JAMMU: Justice M.K Hanjura of J&K High Court Jammu Wing on Saturday dismissed the plea of Mohammad Mehraj-ud-din Khan (KAS), Commissioner Secretary to the Government, ARI and Trainings Department challenging quashment of FIR registered by the Crime Branch.
The court observed that petitioner has assailed the defensibility of the FIR registered against him on various counts which can be decided and determined on the culmination of the investigation of the case.
“The allegations leveled against the petitioner, as is palpable from the perusal of the FIR, appear to be serious in nature, inasmuch as, it is stated that he tampered the date of birth in his service record with the aim and object to stay in the government service for a longer period. The mandate of law justifies that the matter should be investigated into its entirety without aborting it midway. It is only after the conclusion of the investigation of the case that a definite opinion can be framed in light of the grounds agitated and urged by the petitioner in this petition. It will be too early in the day to comment as to which offence is, and which is not, made out in the case. Any comment on that count is not warranted to be made at this stage. It can be seen only after a full dressed investigation of the case”, the court observed adding that FIR in a case like the present one cannot be quashed promptly without allowing the Investigating Agency to probe the case appropriately. With these observations, the court dismissed the petition.
