The Himachal Pradesh High Court today stayed the  order of the Special Judge (Forest), Shimla, summoning former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal in a case of alleged reemployment A.N. Sharma, a  former IPS officer, against rules.

The Special Judge (Forest), Shimla, had summoned Dhumal for May 30.

Passing the orders on a petition filed by Dhumal against the orders of the special court Justice Rajiv Sharma also directed the government to file a reply within 2 weeks.

Dhumal has challenged the orders of the Special Judge (F) Shimla on the ground that the prosecuting agency/Home Department has "misled" the trial court by not placing both the orders of the Governor of Himachal Pradesh and the orders had been passed without taking cognizance of the orders March 21, 2015  of the Governor.

On January 21, 2015, the then Governor Urmilla Singh had expressed opinion that sanction under Section 19 of Prevention of Corruption Act was not required while on March 21 the acting Governor Kalyan Singh had reviewed the January 21 order and refused prosecution sanction against Dhumal.

 Dhumal has alleged that the prosecution has suppressed the March 21 orders of the Governor from the Court and no cognizance can be taken for any offence alleged to have been committed by a public servant during discharge of official duty without any malafide.

The Court called for the entire records of the case and posted the matter for June 15.
