Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir High Court Friday directed the Bar Council of India to consider the representation of Kashmiri Lawyers to get an examination centre established in Kashmir Valley for the ‘All India Bar Examination.
Pertinently, ‘All India Bar Examination’ is being conducted with no examination centre in Kashmir capital Srinagar. The aspirants are decrying injustice, appealing the Bar Council to set up an examination centre somewhere in Srinagar.
Sources said that in this regard Advocate Parvaiz Lone filed a writ petition before J&K High Court seeking directions for Chairman Bar Council of India to establish Examination Centre for Kashmir Division in Srinagar. The petitioner in his petition submitted that it is very hectic and undesirable for Kashmiri aspirants to visit Jammu.
Justice Sanjeev Kumar after hearing the arguments of Advocate Parvaiz Lone directed Chairman Bar Counsel of India to consider the representation and decide the same before the commencement of this examination.
