C.R.R. 308 of 2019
In the matter of : Sri Nandan Laiya Ors.
SB Ct. No. 40
Mr. Krishnendu Bhattacharyya
Mr. Partha Sarathi Mondal
Mr. Somsuvra Mukherjee
Mr. Sobhan Majumder ….. For the Petitioners
This revisional application is for expeditious disposal of
a trial conducted before the learned Additional Chief Judicial
Magistrate – II at Haldia, Purba Medinipur in connection with
G.R. Case No. 993 of 2009 arising out of Bhabanipur Police
Station Case No. 156 of 2009.
Indubitably the case was initiated in the year 2009.
Police after investigation submitted charge sheet on
27.12.2010 under sections 498A/406/34 of Indian Penal Code
against the accused persons. Charge against the accused
persons were framed on 16.05.2016. The Trial Court is now in
the midst of recording evidence of the witnesses, cited in the
charge sheet. From the order impugned of the Court below, it
appears that 16.08.2019 is the next date fixed for recording of
evidence of charge sheet witness nos. 1 and 2.
It is submitted by the learned counsel appearing on
behalf of the revisionists that accused persons are made to
face undue hardship for the protraction of the trial having
caused in the meantime. True it is that about six years
consumed for framing of charge against the accused persons
after the charge sheet was submitted in this case.
Expeditious disposal is the basic right of accused
persons unless mitigating circumstances are established. In a
situation like this a direction is felt obligatory for expeditious
disposal of this case.
learned Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate – II at
Haldia, Purba Medinipur is directed to conduct the trial as
expeditiously as possible without granting any unnecessary
adjournment to any of the parties in this case pending before
him in connection with G.R. Case No. 993 of 2009 arising out
of Bhabanipur Police Station Case No. 156 of 2009 dated
11.12.2009 under Sections 498A/406/325/34 of Indian Penal
With these observations the revisional application, is
thus, disposed of.
