Stinging Remark By Allahabad HC: UP Officials Don’t Understand Simple Orders In English

Prayagraj, December 18 (TNA) In a stinging remark, the Allahabad High Court (HC) has stated that officials in Uttar Pradesh do not understand simple orders of the court in English. The court directed the judge of Shahjahanpur to investigate notary advocate BK Singh and take action on negligence in preparing the affidavit.

It is written in the first paragraph of the affidavit that the affidavits of SSP Ghaziabad and SP Shahjahanpur have been verified. A personal affidavit was sought from SP Shahjahanpur on many issues, but without explaining any reason why the SP did not give the affidavit, the affidavit of Vedpal Singh, sub-inspector of police of Nigohi police station, was prepared and filed by the government. It is also not clear which officer authorized him to file the affidavit on behalf of the government.

The court has also directed to send a copy of the order to the Law Minister for taking appropriate action in this regard. The Chief Minister holds the law and justice department. Justice Piyush Aggarwal has given this order

The court directed the judge of Shahjahanpur to investigate notary advocate BK Singh and take action on negligence in preparing the affidavit. In the first paragraph of the affidavit, it is written that the affidavits of SSP Ghaziabad and SP Shahjahanpur have been verified. The affidavit paragraph has also been left blank. This was considered gross negligence by the court.

Along with this, a personal affidavit has also been sought from the Principal Secretary Home and Principal Secretary Law and Legal Counsel with an explanation for gross negligence in preparing the affidavit to the officers and Additional Government Advocate. The court has asked why the state officials and government lawyers are not working properly. If the personal affidavit is not filed, the court will summon both the officers.

The court has also directed to send a copy of the order to the Law Minister for taking appropriate action in this regard. The Chief Minister holds the law and justice department. Justice Piyush Aggarwal has given this order while hearing the bail application of Ram Sevak. The court said, due to the negligence of the officers, erroneous affidavits are often filed. Government pleaders seek time from the court to file correct affidavits, thereby wasting valuable court time. The application will be heard on December 22.
