Lawyer who challenged earlier directive says fresh circular is ‘contempt’ of HC orders
Re-registration of non-J&K registered vehicles…
Srinagar: Reacting to the fresh government circular on mandatory re-registration in J&K of vehicles purchased from other states, the lawyer who had challenged the earlier directive in the court Monday said that the new circular is in contempt of High Court order and that he will challenge the same by filing a contempt petition.
Advocate Zahoor, who had earlier challenged the earlier government order, said that he is going to file a contempt petition as the fresh order issued by the Transport department amounts to “contempt” of Jammu and Kashmir’s High Court judgment.
Local news agency KNO quoted the lawyer as saying that the order amounts to the contempt of the judgment passed by the double bench of the High Court on April 29 this year.
“We have gone through the order issued by the Transport department. Our team is on it, as soon as the court resumes after vacations, we will file a contempt petition,” he said.
