JK Admin terminates judge over use of ‘fake document’ to get in service

Srinagar: The administration of Jammu and Kashmir has terminated a judge appointed as a judicial officer on the basis of fake documentation in the year 2000.

On the recommendations of JK High court, the Lieutenant Governor has issued the termination for Mohammad Yousuf Allai, civil judge (Jr Division)/Munsiff (under suspension) with immediate effect.

It was revealed that Allai is a resident of village Mirgund tehsil but claimed to have shifted to backward village Shilvat of tehsil Sonawari to which effect a certificate is claimed to have been issued by tehsildar Sonawari on 3-12-1996 in terms of SRO-126 of 1994.

According to the SRO, any person residing in the backward area for 15 years could claim the benefit of being a resident of the backward area.

In contradiction to this report, the inquiry reveals that Muhammad Sadeeq Ganie, chowkidar of Rakshilvat, stated that none Muhammad Yosouf Allai resides or ever resided in the said village.

“Ghulam Hassan, the Lumberdar of the village, Rakhshilvat, too has clearly stated that neither he had ever seen the person, Mohammad Yosouf Allai nor any such person resides in village Rakhshilvat,” reads the inquiry report.

The report added: “Patwari Abdul Gani Baba has also stated that Muhammad Yosouf Allai did not reside in village Rakhshilvat when he was posted as Patwari of that village.”
