The Rajasthan High Court, while dismissing a petition seeing direction to the state government for covering of borewells, has observed that mere general averments/allegations based on newspaper reports should not and will not be a cause for taking cognisance in public interest.

The Jaipur Division Bench of Chief Justice Akil Kureshi and Justice Sudesh Bansal disposed of a PIL on February 7 filed by Air Tree Foundation Society with a prayer for direction to the respondents that all borewells in the state should be covered, so that through accident, there is no casualty of human beings or animals.

Perusal of the petition, the Court noted that the main source of the petitioner’s information and consequent prayers in the petition is newspaper reports.

The Bench expected that if the petitioner wishes that this issue can be examined with seriousness in a public interest petition, the petitioner first makes proper research, collects material and brings it to the notice of the Court regarding the scale and seriousness of the issue.
