Petitioner made categorical statement of fact that at no point of time he has ever been prosecuted in any criminal case, nor has he been charge sheeted in any criminal case. Petitioner started his training and in the mids of his training, he has been served with an order dated 14.10.2006 by the Commandant 39 Bn. P.A.C. Mirzapur, mentioning therein that in the process of character verification, it has been revealed that against petitioner NCR No. 74 of 2005 under Section 323, 504 and 506 I.P.C. had been lodged and proceeding under Section 107/116 Cr.P.C. at police station Ahroura, District Mirzapur had been registered.

At no point of time any enquiry was made from the petitioner; and at no point of time any arrest had been made or petitioner had been summoned by any court/police. In this background, petitioner submits that when he has no notice, knowledge or information of the aforesaid proceedings, as such averments of the affidavit submitted by petitioner cannot be said to be incorrect, and the action taken against petitioner is totally unjustified action.
As to whether petitioner had any notice, knowledge or information of the aforementioned proceedings or not, is essentially a question of fact, as such liberty is given to the petitioner to make a representation before the Commandant 39th Bn. P.A.C. Mirzapur, within two weeks from today along with a certified copy of this order. On such a representation being made, the Commandant will get the enquiry and investigation made afresh qua the notice to petitioner of said proceeding, and thereafter, shall take appropriate decision on the same, in accordance with law, within six weeks from the date of receipt of the representation along with a certified copy of this order, and the decision so taken shall be communicated to the petitioner.
