HC slaps 10,000 cost on Police Inspector for inaction in pending Litigation

Karnataka High Court has directed the city police of Central Crime Branch to pay a sum of Rs 10,000/- as  penalty to the Karnataka State Legal Service Authority for not taking any action in a pending matter since one year. A plea was filed by Hariraj Shetty and other office persons of recreation club in West Bangaluru in the year 2015. In that plea, the petitioners had challenged the raid on their campus by police. After hearing the plea the Court had asked for the records relating to the particular raid.

Justice PB Bajanthri was of the view that the police officer, who had taken the charge on 19th December, 2019 had sufficient time to check the litigation process which was pending. The police officer was directed to maintain a proper record in respect of all pending litigation matters and must be submitted within the next date of hearing to check on how many matters that police officer had attended.

The petitioners alleged that the police raided the club on 2nd February 2015 on a bogus gaming allegation. They had requested direction from the police not to report the FIR, and also not to arrest them. On 27th February, 2015, the investigating officer was directed to furnish all the records by 3rd March, 2015, but he failed to do so. After that several hearings were held on that particular matter. On 17th November, 2020, the Court had pulled up the police and asked the investigating inspector involved to appear before the Court with all the relevant documents.
