Allegation against judge


HC imposed costs of Rs. 10,000 for levelling ‘unfounded allegations’ against a judicial officer of a lower court.


A single judge in the Madras High Court bench here has reprimanded a religious trust and imposed a cost of Rs. 10,000 for levelling ‘unfounded allegations’ against a judicial officer of a lower court.
Dismissing two petitions filed by G. Venkatachalapathy, the secretary of Sathu Dharmananda Saraswathi Swamigal Trust in Dindgul, Justice N. Kirubakaran held that no person can be allowed to ‘throw mud on the lower court judicial officers for their own cause.’
Mr. Venkatachalapathy had moved the High Court to transfer two cases, on the trust’s right to organise Thai Poosam festival at a private property in dispute, from the Principal District Court, Dindigul, to the district courts in Coimbatore or Karur with allegations that the Principal District Judge pressurised his counsel to argue the case and dispose it without giving them adjournment to submit their counter affidavits.

I guess there is no way to prove allegations in case of civil matters. 

  as if the judge has turned blindfolded to supporting documents submitted and not considered everything . and even charged the defendents for appealing to consider the valid documents.  the higher court will not blame the lower court judges but will just declare a human error, or a missed document etc. or they too might just turn blind folded.. 


  The worst factor is the time taken for such appeals which make citizens loose faith in the judiciary system of india.
