HC notice to AJK PSC over alleged unjust selection of candidate

MIRPUR: (Parliament Times) Azad Jammu & Kashmir High Court has initially accepted a writ petition filed by a candidate, who was reportedly declared successful for the slots of Section Officer for AJK Govt. but was later allegedly dropped by Azad Jammu & Kashmir Public Service Commission during its selection process / examination conducted in 2015 and whom result was declared this year.
The learned AJK HC comprising Justice Azhar Salim Babar has ordered the issuance of notice to the defendants including the AJK PSC to respond with the comments in response to the petition – by fixing March 20, 2017 as next date for further proceedings of the case.
Other defendants in the case who have been made party in the case included the Chief Secretary of AJK government, Secretary AJK Public Service Commission, AJK Police Department and Home Department of AJK government.
The petitioner Muhammad Luqman Jarral s/o Abdul Waheed Mirza, (Pakistan-based Jammu & Kashmir refugee), currently residing Mirpur AJK, has prayed in his writ petition, to the learned AJK HC, to issue an order to the AJK Police Department to send the requisition for the vacant post of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) to AJK Public Department for onward formal approval of his appointment against the said vacant post – for which he had already successfully qualified the examination comprising written test and interview conducted by the AJK Public Service Commission.
The petitioner further contended in his petition that in an earlier officially-announced result the AJK PSC declared him the successful candidate for the post of Section Officer – although he had neither applied nor appeared in any written test for the post of the Section Officer conducted as above by the AJK PSC.
He had applied only for the post of ASP and resultantly appeared in the written test examination for this post, according to the petitioner Muhammad Luqman Jarral who pointed out that the PSC dropped his name even from the first official list of the selected candidates for the posts of the Section Officers when he invited the attention of the higher authorities of the PSC about the enlisting of his name as the successful candidate for the SOs’ slot instead of for the post of the ASP for which he had applied in response to the public advertisement of the Public Service Commission, he added.
