Ministerís counsel seeks more time
CONTEMPT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST TAJ
Srinagar, Jan 4: The counsel for the Minister for PHE and Flood Control Taj Mohiuddin on Friday sought more time from the State Accountability Commission for seeking instructions from the Minister over their further course of action in the case.
Shah Muhammad Choudary representing Taj today appeared before the SAC and submitted before the full bench of the Commission, comprising Justice(retd) YP Nagrota and Justice(retd) Hakim Imtiyaz Hussain, to give him more time to seek instructions from the Minister, who has been charged of committing contempt of the Commission.
The Commission accepted the plea and scheduled the next date of hearing for February 4. On December 24 last year, the Commission while initiating the contempt proceedings against the Minister has directed him to file his statement of defense, if any, on January 4, 2013.
Taj has been charged with contempt of the Commission for making false claims that the anti- graft body had given him clean chit in alleged forest land grab case.
Taj is mired in controversies since October this year after Legislative Council (LC) Chairman Amrit Malhotra constituted a House Panel to inquire into the allegations of forest land grab against him.
