Judge recuses from hearing plea against Omar detention

Feb 12, 2020 12:24 IST

Justice Mohan M Shantanagoudar on Wednesday recused himself from hearing the petition filed by former J&K CM Omar Abdullah's sister challenging his detention under Public Safety Act. The judge did not gave any reason for recusal. The petition cam up for hearing before a 3-judge bench comprising Justices NV Ramana, Shantanagoudar and Sanjiv Khanna. But after the judge's recusal, the petition will be considered by another bench tomorrow. The petition by Sarah Abdullah Pilot has termed Omar's detention as purely political and unconstitutional. The former CM has been under detention since August 5 alongwith Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti
