JK Chief Secretary gets 1 day to file compliance report

‘Bureaucrats Need To Be Pulled Up For Taking Judicial Process For Granted’

REHABILITATION OF POOR GIRLS

D A RASHID

Srinagar, Dec 3: The Jammu and Kashmir Monday granted one more day to the Chief Secretary to file a compliance report in a case of rehabilitation of poor girls ‘exploited in the garb of providing jobs.’
 A division bench of the High Court comprising Justice Virender Singh and Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar directed the state government to file compliance report on Tuesday after Additional Advocate General JA Kawoosa representing the State informed the court that the compliance report has been already dispatched by the government but due to postal delay he was not in receipt of the same.
 The Amicus Curie B A Bashir submitted that bureaucrats do not take the court directions seriously saying “they don’t file the compliance report unless the Court issues a series of directions.” He said they need to be pulled up as they are taking the judicial process for granted.
 In keeping with its gravity, the Chief Justice had already directed for listing the case before the division bench.
 During hearing of the case on November 4, the Court had expressed displeasure for not filing the compliance report in the case and had directed the Chief Secretary to appear in person or file report before the court on December 3.
 The court, after dismissing the petition of Muhammad Amin Beigh seeking quashment of  (PSA) detention him for allegedly exploiting girls under the garb of providing them jobs, had passed a series of directions asking the government to take steps to ensure rehabilitation of poor girls in the state.
 The Court had directed the government to take immediate steps for conferring powers on all the Courts of Additional District Judges in Jammu and Kashmir barring Srinagar and Jammu districts under Prevention of Corruption Act, SVT.2006 (1949 A.D). The Court had also directed the government to take steps for amending the PC Act or make new laws for retrieving the money/wealth and for confiscating properties accumulated through corrupt practices.
 The Chief Secretary of the State was directed to take steps to give proper publicity to the schemes sponsored by the Central Government and the State Government for the upliftment and assistance to the poor girls so that they would earn their livelihood and live a dignified life.
 The court had directed the Commissioner/Secretary Social Welfare Department to provide immediately all necessary information to the Chief Secretary in respect of schemes run by Central and State Government for the benefit of the poor women of the state.
 The Court had directed the Chief Secretary to file compliance report within three months. However, Chief Secretary failed to file compliance report, thus making the Court to ask the CS to furnish the report by Tuesday positively.
