SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir High Court has issued a notice to J&K Cricket Association on a plea, seeking a direction to the cricket governing body in J&K to bar it from going ahead with the elections.
The plea, filed by one Iqbal Ahmad Shah, also seeks direction to forebear the JKCA from changing its constitution.
As per news agency GNS, a division bench of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Puneet Gupta sought the JKCA’s reply by October 7.
Advocate Syed Faisal Qadri who represents JKCA informed the court that the elections to District Associations have already been conducted except for District Association Samba and there is no proposal for the notification regarding holding of elections to the JKCA.
Senior counsel R A Jan and advocate Moshin Qadri, representing Iqbal Ahmad Shah, submitted that the entire action of holding the election to District Associations was contrary to law.
“Learned counsels who want to file their responses are at liberty to do so before the next date of hearing,” the court said and posted it on October 7.
