CORAM:- HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE JASBIR SINGH
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE PRITAM PAL
Present: Shri R.V.S.Chugh, Advocate for the petitioners Shri K.S.Sidhu, Advocate for the respondents Shri P.S.Chhina, Additional Advocate General, Punjab Jasbir Singh, J. (Oral)
On our asking, Shri Chhina states that the election record is available in Court. We have opened the sealed cover containing three envelopes. Seal of one of the envelopes, containing accepted nomination papers, was found to be broken. The second envelope, containing rejected nomination papers, was also found open. The third envelope, containing other documents, was opened by Court Secretary of this Court.
Shri Chhina is directed to handover the record after sealing the same to the officials of the bank. After perusing the record in these envelopes, we are satisfied that no case is made out for interference.
Counsel states that in some cases, the petitioners were defaulter, but immediately before elections, they had cleared their dues. Be that as it may, these disputed questions of facts, cannot be gone into in this writ petition.
CWP No.11595 of 2005 - 2 -
The writ petition is disposed of with liberty to the petitioners to file election petition as per law. If any election petition is filed within three weeks from today, bar of limitation shall not stand in the way of the petitioners.
