Srinagar, November 03: The Division Bench of Justice Mohammad Yaqoob Mir and Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey issued notice to Ministry of Home Affairs, Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary Home Department and DGP for filing of objections on appointment of Dr. S.P. Vaid as DGP in a writ filed by DG Prisons, SK Misra.
Misra challenged order of appointment of Vaid as DGP before Central Administrative Tribunal on the ground that the order of appointment of Vaid as DGP is in violation of Business Rules as also against the Supreme Court judgment. It had been submitted in writ that the appointment has been made without considering the other eligible candidates and also by selecting a person who was ineligible for being selected as DGP.
It has been added that Vaid was only empanelled as Inspector General of Police by the Ministry of Home Affairs on the said date and was junior to him.
He alleged that since the authorities as Chief Secretary and Principal Home Secretary have committed willful breach of law laid down by Apex Court in Prakash Singh’s case as such contempt proceedings be initiated against them so as to punish them under law.
