High Court spots ‘shortcomings’ in Govt’s compliance report
‘It Does Not Meet Requirements Of Earlier Court Order’
Rehabilitation of Poor Girls
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Feb 5: Unsatisfied with the latest compliance report of the state government on rehabilitation of poor girls in Jammu and Kashmir, the High Court once again directed the government to file a new report.
Passing its orders on a Public Interest Litigation, a division bench of the High Court comprising Justice JP Singh and Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar granted four weeks to the Chief Secretary to file a “comprehensive compliance report” regarding implementation of court directions on the steps taken by the government to improve condition of poor girls in the State.
Finding loopholes in the government’s latest compliance report, the court said “it does not meet the requirements of the order passed by it earlier.”
The court made Additional Advocate General JA Kawoosa aware of the shortcomings of the report. Kawoosa later sought more time after which the court granted him four weeks to file the new compliance report.
Amicus Curiae Bashir Ahmad Bashir while arguing said that the government’s ‘indolence’ to file a comprehensive report in the case “speaks volumes about the mess up which is reigning supreme in the state.”
The Court had passed the observations in a case titled Muhammad Amin Beigh v/s State and others. The District Magistrate Srinagar had slapped detention order under Public Safety Act (PSA) on Beigh for allegedly exploiting girls under the garb of providing them jobs. Beigh had challenged the order in the High Court.
However, the Court dismissed his plea and subsequently passed series of directions to the government asking it to take steps to ensure rehabilitation of poor girls in the State.
