The Punjab and Haryana High Court Thursday gave a split verdict on the procedure adopted in issuing notice to Bhupinder Singh Hooda by the S N Dhingra Commission constituted to look into alleged illegalities in the grant of land-use licences during former chief minister's regime.
While one of the judges quashed the report and directed no action against Hooda, the other held the report as "non est".
The judges, however, differed on the next course of action after finding the procedural irregularities in issuing notice under Section 8 B of the Commissions of Inquiry Act to Hooda by the one-man commission headed by Justice (retd) S N Dhingra.
Accordingly, the ruling was referred to the chief justice of the high court so that a three-judge bench can be set up to resolve the differences.
