W.P. (Crl.) No. 156/2016

Mr. Usman, Adv.

UPON hearing the counsel the Court made the following

O R D E R

State of Uttar Pradesh (respondent No.3) and State of Gujarat (respondent No.5) are yet to file their counter affidavits.

Last opportunity of four weeks is granted to these two respondents to file their counter affidavits.

Since in this petition the Court is primarily dealing with the issue pertaining to witness protection program, it would be appropriate to issue notice to all other States as well.

The petitioners shall implead other States also as parties and notice shall be served upon them, returnable in four weeks.

See also  Whether the newly engaged Advocate of the party can argue on the points not argued or given up by the previous Advocate of the party or rejected by the court?

Service is also permitted to be effected on the standing counsel for the respective State Governments.
