Early Times Report

JAMMU, Feb 22: Special Judge Anticorruption Kashmir R N Wattal rejected the plea of J&K Bank for releasing of documents which were seized by the anti-corruption bureau in appointment scam.
The court observed that the police report reveals that the instant case was registered at police Station ACB Kashmir on 08-06-2019 on a Photostat e-mail forwarded by ACB Hqrs J&K for appropriate action bearing the name of the complainant/sender as Syed Kounser Baihaqi D/o Ghulam Mohammad Baihaqi R/o Dandoosa on the allegations that back-door appointments (banking Attendants and assistant banking associates) were made in the bank.
Since 2014, more than 3000 illegal appointments have been made in above mentioned cadre throwing all the norms to the winds by appointing PDP Party workers in the concerned Bank, hundreds of sweepers are working in different branches from past 10 years on meager pay, but were never regularized due to financial constraints, on registration of FIR search warrants was obtained from the court of learned CJM Srinagar to search and seize the relevant record/documents related to illegal and fraudulent appointments under investigation, accordingly the personal files of the suspected illegal appointees mentioned in the complaint from HRD Section of J&K Bank, during investigation, Haameem Nusrat niece of Ex-Chairman Pervaiz Ahmad Nengroo was also appointed without following due procedure, temporary engagement files/ orders/ re-engagement/ orders and the regularizations/ orders of the beneficiaries i.e., ABA's/BAS were seized from Corporate office of J&K Bank.
The investigation concluded with establishment of the offences in terms of Section 5(2) of P.C. Act and Section 120-B RPC against the accused officers/officials and beneficiaries, the sanction for launching prosecution under section 6 of J&K P.C. Act against in-service officers/officials of the Bank was obtained from the competent authority and four challans in case FIR No.10/2019 has been produced before the court, the seized relevant record in the instant case was filed before the court and same is lying with the custody of this court, another case under FIR No.01/2020 has been recently registered in P/S ACBK pertaining to the rest illegal appointments w.e.f the year 2009, and the record seized in case FIR No.10/2019 is required in the investigation of case under FIR No.01/2020 for appropriate and logical disposal of the case.
The grounds projected for the release in application is to record the annual performance and release of increments and other service conditions of these appointees. The appointees have not been recruited by following due recruitment process i.e, publication of recruitment notification, in the Newspapers of greater circulation for inviting applications from deserving candidates for the posts of Assistant Banking Associates and Banking Attendants in the Bank, holding of written test, calling the candidates who qualified the written test in the ratio of 1:3 for interview, framing of merit list and selection list and its subsequent publication.
Backdoor appointments at the behest of power source or otherwise and recruitment according to rules are mutually antagonistic and strange bed partners. They can't exist in same sheath and the former is in negation of a fair play however the latter are products of order and regularity. With these observations Court dismissed the application filed by JK Bank.
