Srinagar, April 02: The High Court declined to grant any interim relief to Dr Farooq Abdullah challenging the attachment of his properties by Enforcement Directorate in connection with alleged irregularities in Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association by recording that he has been only served with show cause notice and the order of attachment is provisional in nature.

Division Bench of Chief Justice Pankaj Mithal and Justice V C Koul after hearing said that we do not consider it to be an appropriate case to pass any interim order at this stage particularly when the laundering of Rs 43.69 crores of the amount is not in dispute which in all fairness ought to be returned to the public body, the JKCA.
