Srinagar: The High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh has expressed displeasure over the power outage in the court complex and requested the Chief Secretary to find a permanent solution.

Justice Atul Sreedharan and Justice Ms Moksha Khajuria Kazmi observed that during court hours the High Court has suffered a complete power failure.

The generator is also not working. There are no lights. The air heating unit (AHU) is also not functional. It is pathetic and unbelievable that this is the condition of the Srinagar Wing of the High Court of High Court of J&K and Ladakh.

The Court further observed that the power failure has taken place at about 09:45 am and had still not been restored when this order was passed at about 11.28 am. The matter has gone from bad to worse. There is a permanent solution that is required.

“This Court requests the Chief Secretary of the Union Territory to pass necessary orders to solve this problem forthwith.

The solution may vary from having a separate power line to the High Court which does not experience any downtime and also supported by generators of such capacity which can power the entire High Court and also the air heating unit without interruption in the event of the dedicated power supply to the High Court fails.
