FIR won’t be allowed against NC MLC: Chairman LC

Jammu: Chairman Legislative Council Haji Inayat Ali Monday assured the members of the legislative council that FIR won’t be lodged against sitting MLC Shawkat Hussain Ganaie on the directions of a Jammu court over his remarks on Burhan Wani, the slain Hizb Commander.
Announcing the decision to pacify the NC MLCs, the chairman said FIR can’t be lodged against any lawmaker on a remark he or she makes in the house. He agreed with the members that the decision of the court is tantamount to questioning the credibility and the respect of the legislative council.
He also said that the concerned MLC is at liberty to prove a privilege motion against anyone involved in filing the petition before a local court in Jammu on which the court directed Police to file FIR against the MLC. KNS
