Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 21: Division Bench of the State High Court comprising Chief Justice Bader Durrez Ahmed and Justice Sanjeev Kumar in the open court directed the Competent Authority/Commissioner- Secretary to Govt. of J&K, Housing and Urban Development Department to post Aftab Rashid Pandit the then DGM Unit-II J&K Housing Board against any other equivalent post without prejudice /uninfluenced by the observations made by the Division Bench in its order dated September, 11, 2017 wherein the Commissioner/Secretary to Govt. of J&K, H&UDD was directed to take steps for posting of the then MD Ram Pal Sharma and Aftab Rashid Pandit DGM Unit-II to some other posts of their grade/cadre in some other Department till the completion of Departmental Enquiry against them.
Today when this much publicized Public Interest Litigation came up for hearing Senior Advocate Riaz Jan with Advocate Vikas Magotra appearing for Aftab Rashid Pandit informed the Division Bench that the true facts were not brought to the notice of the Division Bench when order dated September, 11, 2017 was passed which has caused great prejudice to the applicant.
Senior Advocate Riaz Jan further submitted that by virtue of order dated September, 11, 2017 the applicant was uprooted from J&K Housing Board and his image in the society was also tarnished as the order shifting him was stigmatic and ignominious.
Advocates for the petition submitted that in view of the serious lapses and creation of liabilities worth Rs.27.00 crores Aftab Rashid Pandit does not deserve to be posted in J&K Housing Board as he will indulge in similar activities as previously in league with the then MD Ram Pal Sharma he executed the works on the verbal directions of the then Minister who was nursing his political constituency.
After heated arguments from both the sides the Division Bench headed by Chief Justice Bader Durrez Ahmed in the open court directed the Competent Authority/Commissioner-Secretary to Govt. of J&K, Housing and Urban Development Department to post Aftab Rashid Pandit the then DGM Unit-II J&K Housing Board against any other equivalent post without prejudice/uninfluenced by the observations made by the Division Bench in its order dated September, 11, 2017.
