Crl. Misc. No.55635-M of 2006
Date of decision: February 6, 2007.
State of Haryana & Ors.
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE SURYA KANT
1. Whether Reporters of local papers may be allowed to see the judgment ?
2. To be referred to the Reporters or not ?
3. Whether the judgment should be reported in the Digest. Present: Shri Surender Deswal, Advocate for the petitioner.
Shri Tarun Aggarwal, Sr. DAG, Haryana.
The petitioner, who is a life convict under section 302 IPC, is aggrieved at the order dated 26.6.2006 (Annexure P1) passed by the Director General of Prisons, Haryana denying him parole for house repair on the ground that as per the report of the District Magistrate, Kaithal, the house of the petitioner is in good condition and does not require any repairs.
Somewhat similar stand has been taken in the written statement also.
On January 9, 2007, Learned Counsel for the petitioner sought adjournment to place on record photographs of the house. However, no such photographs have been placed on record.
Thus, there is no material on record to dislodge the conclusion drawn by the District Magistrate after a fact finding inquiry. Consequently, no interference is warranted in the impugned order.
However, if the petitioner's house is in such a dilapidated condition that it has become unfit for human habitation, liberty is granted to him to move an application along with supporting material to substantiate his stand and the respondents, on receipt of any such application, shall consider and dispose of the same in accordance with law, within a period of three months from the date of receipt of a certified copy of this order.
February 6, 2007. [ Surya Kant ]
