Om Prakash v. State Of U.P. & Others - WRIT - C No. 26697 of 2007  RD-AH 10518 (7 June 2007)
Court No. 45
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 26697 of 2007
State of U.P.
Hon'ble V.K. Shukla, J.
Petitioner has approached this Court for issuing a writ in the nature of mandamus commanding the respondents not to demolish the shop of petitioner and not to interfere in his peaceful possession over the shop in question situated at Delhi Road, near Indian Cold Storage, Hapur, District Ghaziabad.
Petitioner has given details of the litigation inter se petitioner and respondent No. 7, wherein orders have been passed in favour of petitioner. Petitioner submits that in spite of the fact that he succeeded from court below, on 03.06.2007 an attempt has been made by State-respondents to demolish the shop in question. It has been contended by the petitioner that none of the respondent-authorities has issued any show cause notice or has given information to the petitioner with regard to demolition of shop, nor opportunity of hearing has been provided before taking such coercive measures against petitioner. In this background, it has been sought to be contended that respondents are not legally authorised to demolish the shop in question. The statements of fact which have been mentioned are vague and evasive. As far as State Authorities are concerned, it is expected from them that their action should always be subscribed and backed by law. Before rushing to this Court, at no point of time, petitioner ever approached the authority concerned for redressal of his grievances and unnecessarily motives have been imputed to the State Authorities. In case, petitioner has any grievance, then he can always move the State authorities. Relief claimed cannot be accorded by this Court.
Consequently, writ petition is dismissed.
