DB’s concern over delay in setting up of organ transplant centre

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Dec 8: In a Public Interest Litigation filed by Smile Social Youth Club through its President Matloob Saleem Qureshi raising an important issue of organ transplant, Division Bench of State High Court comprising Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Tashi Rabstan has observed that none has bothered to examine the lack of the legislative regime which is essential for setting up the centres.
“As a result thereof not even a single organ transplant centre has been established in the State. This critical aspect needs immediate consideration of the law makers”, the DB said and directed that the order be placed before the Chief Secretary for immediate consideration.
