Kulgam 25 December (KNB): The High Court Bar Association has condemned the physical assault on Advocate Parvaiz Ahmad Malik of District Court Kulgam by the ACR Kulgam, Imtiyaz Hussain, and his office clerks at D.C. office Kulgam.
As per the lawyers, the ACR Kulgam is abusing his powers and derailed registration of legal documents that action was time and again legally objected by the lawyers.
Later ACR Kulgam retained the said advocate’s document for more than two months and refused to register it for unknown reasons which led to the exchange of legal arguments between the said advocate and ACR Kulgam.
The concerned ACR has been abusing his powers and assaulting the advocate Parvaiz Ahmad Malik physically which has inflicted injuries on the said advocate. Malik was also put behind bars by the ACR’s misusing of police power.
Against these atrocities committed on Malik and unbearable behaviour of ACR, the members of Bar Association Kulgam have registered a strong protest against the physical assault on the lawyer and sought appropriate action against him.
“We feel it appropriate that proper vigilance deserves to be ensued to check the corrupt practices during the course of registration of documents by the revenue authorities across J&K,” the J&K High Court Bar Association comments.
However, the J&K High Court Bar Association while expressing solidarity with the members of Bar Association Kulgam has advised the Bar Association Kulgam to file a criminal complaint against the erring ACR and his staff in the Court of Law to seek justice for the victim lawyer. (KNB)
