Jammu and Kashmir High Court today condoled the demise of former Chief Justice of J&K and former Chief Justice of India, Justice A S Anand.
The Chief Justice Badar Durrez Ahmed, Justices Muhammad Yaqoob Mir, Alok Aradhe, Dhiraj Singh Thakur, Tashi Rabstan, Sanjeev Kumar, and judicial officers and senior advocates were present at the condolence meeting convened here today to remember the services of the late legal luminary, a statement here said.
The Chief justice said that Justice Anand will be always remembered for his services rendered in the judicial field. "Dr Anand in his long career as a judge has delivered several landmark judgements and displayed deep concern towards human rights and constitutional values," he added.
"We have assembled here to condole his death with the legal fraternity, his family and people of Jammu & Kashmir in general," the Chief Justice said.
He said Justice Anand contributed many articles in the field of law and authored several books including the "The constitution of J&K its Development and Comments", which is an essential read for anyone venturing to practice in the field of law.
While expressing sympathies with the bereaved family, the participants observed two-minute silence as a mark of respect to the departed soul and prayed for his eternal peace.
