Court reserves judgement on HBOA election row
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 18: A local Court on Thursday reserved judgement in a suit filed over holding of elections for the House Boats Owners Association even as the counsel for the caretaker Chairman of the HBOA, Manzoor Ahmed Wangnoo, appeared for the hearing, which lasted for over an hour. The verdict, as per the lawyers, is expected to be pronounced soon.
Wangnoo’s counsel Advocate Mir Syed Lateef pleaded before the Court of Sub Registrar Srinagar, Abdul Majeed Dar that the applicant Muhammad Yaqoob Dunoo, a member of the association, who had filed application seeking the HBOA elections had no “locus-standi to file the suit.”
“The suit is not maintainable as plaintiff has no locus-standi to file the suit,” Lateef pleaded.
“The matter involves the association as a whole and in terms of the order 1 rule 8 of the code of civil procedure the suit is not maintainable,” the lawyer pleaded.
Lateef added that the HBOA has already issued a notice duly signed by Manzoor Ahmed Wangnoo, the caretaker chairman, Ghulam Muhammad Pakhtoon, Vice Chairman and Abdul Rashid, General Secretary that the association has decided to hold a general meeting on September 16, 20011 to finalize date for the elections.
“And this was prior to the institution of the suit,” the lawyer added.
Pertinently earlier this month Muhammad Yaqoob Dunoo, had submitted an application seeking elections.
He had also accused Wangnoo of creating hurdles in the election process through his counsel Bashir Siddiq.
