JAMMU, July 22: City Judge Jammu M S Manhas today stayed the election of Forest Minister Lal Singh’s wife Kanta Andotra as President of Jammu and Kashmir Hockey Association.

“From the perusal of material/documents on record and the averments made in the plaint, it reveals that applicants/plaintiffs have succeeded to make out a prima facie case in their favour and balance of convenience also lies in favour of the applicants/plaintiffs”, City Judge said.
“Notice is dispensed in view of the emergency urged by the counsel for applicants/plaintiffs. In order to protect the applicant/plaintiff from irreparable loss/injury and in order to preserve the suit property, the illegal election of non-applicants/defendants as President, General Secretary, Senior Vice President and Vice Presidents is stayed till next date of hearing”, the court said.
