A division bench of Chief Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain was hearing a petition filed by Panchkula resident Vikas Miglani, who has sought the quashing of appointments of retired IAS officer K S Bhoria as chairman and Yudhavir Singh, Subhash Kaushik and Mukesh Lata Gupta as members of HTT in May-June, 2011.
Counsel for the petitioner, H C Arora, told the court that in May 2011, the chief minister had decided to appoint Justice S L Bhiana as the chairman and Rajender Ballah as member of HTT. However, within a few days, the chief minister changed his mind and appointed Bhoria as the chairman and Mukesh Lata Gupta as a tribunal member, he said.
Arora added that Yudhavir Singh, who is related to Haryana Advocate General Hawa Singh Hooda, was also appointed for a second term as member of the tribunal, though there is no such provision under law.
An inmate, serving life term in a triple murder case, on Thursday tied the knot with his girlfriend in the court premises at Jind. Sanjay, a resident of Sonepat district, married his girlfriend Mamta following a special three-hour permission given by court.
The wedding was attended by family members, besides a number of lawyers and court employees. In December last year, the girl had moved a petition before the court requesting permission for marriage.
