JAMMU, Dec 6 (JNF): A Division Bench of State High Court comprising Justice Mohammed Yaqoob Mir and Justice Ali Mohammed Magrey, while disposing of a bunch of petitions, Wednesday appointed retired DIG Ashiq Hussain Bukhari as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) and Justice (retired) Syed Bashir-ud-Din as Ombudsman.
“Bukhari, after approval of the Committee of Administrators, shall associate some reliable undisputed members of the Working Committee who have not incurred disqualification, for running the affairs of JKCA under the supervision and control of Committee of Administrators till rules are amended and elections are held,” directed the Division Bench.
Justice Syed Bashir-ud-din as ombudsman will undertake the task of settling the disputes of 12 clubs and also other disputes of the Association so as to pave a way for implementing directions of the Supreme Court in line with recommendations of the Lodha Committee, the Division Bench further held.
“For settlement of disputes among 12 clubs and other disputes of the Association, there is a requirement of appointing ombudsman. Single Judge has given the power to the two appointed Administrators to appoint an ombudsman,” the Division Bench observed and added, “which in our view is not apposite.” Division Bench further said, “The administrators cannot appoint ombudsman and Ombudsman was required to be appointed by the Association but in the stated background.”
While appointing Justice Syed Bashir-ud-din as ombudsman for resolving all the disputes after giving hearing to all concerned, the Division Bench held, “He shall undertake the task of settling the disputes of 12 clubs and also other disputes of the Association so as to pave a way for implementing directions of the Supreme court in line with recommendations of the Lodha Committee. The expenditure shall be at par with administrators. The monthly remuneration, allowances and other conditions during such term in office as an ombudsman shall be the same as that of a Judge of the High Court, reduced by the amount of the pension received by him and by the portion of the commuted value of the portion of such pension, if received by him.”
Division Bench observed, “The directions issued by Single Judge it is made clear that the direction shall operate provided the amount seized by police has not been already released in favour of JKCA, in case released, whatever amount available with the Association shall be dealt with by Chief Executive Officer under the instructions and directions of the Committee of Administrators.”
