Gulab Singh v. State Of U.P. & Others - WRIT TAX No. 849 of 2006  RD-AH 9191 (9 May 2006)
Hon'ble Sushil Harkauli, J.
Hon'ble Vikram Nath, J.
Pure questions of fact involved in this writ petition cannot be conveniently adjudicated in this writ jurisdiction. The learned counsel for the petitioner is relying upon a hyper-technical plea that illicit liquor and narcotic was not recovered from the shop of the petitioner. The FIR indicates that the person having these illicit items, on seeing the raiding party, ran away from the shop of the petitioner. Moreover, raid was conducted on information that illicit trade was being carried on in the petitioner's shop.
In view of this, we are not inclined to examine pure questions of fact. However, because the petitioner's license has been suspended pending inquiry, which according to the petitioner is being delayed due to transfer of the District Magistrate, it is directed that final decision with regard to cancellation of license or restoration of the same by revocation of the suspension will be taken with reasons by the District Magistrate, Siddharth Nagar within two weeks of the date on which a certified copy of this order is presented before the District Magistrate, Siddharth Nagar.
The writ petition is disposed of as above.
