Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Nov 11: Special Judge Anti-corruption Kashmir RN Wattal rejected the J&K Bank plea regarding releasing of files seized by Anti-corruption Bureau Kashmir in a raid laid down on 8th of June 2019 in case registered under FIR No.10/2019.
In the application filed by Jammu and Kashmir Bank Ltd Corporate Headquarters Srinagar through its Executive Law, Peerzada Umer Amin seeking the release of files seized by non-applicant in a raid laid down on 08-062019 in case registered under FIR No.10/2019. The grounds projected for release of these files are that the non-applicant during raid in the office of Asif Raja the Senior Executive Recruitment of the applicant bank seized number of files from his custody. Some of the files pertain to various processes undertaken by the applicant bank, and some of these files relate to bank employees compassionate cases and some files relate to personal files of left out candidates who have been appointed as Banking Associates (Contractual) in the month of October 2018. These files do not pertain to the recruitment of BAT and ABA's which are under investigation. The applicant craves leave of this court to release the said file for completion of process undertaken by the applicant bank. The application is purely legal and if allowed would advance the cause of justice.
Special Judge Anticorruption Kashmir RN Wattal observed that the investigation of the case is in its culminating stage and the files that are sought to be released are proximately related to the case and are required by the investigating agencies for logical conclusion of the case. The release of these files at this stage would defeat the very purporse of the investigation. Moreover, said FIR pertains to illegal appointment scam and exchange of huge amount is alleged to have been misappropriated in the Jammu and Kashmir Bank. The case is very sensitive in its nature, has assumed public importance and involvement of big fishes in the case is still under investigation. The stage is not ripe for the release and it would not be appropriate to invoke the jurisdiction vested in court for releasing the files seized by ACB (K). Further the release of these files at this stage shall hamper the investigation of the case.
Court further observed that the stage of moving the instant application is premature and cannot be considered in light of sensitivity of the case and stage of investigation. With these observations, the application being devoid of any merit or substance is dismissed at this stage. —JNF
