HC allows cop’s petition on seniority benefits


Srinagar, Jan 30: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has allowed a petition seeking retrospective benefit of seniority of the petitioner as Deputy Superintendent of Police from 1997 when out of promotion was granted to him along with seven other officials. 
The Court of Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar allowed the writ petition by DySP, T Galpo,  for the benefits of seniority after hearing arguments of senior Counsel BA Bashir and government advocate Shuja Tantray representing the State.
Earlier the court transferred the petition from Jammu wing for hearing here after the petitioner’s counsel requested the court for the same. 
Bashir submitted that while other officers were given the benefits of seniority, the petitioner was denied the same on “flimsy ground” for not having five years experience at the time of    promotion.
The senior counsel drew the attention of the court to the orders by which Inspector A R Baba was given promotion within three years as DySP and subsequently within the same period as SP.
“On the same analogy Sub Inspector N P Singh was promoted as Inspector and DySP within three years only because both were working as security officers of former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah,” Bashir argued.
Allowing the petition, the court ruled that “It is a sheer discrimination which violates fundamental right of the petitioner under article 14 and court will not allow it.”
