J&K HC notice to Jammu admn, cops
JAMMU: The Jammu and Kashmir high court has issued notices to the administration and the police to ensure strict implementation of the ban on construction activity near an ammunition depot in Nagrota on the outskirts of this city.
The court’s notices came on Wednesday after the Army moved the court against construction on land owned by speaker Nirmal Singh’s wife Mamta Singh.
The army has demanded immediate halt to the construction work citing security reasons.
“There is non-cooperation on the part of the police and the civilian administration in not implementing the order on the ban and allowing the construction to go on,” said lawyer Ajay Sharma, representing the army in the case. The army, he said, has also sought initiation of contempt proceedings.
After hearing Sharma, justice Janak Raj Kotwal issued notice to senior officials of the administration and the Jammu SPS to file a compliance report by May 30.PTI
