SLP Filed In SC Challenging Delhi HC Order in Kanhaiya Kumar Sedition Matter

By LawStreet News Network      24 January, 2020 04:01 PM      0 Comments

A Special Leave Petition (SLP) has been filed by Adv. Shashank Deo Sudhi in the Supreme Court on January 22, 2020 to challenge the Delhi HC order, which had refused to pass any order for the grant of sanction by the State of NCT of Delhi for trial in sedition matter.

The petitioner also sought a direction to the respondent Government of National Capital, (GNCT), Delhi to grant immediate sanction in one of the most serious & grave cases titled as State versus Kanhaiya Kumar in the 2016 case registered at Vasant Kunj police station which is being deliberately delayed by the respondent, GNCT, Delhi, by not granting the sanction.

The petition sought a direction to the respondents, including the GNCT, Delhi, for issuance of guidelines for fast prosecutions in respect of all sensitive criminal & corruption-related cases where the allegations are serious in nature & are having widespread ramifications on the community in terms of deterrence.

The lapses of respondents could amount to threat to the rule of law & democratic structure of our country for not having carried out adequate caution & precaution to bring the real culprits to justice in a time-bound manner” the petition stated.

The petitioner also sought a direction that in long-pending cases where the state govt hadn't lived up to the rule of law by not adhering to the solemn oath taken by the lawmakers under Schedule-III of the Constitution of India, 1949.

The petitioner sought a direction to the Respondent, GNCT, Delhi, to constitute a high-powered committee to look into the aspects of delay in the procedural compliances which are leading to inordinate delay in the administrative processes for grant of sanction or other compliances in the criminal cases of the state including the above said criminal case.
