Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a plea filed by a father who is seeking justice for his minor daughter who was allegedly abducted, gang raped and murdered. The bench directed the petitioner to approach the High Court.
During the conference solicitor stated that the candidate’s minor girl was hijacked, assaulted and killed, and the guardians were not allowed an opportunity of playing out her last rituals as the police persuasively incinerated her dead body at 12 PM.
Chief Justice of India NV Ramana told the petitioner to go to the High Court.
“I’m a labourer, I’m a victim of system, there’s complete lawlessness in Uttar Pradesh,” the counsel said.
To which, CJI replied, “Don’t flood this court with this kind of petitions, why coming directly to SC?”
Then, the counsel said, “I’m a victim father, this is a peculiar situation. I’m from Bulandshahar, HC is far away than SC.”
We can grant liberty to approach HC. Every writ petition I can’t entertain, the apex court said.
The petitioner’s counsel, then, sought permission to withdraw the petition and approach the High Court.
“Don’t repeat it again. Permission to withdraw and approach High Court,” CJI said.
