New DelhiThe Delhi High Court Tuesday refused to pass any order on a PIL seeking action against National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah over his alleged remarks on Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK).
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar directed the petitioner to approach the appropriate ministry concerned, which will decide the issue on merits.
The court was hearing a plea filed by Delhi-based Maulana Ansar Raza, who claims to be a social activist, seeking “immediate investigation” and “arrest” of the Srinagar MP alleging that he has favoured Pakistan and insulted India.
