Vipin Kumar Pandey v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 18104 of 2007  RD-AH 6414 (6 April 2007)
Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing for the respondents. With consent of the learned counsel for the parties, this writ petition is being disposed of at this stage without calling for a counter affidavit.
It is the case of the petitioner that his father who was a Constable in the Civil Police was declared missing on 23.8.2006. At that time, the petitioner was a minor. The petitioner claims that after seven years of his father having been declared missing, he would be presumed to have died and as such the petitioner would be entitled to the benefit of being appointed on compassionate grounds. In support thereof he relies on a decision of this Court rendered in the case of Ajay Kumar Shukla Vs. State of U.P. (2005) 1 UPLBEC 858. It has been submitted that after passing his High School examination in the year 2004 he had applied for compassionate appointment, with regard to which his medical and physical examinations had been conducted by the respondent no. 3 but although nearly three years have passed, he has not been given appointment on compassionate grounds despite the petitioner having filed several representations in this regard.
Having heard learned counsel for the parties and considering the facts and circumstances of this case, this writ petition is finally disposed of with the direction that in case if, with regard to his grievances made in this writ petition, the petitioner files a fresh comprehensive representation before the respondent no. 3, the Senior Superintendent of Police, Sonbhadra alongwith a certified copy of this order, the same shall be considered and decided by the said respondent, in accordance with law, as expeditiously as possible, preferably within two months from the date of filing of the same.
With the aforesaid observations/directions, this writ petition is finally disposed of. No order as to costs.
