Delhi High Court today refused to entertain a public interest litigation seeking directions to the “concerned authorities” not to hear false and frivolous cases and complaints, particularly against judicial officers.
A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath said there was no public interest in the matter and dismissed the plea, which also sought direction to the Registrar General of Delhi High Court to “make a circular for protection of the judges of Delhi High Court” from frivolous pleas against them.
“This writ petition is frivolous. Your prayer is that frivolous writ petition should not be entertained. This matter is not of public interest, therefore, we decline to entertain it,” the bench said.
The petition, filed by advocate Pradeep Sharma, has referred to a recent news report regarding a letter written against a judge of High Court by a complainant and alleged that “blaming an individual (judge) shows frustration of the complainant” and sometimes it is also done to “attract cheap publicity”.
