    A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice Lokpal Singh on Thursday set aside the said lease on the grounds that a multi-speciality hospital will now come up in the area.

    Bhowali resident Mohammad Azam had earlier filed a public interest litigation seeking cancellation of the 2010 order, saying Bhowali Sanatorium was of historic importance as many high profile political leaders were treated there in the past.
