further to my earlier posting as above, i am a little disappointed to see nil response inspite of my (stupid?) write up having been downloaded many times.
i just came across a latest judgement dated 19.10.12 (by justices radhakrishnan and Dipak Mishra) in Khoday Distilleries vs Mahadeswara SSK Ltd. wherein the same point has been raised and the court has referred the matter to a larger bench.
interestingly, the court has quoted our own matter (s.bhagirathi vs roman catholic mission).
the recent trend is to hold that a review after dismissal of SLP (not withdrawl) would not be maintainable. this is my considered view also (though I maintain that i am only a lay man).
i would like to get the expert opinion of our learned supreme court advocate friends cum members on this forum. i strongly believe that it is high time the matter is taken to the constitution bench. even a three member bench is not enough - because there is direct conflict between two three member orders - one in kunhayammed matter and another in abbai maligai matter. of course, it is easy to say that the later judgement will prevail.
kindly treat this as quite urgent.
