JAMMU, Sep 12 (JNF): Court today directed Treasury Officer Darbar Move Civil Secretariat and District Treasury Officer Srinagar not to honour the salary bills of Commissioner-Secretary Home and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) PCR Srinagar.
Principal District Judge Kathua having power of MACT Court MA Chowdhary today directed Treasury Officer Darbar Move Civil Secretariat and District Treasury Officer Srinagar not to honour the salary bills of Commissioner/Secretary Home and SSP PCR Srinagar.
While giving direction for stoppage of salary, Principal District Judge Kathua observed that it is very strange that widow and children of a policeman ASI Shuker Din have been waiting for compensation of Rs 5,75,072 alongwith interest @ 7.5% PA, upto February 13, 2017 for the last more than seven years. They were granted compensation for death of ASI Shuker Din of JKAP 9th Battalion in a Road Traffic Accident while proceeding to Rajouri on election duty on February 1, 1998. The respondents have not shown any plausible reason for non-payment of the amount and in his considered opinion coercive methods are required to be adopted for execution of the award.
Court further observed that since both the respondents are senior functionaries of the state and it may be a matter that payment would have been delayed due to officials wrangles, as such, this Tribunal restrains itself from passing orders for the civil imprisonment of both these officers. It is, however, ordered that their salaries for the month of September 2017 onwards shall not be drawn and Treasury Officer Darbar Move Civil Secretariat is directed not to honour the salary bill of Commissioner-Secretary to Government Home Department and District Treasury Officer Srinagar is directed not to honour the salary bill of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Police Control Room Srinagar, till further orders.
