The Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh High Court last week revoked the suspension of the order of Civil Judge Imtiyaz Ahmad Lone, who was last year suspended following a complaint filed by Bar Association, Uri.

The suspension has been revoked on 'humanitarian grounds' taking into account the serious health issues that are being faced by Lone. He shall be paid full salary from the date of his reinstatement. He has been posted at Srinagar Wing of the High Court against the Leave Reserve post of Civil Judge (Senior Judge).

An official order was made public last Friday which stated thus:

"The Hon'ble Full Court, after taking into account the serious ailment of Shri Imtiyaz Ahmed Lone, the then Civil Judge (Senior Division)/ Sub-Judge, Uri and purely on humanitarian ground, has been pleased to revoke the suspension order of the officer."

His suspension decision was taken at a Full Court resolution passed on December 31, 2020 after a complaint was lodged against him by the Bar Association, Uri.

Recently, the Uttarakhand High Court had reinstated the then Civil Judge (Sr. Div.), Almora, Abhishek Kumar Srivastava, who was placed under suspension for allegedly using private vehicles belonging to an accused Chandra Mohan Sethi, for travelling purposes.

On February 22, the Uttarakhand High Court had suspended him and had attached him with the District Judgeship's headquarter Dehradun. Now, reinstating him, the Uttarakhand High Court has posted him as the 4th Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Dehradun.
