Mehboob Mufti’s Detention Order Based On Subjective Satisfaction Of Detaining Authority Cannot Be A Matter Of Judicial Review: J&K Admin. Tells SC

He submitted that the assertion that the Detenu had been in custody for the past six months, had no access to any form of public speech and expression and therefore there could be no reasons/ material to come to a conclusion that the Detenu may act in any manner which is prejudicial to maintenance of public order is “fallacious”. He said, “It is usually from prior events showing tendencies or inclinations of a person a decision can be taken by the Detaining Authority regarding the likelihood of the said person, in the future, acting in a manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order.” The submission has been made in a counter affidavit filed in response to the Habeas Corpus plea filed by Mufti’s daughter, Iltija. Recently, Iltija had filed an application before the Top Court, seeking to include grounds of challenge and additional prayers for challenging the orders of confirmation, dated February 26, 2020 and subsequent extensions, dated May 5, 2020 and July 31, 2020 of the Detention orders impugned in the Habeas Corpus Plea. Refuting the same, the Magistrate has submitted that an “assertion of the Detenu that merely due to the efflux of time, due to the Detenu being in custody u/s 107 of the Cr.P.C., there exist no material justifying the apprehension of public order being affected, is ex-facie erroneous.” The matter was heard today by a bench of Justices SK Kaul & Hrishikesh Roy who sked Solicitor General to get instructions in the matter. “How Long This Detention Will Continue?”:SC Asks SG To Get Instructions On Plea Challenging Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti’s Detention In the main plea, Iltija had contended that the grounds for her mother’s detention were vague and stale. Refuting the same, the Magistrate submitted, “the grounds of detention and the dossier clearly indicate that the there exists a live and proximate link in the events that occurred in the past, the activities of the Detenu and the possibility of such activities being prejudicial to maintenance of public order. It is submitted that it is trite law that the past conduct or antecedent history of a person can appropriately be taken into account in making a detention order.” Iltija had also submitted that one of the reasons cited in the impugned dossier was that Mufti had opposed the abrogation of Article 370 as unconstitutional. This, she asserted, clearly amounted to punishing and preventing “legitimate expression”. The Magistrate however contended that Mufti made multiple statements, which are also in public domain, “clearly inciting violence” in the eventuality of any decision being taken regarding Article 370. He submitted that the J&K Government had confirmed Mufti’s detention after duly following the procedure laid down under the PSA. He informed the Court that he carefully perused all the incriminating materials against Mufti and after applying his mind thereto, recorded a satisfaction over the necessity to detain her. Subsequently, the detention order, along with the Grounds of Detention and the relevant material thereof were referred to the Advisory Board, consisting of a retired High Court Judge and two Principal District & Sessions Judges, for its opinion, which later confirmed the order. In this backdrop the Magistrate has submitted that the Court cannot on a review of the grounds for detention, substitute its own opinion for that of the authority. He relied on the Supreme Court’s verdict in State of Maharashtra v. Bhimrao Punjabrao, (2008) 3 SCC 613, where it was held that, “the matters which have to be considered by the detaining authority are not matters susceptible of objective determination and their determination is, therefore, deliberately and advisedly left by the legislature to the subjective satisfaction of the detaining authority which by reason of its special position, experience and expertise would be best fitted to decide them.” Inter alia, the Magistrate questioned the maintainability of the habeas corpus plea inasmuch as he submitted that the Petitioner had bypassed the effective alternative remedy that is available under the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act, 1978 itself, of filing a representation before the Government. Further, he submitted that if the Petitioner sought to invoke the writ jurisdiction, she ought to have approached the J&K High Court first, which is fully functional. Reliance was placed on Union of India v. Paul Manickam, (2003) 8 SCC 342, where it was held: “It is appropriate that the High Court concerned under whose jurisdiction the order of detention has been passed by the State Government or Union Territory should be approached first. In order to invoke the jurisdiction under Article 32 of the Constitution to approach this Court directly, it has to be shown by the petitioner as to why the High Court has not been approached, could not be approached or it is futile to approach the High Court.” The matter is now listed for hearing on October 15.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Proving that HR can make a difference

