Sagar versus Mehbooba defamation case

Court gives last chance to counsels


Srinagar, Mar 10: A local court on Saturday granted last opportunity to the counsels representing PDP president Mehbooba Mufti to argue the application seeking exemption of charges in a defamation case filed by National Conference leader and minister for Rural Development Ali Muhammad Sagar against her.
 Sub Judge Passenger Tax Court Srinagar, Massarat Shaheen while hearing the counsels representing the parties, posted the matter for arguments on April 10, saying it was the last opportunity for the parties to seek time to argue the matter.
 When the matter came up for hearing on Saturday, Counsel for Mehbooba Mufti, M Amin Rathore informed the court that he was harbouring a notion that the case had been listed for April 10, saying his other senior was not present. He requested for adjournment of the case.
 Counsels for Ali Muhammad Sagar, R A Bakshi and Shuja Tantray resisted to adjourn the case but finally the court directed to post the case in April.
 Pertinently, Sagar had approached the court with the plea that Mehbooba publicly defamed him by claiming that he was carrying bogus voters from booth to booth in Srinagar in 2004 parliamentary elections.
