Crl Revision u/s 197 CrPC Heard – Judgment kept in abeyance
The Sessions Judge heard the arguments in a criminal revision u/s 197 CrPC against the order of the trial court by which the trial court disallowed the application of the accused for dismissing the complaint u/s 138 NIA of which the trial court had taken cognizance. The case was posted for orders by the Sessions Judge. The orders were not passed and repeatedly the court kept on postponing the order (4 adjournments were made!). Meanwhile the Judge got transferred
How ethical is it for a Judge to keep on postponing the pronouncement of order after hearing the arguments?
What is the legal position in this respect? i.e.is there a legal sanctity for this kind of an action of the Sessions Judge?
Will the new judge will rehear the entire arguments?
The complainant/respondent in revision knows that the Judge was pressurized through a higher member of the Judiciary to give an order in favour of the accused but it is very difficult and almost futile to prove it!
