‘Ensure’ Detained Youth Take Exam: High Court 

SRINAGAR — The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Friday directed authorities to ensure the appearance of the detained youth from Baramulla, Shoib Ramzan Tantray, in the examination of B.G 4th Semester, commencing November 1 at Degree College Baramulla as per the roll number and admit card allotted to him.  

“The respondent Jail Authority shall ensure the appearance of the detenu (Shoib Ramzan Tantray) in the examination of B.G 4th Semester commencing 01.11.2018 at Degree College Baramulla as per the roll number and admit card allotted to the detenu,” a bench of Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey said. 

The court also directed that, in view of the urgency, copy of the order be furnished to the youth’s counsel under the seal and signature of the Bench Secretary.

Meanwhile, the court quashed detention order (no. 200/DMB/PSA/2018 dated 31.03.2018) passed by District Magistrate, Baramulla, whereunder detainee Bashir Ahmad Sualiah son of Late Ghulam Mohammad Sualiah of Mohalla Jadeed Baramulla, District Baramulla.  

The main ground of attack projected by petitioner against the detention in question was that grounds of detention were not duly communicated to him, which prevented him from making an effective representation against the impugned detention order and thereby he was deprived of an important constitutional right, and that the detaining authority did not apply mind while passing the detention order and has not revealed as to on what materials he assumed subjective satisfaction regarding necessity of having the subject detained even while he was already ordered to be set at liberty under the court orders.
