(1.) STATE is aggrieved by Order dated 10.3.2005 passed by Judicial Magistrate First Class (Forest Cases), Jammu, whereby a shop/ office
situated at Second Floor at K.C. Plaza, Jammu allegedly purchased by
Surain Singh Langeh, has been ordered to be released on the Supurdnama of
the applicant, who in terms of the order has been directed to furnish an
undertaking that he shall not dispose of the property by any mode of
transfer to any person, firm, corporation or company.
(2.) THE State of Jammu and Kashmir questions the order impugned in the revision petition, inter -alia, on the ground that the order is
without jurisdiction and tantamounts to interfering with the
investigation, which was being monitored by Honâ„¢ble High Court in OWP
(3.) SH . B.S. Salathia, learned Additional Advocate General, appearing in support of the revision petition submits that F.I.R
No.9/2001, under Sections 420, 406,120 -B of the Ranbir Penal Code, stands
registered by Crime Branch, Jammu against M/s Endowment Investment India
Limited. The Finance Company has looted thousands of depositors of their
hard earned money and the petitioner is not a bonafide purchaser and, as
such, is not entitled to the release of the property in his favour.
Sh. K.S. Pathania, learned counsel for Surain Singh Langeh, on the other hand, submits that the seizure of immoveable property by Police
was itself illegal. Police has authority and power to seize only movable
property and that immoveable property cannot be seized during the
investigation of any case.;
