Go thru newspaper publication;

The High Court may not refuse to issue directions for speedy trial. However, there is no guarantee that trial would take place speedily.
Ayan (Querist) 28 September 2017
Mr.p.venu , if high court direct to complete case in 5 years , lower court can it 20 years ?
if high court gives 5years , lower court as for another 2 years.total 7years.But the current case status , the case will run 20 years or more.Going to high court for speedy trial would be anyway advantageous .is not it ?
Please advice

Previous Chief Justice of supreme Court of India Mr. Jagdish Singh Khehar had also set many examples.
