A day after the Chandigarh administration suspended the public prosecutor dealing with the Sector 9 property mutation case on Tuesday; his suspension orders were revoked by the authorities on Wednesday after the advocates abstained from two-day work at the district court complex, Sector 43.

UT adviser Vijay Dev confirmed the development.

Work continued to remain suspended at the District court premises on Wednesday by the District Bar Association protesting against the suspension order of assistant district attorney Hukam Singh.

Moreover, All Haryana Attorney’s Welfare Association in a letter addressed to the adviser condemned the suspension of Hukam Singh referring it illegal.

“It is a clear of bureaucratic highheadness where a public prosecutor has been made a scapegoat to save the skin of inefficient, ignorant and corrupt officers. It is the basic common sense that orders of the court are to be implemented by the concerned authorities,” said president of the aforesaid association.

Earlier citing grave dereliction of duty, Vijay Dev suspended Hukam Singh.

Sources in the court had said the administration suspended the public prosecutor saying he did not inform the officials about the attachment order passed by the local court. Sources claimed that Singh, in a letter written to the estate office last month, had asked the officials to implement the court orders in order to avoid trouble, but the order was kept at abeyance since February.

The official car of UT finance secretary was attached for non-implementation of the court orders to transfer a Sector 9 property in the name of the petitioners which was finally released on Monday.
