        It appears from the aforesaid order that the petitioner has not only been taking dates by moving adjournment applications on one ground or the other but is delaying the disposal of the case by filing frivolous application. The adjournment sought by the petitioner was not bonafide as has been held by the Court below and the facts in this regard have also been detailed in the aforesaid impugned order.  There is no illegality or infirmity in the impugned orders of the court below, hence no interference is required by this Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.

  The counsel for the petitioner states that the petitioner may be granted one opportunity to enable him to give evidence on his behalf. It appears from the findings of the Court below that the witness was present in the court but petitioner has refused to cross-examine him.

For the reasons stated above, the writ petition is dismissed.

However, the petitioner is permitted to give his evidence in the court below on the next date on payment of Rs.7500/- cost. No further opportunity will be granted to the petitioner to give his evidence and cost of Rs.75,00/- is to be paid to the counsel for  respondent no.2 for payment to him.

Dated 12.10.2006
