High Court rejects plea of pellet survivors’ association


The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Tuesday rejected an application by the Association of the Pellet Survivors in which members had sought to be included as interveners in public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a ban on the pellet guns in Kashmir, The Tribune reported.

These directions were issued today by a division Bench of Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey and Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur before which the application came up for consideration today, said the report.

“During the pendency of the PIL for the decision to the extent as allowed by the Supreme Court in terms of order dated 22.07.2019, the instant application is filed seeking intervention by the Association of Pellet Survivors through its president, Aamir Ahmad Band (Puchal, Pulwama). We have heard the learned counsel for the applicant and considered the averments made in the application,” the Bench said in its orders, according to The Tribune.
