Srinagar Court Issues Bailable Warrant Against 6 LAWDA Officials for Non-Compliance of Court Order

A local court in Srinagar has issued bailable warrant against six officials of Lakes and Waterways Development Authority for non-compliance of a court order.

In a small causes court in Srinagar presided by Shri Fayaz Ahmed Qureshi, bailable warrants against the officials were issued after advocate Shahzad Saleem submitted that the LAWDA officials have ‘disrespected’ the court order.

It was pleaded by the advocates that the LAWDA officials are the highly influential persons and do not regard the law of the land.

Previously also, the court had directed LAWDA to de-seal a restaurant situated at Makkai Point in Srinagar which the plaintiff failed to comply with. 

It was also contested that even after having the knowledge of the lawful orders of the court, the officials neither de-sealed the property nor didthey disallow the plaintiff to continue his business as directed by the bench.

It was pleaded that the officials have a legal obligation to comply with the directions of the court in letter and spirit and it is unacceptable that the officials are contravening the direct orders of the court making it illegal and applicable in the eyes of law.

Now, after hearing the situation of the contempt of court, the court has issued bailable warrants against six officials of Lakes and Waterways Development Authority.
