HC stays reinstatement of terminated doctor

The High Court, on Monday, stayed the judgement of its single bench about the reinstatement of a doctor, who was terminated by the government in 2015.

The doctor was among other 63 government officials, that included chief engineers, KAS, doctors, who were given compulsory retirement in June 2015 during the regime of late Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. This order was followed due to allegations of corruption proved against them by the heads of their departments and later proved by a vigilance commission.

The aggrieved officers had filed writ petitions in the High Court challenging the order. The court had ordered reinstatement of the six officials while petitions of other were pending in the High Courts.

The government has filed Letter Patents Appeal (LPA) through its Advocate General, Jahangir Iqbal Ganaie, challenging the single bench decision after which the division bench stayed the order.
