Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 7: Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur quashed the detention order of Mohd. Abdullah Gujjar ormer Harkat-ul- Mujahideen (HuM) militant.
While quashing the detention order, Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur observed that it can be seen that the detenue had never been informed of his right to make a representation against the order of detention before the detaining authority. "If that be the position, then such a failure would make the order of detention invalid.
Consequently, the order impugned dated 3.5.2018 is quashed. The respondents are directed to release the petitioner forthwith if not required in any other case" the court observed.
