The Allahabad High Court made important remarks on the judicial system while hearing the petition filed in the case of FIR lodged in the Kotwali police station of Mathura on charges of corruption. The court has said that legal service is a mission along with judicial service. This is beyond normal services. If the plaintiff has to wait for a long time in the disposal of the case or it cannot be resolved, then this mission is incomplete.
It is the priority of the courts to decide the pending cases of the detained person expeditiously and delay is a hindrance. The presiding officers of the court cannot rest till the success of the mission.
The High Court directed the District Court Mathura for early disposal of the petition by the Supreme Court citing several other cases including Hussain. The court said that it should make a decision on the bail application of the petitioner in a week. Also asked to complete the magisterial test in six months and the session test in two years. Along with this, the punitive action against the petitioner has been stayed for 45 days.
Justice Rahul Chaturvedi has given this order while hearing the petition of Ladli Prasad. The court in its order also pointed out that the time limit given by it for disposal of the suit can also be a criterion for assessing the judicial performance of the judicial officers. The court, in its order, said that the petitioner's 45-day relief will not be considered for extension.
Timely disposal of cases is the responsibility of the government
The High Court also suggested the State Government in the matter. Said that it is the constitutional responsibility of the State to establish the necessary infrastructure for monitoring the working of subordinate courts to ensure timely disposal of cases.
