A single-judge bench of Allahabad High Court while hearing the petition filed by Vinay Kumar Gupta has expressed deep displeasure over the lack of improvement in the practice of issuing proforma cognizance orders by the Judicial magistrates.
Allahabad High Court observed that non-reporting of the seizure forthwith, shall not ipso facto render the seizure illegal particularly as no period is specified and it's consequences have not been provided. Thus the instant writ petition is also liable to be dismissed.
The Supreme Court has reiterated that the object of any criminal jurisprudence is reformative in character and to take care of the victim while allowing an application filed by a man seeking reduction of the sentence of three years of rigorous imprisonment for offence punishable under Section 498A IPC.
The Additional Solicitor General, Chetan Sharma urged the Delhi High Court bench to grant time to file a short response in a matter of plea seeking framing of guidelines to be followed while effecting search and seizure operations at the premises of Advocates.
