Proposal for Fast Track Courts trashed, lakhs of cases pile up for years

Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 21: According justice to the deprived has been a least of all priorities for the elected regimes in Jammu and Kashmir as cases, with each passing year, kept piling up, keeping the maxim of 'justice delayed is justice denied' alive and kicking.
Administrative sources revealed to Early Times that the previous dispensation took no serious measures in establishing fast track courts in the state so that justice to the destitute could have been provided sans any delay.
Earlier records in possession inform that as far as the nature of criminal cases in the state of Jammu and Kashmir is concerned, there are 5244 such cases yet to be heard in the state.
In the high court of Jammu and Kashmir, there were around eighty six thousand cases pending with the verdict yet to come.In the lower courts of Jammu and Kashmir, there were around one lakh cases of criminal nature pending.
The details have informed further that there are around 70,000 civil cases whose verdict was yet to be passed by the honorable judges here.
As there were no fast track court functional in the state of Jammu and Kashmir except for the five existing regular courts of additional district and sessions which were earmarked as fast track court by the high court earlier. The courts were given the authority so that the cases against the women could be heard on the fast track basis.
Sources informed that the government here in the past has received a proposal by the hight court regarding the creation of eight fast track courts of the rank of district and sessions judge and 10 fast track courts of the rank of civil judge senior division. "There was no further step taken by the state government over the recommendations made by the high court. Rather we can say that the recommendation was thrown in the back burner by the previous coalition government. If the fast track courts would have been established in the state of Jammu and Kashmir then, the situation would have been different today. The pending cases could have been disposed and peoples' sufferings mitigated to the large extent," sources told Early Times.
Also contrary to the claims of the state authorities that the government was committed to provide justice to the masses at door steps and that by virtue of Jammu and Kashmir Dehi Adalat act, 2013, it is 'contemplating' to create 22 dehi adalats in the state with at least one in a district that too at a block level, no measure development is seen so far in the state over the issue.
Also, as the civil society groups pitched for benches of high court to remain available at remote places other than the capital cities of the state in view of the difficult topography at south, north and Ladakh areas in Kashmir division and Chenab valley, Poonch, Rajouri and Kathua in Jammu, the Omar Government categorically rejected the proposal with no reason in hand.
