Judgments of Supreme Court of India and High Courts

Chandan Chakraborty & Ors vs Unknown on 5 September, 2019


Court No. C.R.R. 1582 of 2019
Sl 29


In the matter of :- Chandan Chakraborty Ors.

Mr. Snehansu Majumder.

….for the petitioners

Ms. Sujata Das.

…for the State

Although this is an application for quashing of a proceeding

under Sections 406/498A of the Indian Penal Code, the learned

counsel appearing on behalf of the petitioners submits that the

petitioners would not like to press for quashing of the proceeding and

would instead pray for a direction for expeditious disposal of the case.

Let the petitioners serve a copy of the application upon Ms.

Sujata Das, learned Advocate, who is present in court today and who

ordinarily appears on behalf of the State. Her engagement may be

regularized by the competent authority of the case in due course.

The learned counsel appearing on behalf of the petitioners

submits as follows. The present proceeding was initiated by way of an

application under Section 156 (3) of the Code of Criminal Procedure

as far back as on 18.08.2008. Even though charges were framed on

30.01.2012, till date the trial could not be concluded. The proceeding

remains pending largely for no fault on behalf of the petitioners.

I have heard the submissions of the learned

counsels appearing on behalf of the petitioners and the

State and have perused the revision petition along with

the order-sheet annexed therewith.

I do not think any prejudice would be caused to anyone if an

order is passed directing an expeditious disposal of the case.

Although, the petitioners did contribute for some of the delay

in the proceeding, yet it appears that the proceeding remained

pending largely for no fault of the petitioners.

In view of the above and in the interest of justice, I direct the

learned Trial Court to conclude the proceeding as expeditiously as

possible without granting any unnecessary adjournment to any of the

parties, preferably within one year for the next date of hearing.

Urgent photostat certified copy of this order may be supplied

to the parties expeditiously, if applied for.

(Jay Sengupta, J.)
