Narendra Prakash Sharma v. State Of U.P. & Others - SPECIAL APPEAL DEFECTIVE No. 393 of 2007  RD-AH 8290 (2 May 2007)
Special Appeal No 393 of 2007
Narendra Prakash Sharma .....Appellant
State of U.P. and others .....Respondents
Hon'ble S. Rafat Alam, J.
Hon'ble Rakesh Sharma, J.
We have heard learned counsel for the appellant, learned standing counsel for respondents no.1 and Sri Rajiv Joshi, learned counsel for respondents no.2 and 3 and also perused the record.
It is vehemently contended that the appellant did disclose about the filing of the earlier writ petition in para-9 of the writ petition. It is also submitted that the petitioner-appellant also disclosed in para-10 of the writ petition about the order passed in that writ petition, a copy whereof was enclosed as Anneure-3 to the writ petition. It is, therefore, submitted that it is not a case where the appellant deliberately suppressed the facts regarding filing of the earlier writ petition. It is stated by Sri Y.K.Saxena, learned counsel for the appellant that pursuant to the impugned order of transfer, the appellant has already submitted his joining at the transferred place.
Having considered the submissions, we are of the view that the order dated 10.11.2006, impugned in the writ petition, being the order of transfer, which is an incidence of service, has rightly not been interfered with by the Hon'ble Single Judge. However, in view of the explanation given in the affidavit filed in support of the stay application the imposition of cost of Rs.10,000/- is excessive. We, therefore, modify the order of the Hon'ble Single Judge by reducing the amount of cost from Rs. 10,000/- to Rs. 100/-.
With the aforesaid modification, the special appeal stands dismissed.
