How to remove my name in rowdy sheet and how to get passport

Hello sir,

I was 27 years and I am about to marry when I was arrested in a murder case in 2019. I am working as an employee in a govt company on contract at that time. Due to this i lost my job.

After my arrest they opened a rowdy sheet on my name.

After 1 year they submitted chargesheet.

In dec 2023 i found not guilty and the case is closed.

I got case closure documents in mar 2023.

Now i am 31 years.

But the rowdysheet is still open and the police are saying closing rowdy sheet will take 5 years.

Due to rowdy sheet i am unable to get passport.

Due to rowdy sheet i am unable to marry. With the past case only i will not get married even it is closed.

But with the rowdy sheet the effect is more on marriage because it is in opened state.

I lost many software jobs in MNCs even if I got selected with a salary range 50k-1lakh per month due to this case.

So i am doing software job in small companies with small salary range of 20k-30k per month where these police verification will not be done.

The situation is same after the case is closed with the effect of rowdy sheet.

How will my life change?

How to approach to close this rowdy sheet.

Rowdy Sheets Can't Continue Where Accused Is Acquitted & No Criminal Case Is Pending.

In many cases it is noted that even the rules and procedure prescribed in Standing Orders are not being followed and that the Rowdy Sheets are being opened and continued mechanically without any application of mind and without any basis or material in support. It is also stated that the periodical review, which is stipulated by the Police Standing Orders, is not being followed and rowdy sheets are being continued ad infinitum. Even after acquittals in the solitary cases the rowdy sheets are being continued.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court has held that when an accused person has been acquitted of criminal cases pending against him and no more criminal cases

The Andhra Pradesh High Court has quashed multiple rowdy sheets, suspect sheets and history sheets in a batch of writ petitions without going into the merits of the case, in view of the recent common order of the Court in Udathu Suresh vs State of Andhra Pradesh & Ors.In Udathu Suresh, a single bench of the High Court had found that the actions of the police amounted to a violation of.fundamental rights.

You may file a writ petition before high court seeking relief and remedy accordingly.

Yes, you may approach the High Court in a Writ Petition.

Yes you can move ahead with advise of Mr Venu.  It is basic violation of human right.
