PIL seeks disposal of crime connected vehicles in 1 week

A division bench of Jammu and Kashmir high court  today sought objections from the state in a Public Interest Litigation(PIL) seeking disposal of applications for release of vehicles connected with certain offences.  

The PIL has been filed by Achyut Dubey – a practicing lawyer, seeking direction to respondents to ensure that applications for disposal of all the vehicles in custody of the police in the State of Jammu and Kashmir in connection with any offence for more than a week, except the vehicles in connection with which release applications filed before the concerned Court have already been decided, are made by the concerned SHOs/IOs concerned before the appropriate Court.

A Division Bench of State High Court Comprising Justice Alok Aradhe and Justice Sanjeev Kumar day granted six week time to file preliminary objections and counter affidavit.

During the course of hearing Advocate Achyut Dubey submitted that when one moves along the national highway NH44/NH1A from Jammu to Srinagar or State highways, more particularly, when one passes by the police stations, police posts and the police Nakas anywhere in the State, it is quite common to find scores and scores of vehicles, some of them damaged in accident and some seized in various other types of crimes, laying there in dilapidated condition, clearly suggesting that they have been there for quite some time, may be months or years together.
