HC directive in security of court, retd judges
2/17/2017 10:42:57 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 17: A high court division bench of Chief Justice N Paul Vasanthakumar and Justice Tashi Rabstan, today said that on the question of providing security to retired Chief Justices, high court judges and advocate generals, who also deal with militancy related cases, the state 'cannot be expected to have the clumsy plea of dearth of manpower'.
The bench, while dismissing the review application, observed that the state 'has filed the present application, seeking review of these directions mainly on the plea that providing 1-4 security guards in three shifts of eight hours at the residence of each former Chief Justice and judges of high court would mean the that government has to increase the strength of force by three times, which is not only highly impracticable, but also not in consonance with the guidelines of Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, as laid down in the Yellow Book'.
The state is also seeking review of a direction relating to extending of security cover to the retired district and sessions judges for one year after retirement, besides providing 1-3 security guards round the clock at the residences of former advocate generals of the state on the plea of dearth of manpower.
The bench, after hearing the two sides, dismissed the review application and said 'it seems as if the state has misconstrued the direction in respect of providing of 1-4 security guards in three shifts of eight hours each at the residences of each former Chief Justice and judges of high court. It simply meant four constables or selection grade constables headed by one incharge head constable and they have to perform their duties on shift basis and nothing else. The direction never meant to depute 15 guards at their residences. Similar was the direction in respect of ex-advocate generals'.
The bench said 'so far as providing of security cover to the retired district and sessions judges is concerned, we have only directed for providing security cover not on permanent basis, but just for a period of one year on retirement and thereafter their security cover would be as per the report of Security Review Coordination Committee'.
With these observations, the bench dismissed the review application.
In another application, the bench observed that in terms of the March 17, 2016 order, respondents had not filed the status report with regard to installation of remaining CCTV cameras in and around the high court complexes in Jammu and Srinagar as well as district court complex at Janipura here. It was submitted that Metal Detector Machines had been installed only at one entry point of the buildings of District Court Complex, whereas there were no Metal Detector Machines at other entry points of the building.
The bench said that since it was not possible to install Metal Detector Machines at every entry point of each building of District Court Complex, the respondents must evolve a mechanism to encircle all the buildings as well as entry points into one circle and install machines at two or three main entry points of the circle. "At every such point, install three machines, one for advocates and staff on production of identity cards and the other two for litigants and bar visitors.
