WP No. 19067 of 1996
Hon'ble Yatindra Singh, J
Hon'ble VS Bajpai, J
Sri Sankh Lal Manjhi claims himself to be a schedule caste. In this connection some orders have been passed. He has filed the present writ petition for quashing the order dated 15.5.1996. In this case he obtained an interim order on 5.6.1996. It appears that the judgement in this writ petition was reserved on 4.11.1996 and thereafter the record of the case was misplaced. Some persons filed application for the vacation of the interim orders and on their application inquiry was conducted and now a departmental inquiry is being conducted against the persons found prima facie guilty. The record however, is not available. In view of this, it is appropriate that the record should be reconstructed.
Counsel for the petitioner has produced a photostat copy of the certified copy of the order dated 5.6.1996 certifying that it is a true copy of the order passed by this court on 5.6.1996. Let it be taken on record. The petitioner may filed two copies of writ petition within a week. The standing counsel states that a counter affidavit has already been filed. They may also serve copy of counter affidavit alongwith annexures on the counsel for petitioner and may file two copies of the counter affidavits filed by them within a week.
Ram Lakhan, Peer Ali and Lalmani Prasad have also filed applications for impleadment. Ram Lakhan is from public who was interested in contesting election from the place from where the petitioner has won the election; Peer Ali is alleged to be the person on whose complaint inquiry against the petitioner was started; and Lalmani Prasad is sitting MP from the place from where the petitioner has obtained the scheduled caste certificate. These persons can not be impleaded in the writ petition, however, they are permitted to oppose the writ petitioner under chapter 22 rule 5-A of the Allahabad High Court Rules.
Peer Ali and Lalmani Prasad have filed counter affidavits to the writ petition, the petitioner may file rejoinder affidavit by the next date to the counter affidavits filed by the State of UP, Peer Ali and Lalmani Prasad. There is no necessity to pass any order at this stage on the stay vacation applications.
On the request of counsel for the petitioner list this petition on 12th October 2004 alongwith writ petition no. 36015 of 1992 decided on 8.2.1999 and writ petition no. 12915 of 1990 decided on 16.9.1998.
