“ Who are the persons who have encroached upon the grazing land in district Budgam and what action has been taken till today by the government,” reads the order passed by Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir.
The court has also asked counsel for the petitioner, M Y Bhat to file response to the status report that would be filed by the state vis- a -vis the persons who have usurped the land.
The court pronounced the order after granting bail to Nazir Ahmad Dar who was arrested on the directions of Tehsildar Budgam for breach of peace under section 107 of RPC after an issue of grazing land grab cropped up at Gousia Colony, Gogoland, near Airport Road.
During the arguments, the Deputy Advocate General, N H Shah pleaded that Deputy Commissioner Budgam will remove all the encroachments on the grazing land.
Counsel for the petitioner, M Y Bhat pleaded that the government should disclose all the names of the persons who have encroached upon the grazing land in Gousia colony Budgam.
Following the submission of counsel for the petitioner to consider the bail application of the accused as the petition and the state to be arrayed as respondent party, the court allowed the state as respondent through its Chief secretary, Commissioner Secretary Revenue, Financial Commissioner revenue, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Deputy commissioner Budgam, Assistant Commissioner (Revenue) Budgam and Tehsidar Settlement Budgam.
