Re-Registration of non JK registered vehicles: Fresh order in contempt of the High Court Orders: Adv Zahoor

Says will file Contempt petition to challenge order

SRINAGAR, June 14: After the Government issued the fresh orders for the re-registration of non-JK registered vehicles, Advocate Zahoor Ahmad Monday said that the new order is in contempt of HC order and that he will challenge the same by filing contempt petition.

Advocate Zahoor, who had earlier challenged the government order, said that he through his lawyer 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.

Speaking to news agency—, Advocate Zahoor said that the order amounts to the contempt of the double bench high court judgement, as the fresh circular issued by the transport department is referring to the judgment passed by the Double Bench of Jammu and Kashmir High Court on 29 April of this year, but the judgment passed have not been mentioned in the fresh order issued by the Transport department, which directly amounts to the contempt of the court orders.

“We have gone through the order issued by the Transport department. Our team is on it, since there are vacations as soon as the court fully resumes, and we are going to file a contempt petition”, he said.

Pertinently, RTO Kashmir had issued the circular on March 27, directing the vehicle owners who had purchased the Non JK number registered vehicles to apply for new registration marks as per the provisions of section 47/50 of motor vehicle act 1988 read with the rule 54 of central motor vehicle act 1989, within a time frame of 15 days.

The sanctity of the order was challenged by the Petitioner Zahoor Ahmad through his council in Jammu and Kashmir High Court, after which the case was referred to the Double Bench of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, and 28 page judgement in the petition was pronounced on April 29—(KNO)
