JAMMU: Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur on Friday quashed the detention order of Mohammad Abdullah Gujjar former Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM) terrorist.
While quashing the detention order, Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur observed that it can be seen that the detenue had never been informed of his right to make a representation against the order of detention before the detaining authority. If that be the position, then such a failure would make the order of detention invalid. Consequently, the order impugned dated May 3, 2018 is quashed. The respondents are directed to release the petitioner forthwith if not required in any other case. “Needless to say that the official respondents would be at liberty to pass a fresh order after complying with the constitutional and statutory obligations strictly in accordance with law, if need be”, the court observed.
