NEW DELHI: The flow of time does not dampen the rigor of our orders, said Supreme court on Monday and directed the Maharashtra government to release within 12 hours, who was kept behind bars despite orders to protect him from arrest.
What is the cause of serious concern for the bench of Justice Dinesh? Maheshwari And Krishna Murari is he public prosecutor and magistrate Latur The accused, accused of allegedly forging documents and forging documents in connection with the FIR lodged at the MIDC police station in Latur, were responsible for the violation of a May 7, 2021 order of the SC protecting a sub-registrar.
The bench had last year issued notice on the petition of the sub-registrar and gave six weeks time to the respondents to file their reply. Despite this, the prosecution applied for a non-bailable warrant and the magistrate agreed to issue it on the premise that the protection from arrest by the SC was valid only for six weeks. The person who relied on the Supreme Court order to protect himself, had no option but to approach the Supreme Court again. The bench convicted the prosecution and was annoyed by the magistrate’s poor understanding of the SC order. “Do we have to educate our magistrate? How did the prosecution apply? non bailable warrant When has the Supreme Court order saved him from arrest? He has to be released today.”
“It is rather interesting that despite the specific interim order of this Court that the petitioner shall not be arrested in connection with the FIR, the prosecution obtained a non-bailable warrant against the petitioner and when he appeared before the Judicial Magistrate, he Saw that six weeks after the interim Supreme Court order, protection from arrest was lost.”
