CORAM : SMT.BHARATI H. DANGRE, J.
DATE : 05th SEPTEMBER 2018
1. Limited relief sought in the application to the effect that
the proceedings which the applicant has instituted under Section
498A before the 12th Court, Metropolitan Magistrate, Bandra,
Mumbai be expedited. It is contended that the said proceedings are
pending since 9 years, being instituted in the year 2007.
2. On the last date this Court had asked the learned APP
to produce the case wise pendency of the learned Metropolitan
Magistrate Court at Bandra. Accordingly, the learned APP has
produced on record the pendency chart, from which it is reflected
N.S. Kamble page 1 of 2
that the 12th Court, Metropolitan Magistrate, the pendency as on
15.08.2018, is 11,162 cases.
In such circumstances taking into consideration the
huge pendency before the said Court, it would not be appropriate to
fix a time schedule and burden the said Court since, there might be
some other cases which requires urgent disposal or hearing. In such
circumstances this Court would only observe that Metropolitan
Magistrate would make all endeavour to expeditiously dispose of the
case No.1352/PW/08 arising out of FIR No.547 of 2007. With the
aforesaid observations application is disposed of.
