On the advice of the full court of the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the government of Jammu and Kashmir has terminated the employment of judicial officer Mohammad Yousuf Allai. On September 10, 2021, the Government of Jammu & Kashmir issued an order in this respect.
“On the advice of the Hon’ble Full Court of the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor is delighted to order Mr. Mohammad Yousuf Allai, Civil Judge (Jr. Division)/Munsiff (under suspension) with immediate effect,” the order stated.
According to reports, Allai was appointed in 2000, but another judicial officer, Javid Ahmad Geelani, filed a lawsuit against him, claiming that Allai was appointed on the basis of a fraudulent certificate.
After the court decided in Geelani’s favour, the case was sent to the High Court’s entire court for further proceedings. The claims were determined to be genuine throughout the investigation, and he had in fact faked his RBA certificate.
