DB directive in PIL regarding illegal religious structures

Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Mar 4: In a suo-moto Public Interest Litigation (PIL) regarding illegal religious structures on public land, a Division Bench of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh High Court comprising Chief Justice N Kotiswar Singh and Justice Wasim Sadiq Nargal said that in terms of the directions of the Supreme Court the administration is supposed to constitute a committee to examine these issues.
The DB directed that a copy of constitution of the committee be placed before this court on the next date of hearing as non-constitution of committee to consider the issues relating to unauthorized structures including religious structures in terms of the directions passed by the Supreme Court would tantamount to disobeying the order of the Apex Court which we have been directed to monitor.
