He also said that the they were not approached before making the decision to sack the .
State Government on Tuesday ordered for disengagement of Additional Advocate General, Jammu, Vishal Sharma and Deputy Advocate General, Jammu Parimoksh Seth with immediate effect.
The order came two weeks after Sharma, representing state government filed a Public Interest Litigation, in High Court Jammu seeking a ban on bovine slaughter and sale of beef. While the lawyers were given two weeks time to withdraw the petition, they didn’t seem to budge away, which thus, led to inexplicable sacking order by the government.
