The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed plea in a case where the petitioner who had filed a Habeas Corpus plea in the case of his 16-year-old minor girl missing from temporary hutment in Shamshan Ghat, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad informed that she has returned home.
A three-Judge Bench of Justice U.U. Lalit, Justice S. Ravindra Bhat and Justice P.S. Narasimha heard the matter.
The plea was filed by Shyam Lal, son of Kanhaiya Lal, a daily wage labourer living with his wife and two daughters in a temporary hutment in the Shamshan Ghat, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad. The petitioner submitted that his entire family is illiterate and underprivileged.
On June 30, 2017, the petitioner’s daughter went missing and after he failed to find his daughter lodged a police complaint on 02.07.2017, at Indirapuram Police Station. He had alleged that thereafter he visited police station on many occasion but police neither took any action nor showed any inclination to trace out his daughter.
He had further stated in his plea that he had addressed several letters in this respect to the SSP with a copy to the Prime Minister, Chief Minister, DGP, Uttar Pradesh and DIG Police Meerut, UP but nothing had come out of it and hence had filed a plea before the Apex Court.
