT TO WAR’S BROTHER
GK COURT CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Apr 27: Directing the State Government to consider issuance of passport to brother of Peoples Political Party Chairman, Hilal Ahmad War, the High Court has directed the Government to file compliance report within a week.
In 2008 Aijaz Ahmad brother of Hilal applied for passport. However, he was denied it on grounds that his brother, Jameel Ahmad War, was involved in militant activities.
War filed a petition before the court seeking issuance of passport.
However, passport authorities have submitted before the Court that they could not issue passport to Aijaz as Counter Insurgency Department has not given recommendations for it. The government in its objections to the petition said Aijaz’s brother, Jameel was a released militant of Hizbul Mujahideen and had “nexus with subversive elements.”
While hearing the petition, the justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir directed the Home Commissioner and SSP headquarters to submit reasons why they have not recommended his case.
Counsel for Union of India, which is party to the case, said, “Aijaz cannot be issued the international travel document unless and until the State Government, CID-CIK and police made the recommendation after verifying his antecedents.”
Government also submitted that Aijaz’s brother Hilal is chairman of Human Watch and a sympathizer of anti-national elements.
