JAMMU, Feb 28: A Division Bench of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh High Court comprising Justice Tashi Rabstan and Justice Puneet Gupta has dismissed the appeal filed by Irfan Shafi Mir, OGW of Hizbul Mujahideen and upheld the order of trial court.
After hearing Advocate IH Bhat for the appellant whereas DSGI Vishal Sharma for the NIA and Senior AAG Monika Kohli for the UT, DB observed, “in our opinion, counsel for the appellant-accused has failed to convince this court that there is any change in circumstances regarding medical conditions of the appellant-accused especially after the passing of the order dated 06.12.2022 by the trial court, for exercising discretion for grant of short term bail/parole in favour of the appellant-accused”.
“Therefore, this court is not inclined to allow this appeal. The net result is that the appeal fails so the same is dismissed along with application(s) being bereft of merit”, the DB said. However, the DB gave liberty to the appellant-accused to approach the trial court in case of any change in circumstances of the treatment being provided to him at Agra and in that case trial court shall pass appropriate orders for providing medical facilities to the accused as and when needed in a hospital of repute.
