Delhi HC suspends the services of probationary Judge for having unexplained income

Judicial officers might want to step back before trying to confuse the court. Four days before he was set to become the Judge in a Trial Court, the services of a Judicial Officer Nitesh Gupta, Son of active Meghalaya High Court Judge V P Vaish, has been expelled for having unexplained income in his account. 

The Delhi High Court’s decision is so grave that it shrewd everyone and sent a message to all Judicial Officers who are alleged of being involved in any un-constitutional activities. The Court showed that no one is above the law. The accused Nitesh Gupta, was set to take charge as Metropolitan Magistrate in Tis Hazari Court, and now removed from all titles and services. The Court said, since the officer were on probation, no reason was required to be given for eliminating his services. The Registrar pointed out Rule 22, under which the termination of any officer on probation is acceptable without submitting any reason.

He was accused of having 5.73 crore in his account which he claimed as the amount of a loan given by someone. The person was later, found incapable of clearing the loan of such extent. The question regarding the presence of 5.73 crore in the account of a new recruit, who is still four days behind from being a Magistrate. Even his selection for the post of Magistrate is in questions as his Father V P Vaish was the Delhi High Court Judge during the selection process. This raises suspicions of nepotism in the selection process. Now, His father might also get framed under the allegation of nepotism.

The High Court on July 28 passed an order of selecting and transferring 70 DJS officers, including Gupta. Gupta was set to take charge in Tis Hazari Court to hear cases pertaining to the Negotiable Instrument Act.

The Delhi High Court comprising Justices Gita Mittal and S. Ravindra Bhatt and Sanjeev Khanna has commenced a huge operation against corruption in Delhi Judiciary system.

Earlier this month, the Court recently compulsorily retired an additional session Judge over the allegation of graft surfaced in a complained lodged by Enforcement Directorate.

The Modi Government, by terminating the services of a Magistrate has sent a message to every Government Official that if anyone caught red handed with such a huge amount of unexplained income will be charged and punished in the same way. This decision has injected fear into the veins of corruption and gave a message to every Judicial Officer who misused their powers for personal gain and been doing it on every stage either small or large.
