High Court reserves orders on Faktoo’s contempt plea

The High Court on Monday reserved its decision on a fresh contempt petition against shifting of Dr Ashiq Hussain Faktoo from Central Jail Srinagar to Udhampur Jail.

A division bench of acting Chief Justice Alok Aradhe and Justice D S Thakur reserved the judgment after hearing advocate Mian Abdul Qayoom on behalf of Faktoo as well as the government's counsel. 

Arguing the case, advocate Qayoom said the government has shifted Faktoo to Udhampur jail in violation of the High Court orders and the orders of the designated court under TADA at Jammu which in 2003 had directed state authorities to lodge the petitioner in Central Jail, Srinagar.