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Proving that HR can make a differenceOn 11 Nov 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. TheWork Foundation has come up with a groundbreaking report that demonstrates howHR contributes to the strategic goals of the organisation. Michael MillarreportsHRhas long argued that it should take a strategic role in business and now TheWork Foundation claims to have the statistics to prove it.Froman exhaustive study, including independent research of 1,000 UK chiefexecutives, The Work Foundation has identified five key areas of business,which have to be managed if companies hope to enjoy high-productivity.Theresearchers claim this gives HR the opportunity to go beyond the role ofinternal regulator and will enable it to use this hard evidence to become atransforming force in business.Thestudy comes in the wake of the recommendations of the DTI-sponsored Accountingfor People report, which looks set to take effect in the next two years. Itwill require the boards of larger companies to demonstrate that they understandthe factors that are material to a company’s performance.Accordingto the findings of The Work Foundation report – The Missing Link: FromProductivity to Performance – businesses must manage their staff to make themaware of customers and markets, shareholders, stakeholders, innovation and HRpractices.Thereport stresses that each area must be given the same weighting and that an‘Atkins-diet approach’, of putting more emphasis on one factor than the others,would be counter-productive.Byanswering 14 questions across the five core areas, companies can find out wherethey lie on a new productivity model, the High Performance Index (HPI), andthen take steps to fill any gaps.Thereport shows companies who fare well on the HPI can be up to 42 per cent moreproductive than those at the bottom.TheWork Foundation claims companies which use the HPI can expect to gain 2.5 percent extra growth, 2.5 per cent more sales per employees, 1 per cent moreprofitability and 17.5 per cent in terms of exports as a percentage of sales.RebeccaHarding, chief economist at The Work Foundation, said HR could now pinpointwhere there was a shortfall in the key HPI areas and take recommendations forimprovements right to the top of the business. “Everyonehas always known HR has the potential change agent – what we have done is putsome numbers behind it,” she said. “Thatgives HR a tremendous set of weapons to go and become involved in boarddecisions.”JohnPhilpott, chief economist at the Chartered Institute of Personnel andDevelopment, welcomed the report. He said there were lots of people makingrecommendations about strategic HR, but not enough coming up with practicalproposals for doing it.”Wehave enough think-tank analyses,” he said. “What we need is do-tanks.”Businessesalso backed the report. Norman Mitchinson, HR director at Lloyds TSB said:”This is a really powerful set of arguments that support a comprehensiveand integrated approach to improving business performance.”AndyScott, director of international competitiveness at the CBI, said the HPI wasimportant as it created figures for individual companies, rather than relyingon national figures, which might not match a single business.However,he warned that the real challenge would be to convince institutionalshareholders that the balance between objectives should be achieved. He doubtedthat there was sufficient recognition of the need for this equilibrium.”Wehave to get institutional shareholders to understand what the softer servicesbring if we want to give sustainability to business,” Scott said.ChrisBrown, strategy consultant for group HR at Abbey National, welcomed the work.But he said the investment community had been working in the same way for 300years, and a sustained effort would be needed to convince them of theimportance of working across all these areas.www.theworkfoundation.comTransformingHRWorkFoundation case studies show leading companies are moving the HR function froma transactional base to a transformational role using these techniques:–Leadership and clarity around the central values of the company and itsorganisational vocation.–Published material explaining corporate vision helping with embeddingorganisational values.–Increased profile of customer focus stimulating innovation and creativity–Flexibility and autonomous working creating greater motivation and performance.–Encouraging diverse thinking and creativity, whether service or science based.–Effectively using ICT to enable the people function through internal communicationlast_img read more

Investigations of squid stocks using acoustic survey methods

first_imgAcoustic survey methods are now widely used for stock assessments of finfish, both those with and without swimbladders, but their application to squid stocks has been limited in the past, probably because squid are not particularly strong targets for detection with echosounders. Experience with acoustic stock assessment of krill (Euphausia superba) has revealed that it is possible to survey effectively for a species that is a weaker target than squid; this is partly due to the tendency for krill to form dense aggregations. This paper discusses examples of acoustic studies on different squid species from the South Atlantic (Loligo gahi, Martialia hyadesi) and demonstrates that squid detection is possible in widely differing locations. L. gahi observed during a survey on the Falkland Shelf were shown to have acoustic characteristics in common with smaller organisms which may enable them to be distinguished acoustically from finfish encountered in these waters. When a species has been characterised acoustically, the technique permits rapid surveys of large areas to determine the geographic range of a population, both outside the usual area that can be surveyed using fishing methods and within areas that are inaccessible to nets for some reason.last_img read more

Jubilee boost for June’s grocery sales

first_imgGrocery retailers have reported their highest balance of year-on-year (YOY) sales this month since February 2010, according to the latest statistics.TheConfederation of British Industry (CBI) has published its latest Distributive Trades Survey for the period from 24 May to 14 June 2012, revealing an 85% rise in YOY sales for the month.The UK business lobbying organisation also found a 42% overall rise in sales volumes among high street retailers during the first two weeks of the said period, compared to a year ago. This is the fastest growth reported since December 2010 (+56%).Judith McKenna, chair of the CBI Distributive Trades Panel and Asda’s chief operating officer, said: “Retailers have continued to report strong growth in both their sales and orders. The Jubilee provided a much-needed boost to our high streets, with many families and communities making the most of the Bank Holiday and coming together to celebrate.“However, it is notable that sales were still considered to be below-par for the time of year. Weak consumer confidence and uncertainty over the economic outlook are still putting a brake on consumer spending across the whole retail sector.”Businesses recorded a 23% increase in orders, compared to 18% in June 2011, while a 10% reduction in volume of sales was seen to be below-average for the time of year.Wholesalers saw a broadly flat rate of +1% volume of sales compared to a year ago (+16%).CBI explained that although retailers are expecting strong increases in both sales and order volumes in the year to July (+32% and +21% respectively), “the pace of growth is expected to ease somewhat, relative to June”.last_img read more
