Srinagar: The J&K High Court on Thursday directed state counsel to provide names and designation of officials who suspended Dr Ahanger from the post of Director SKIMS by March 16.
The court sought explanation from government on why Dr A G Ahanger was not allowed to resume his duties as director SKIMS despite court staying his relieving order.
Directing the government to file a statement of facts to a contempt petition filed by Dr Ahanger, Justice M K Hanjura remarked that the court orders have been flouted with impunity by the state.
Previously, the court had stayed the government order relieving Dr Ahangar as director. Dr Ahangar filed contempt petition against GR Mir, presently posted as Additional Secretary to the Government, General Administration Department, Civil Secretariat Jammu.
Dr Ahanagar joined the duties back as Director SKIIMS on 11-January 2018 but was shown door by appointing doctor Omar at his place. The next day a meeting of the governing body was called in Jammu. Being the member secretary of the governing body, Dr. Ahangar flew to Jammu on the same day but he was not allowed to participate in the meeting. Instead Prof. Omar Javeed Shah was allowed to participate as a member secretary where various decision have been taken.
