She has made serious allegations against Special Tribunal Member-III, Asif Hamid Khan for making certain adverse observations in his order which were not even the subject matter of her appeal and not even agitated by any of the parties.

The Special Tribunal has made special reference to the High Court for confirming the fine amount of Rs. 10 Lakh which might also come up before the High Court, while dismissing the appeal of Mamta Singh.

Sources said that JDA was contemplating a Caveat before the High Court to protect the Special Tribunal's order of dismissal of appeal, it did not file till the penultimate day of High Court's working before the ensuing summer vacation from June 10.

It is recalled that the Jammu Development Authority had issued a notice for demolition of, what they termed ‘illegally constructed' bungalow of former Deputy Chief Minister and senior BJP leader, Dr Nirmal Singh at village Ban in Nagrota on outskirts of Jammu allegedly constructed without a valid permission.
