Reluctance of Police to Arrest and Produce Lawmakers Serious Matter: Supreme Court of India.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of India had prioritized all pending matters regarding police officials who are showing unwillingness to arrest the law makers who are charged with criminal proceedings and also Supreme Court has termed this as a serious matter. The Court was of the view that, there are number of cases against the law makers which are pending as the police officials do not show any interest regarding the arrest of the accused persons due to high pressure from the authority.

Justice N.V Ramana, Justice Surya Kant and Justice Aniruddha Bose were hearing the petition and were of the view that the police officials are not enforcing any law against the law makers due to pressure from higher authorities. The Court was also of the view that there are many High Courts asking for facilities regarding video conferencing to rapidly dispose of the pending cases on this particular matter.

New details of cases against lawmakers have also been requested, by the Court and the High Courts must provide details of the number of video conferencing facilities in the States for the speedy disposition of cases. The petitioner requested the Court to issue a “life time ban” against the law makers who are charged with criminal cases, however the Court has rejected the request.

The Supreme Court had previously been told that criminal complaints against current and former lawmakers have escalated over the last two years, so stringent micro-level supervision by the High Courts is important to ensure that complaints against lawmakers are expeditiously disposed of.

The Supreme Court had calculated the total number of cases that are pending. According to the latest report there are 4,859 total cases are pending and according to the report of March, 2020, there are a total of 4442 number of cases are pending. This particular report was submitted in a lawsuit filed in 2016 and highlighted the question of the unreasonable delay in the resolution of criminal charges against former and sitting politicians.
