Mr.V.A.Mansuri, learned advocate for the petitioners.
this application, the petitioners seek a direction against the
respondent police authorities to protect the life and property of
the petitioners and their family members from any harm that may be
caused to them from the relatives of petitioner No.2 and other
the averments made in the petition as well as upon perusal of the
record of the case, it appears that so far the petitioners have not
made any application to the respondent authorities seeking police
protection. It appears that both the petitioners have so far not
dared to return to Karjan, their home town, apprehending
intimidation and harassment.
the fact that no application for police protection has been made by
the petitioners to the concerned authorities, there is no question
of issuing a writ of mandamus against the respondent authorities, as
prayed for in the petition. However, it would be open for the
petitioners to move appropriate application seeking police
protection before the respondents No.2 and 3 herein. Needless to
state that if such an application is made, the same shall be
considered by the concerned authorities keeping in view the
observations made by the Supreme Court in the case of Lata Singh
Vs. State of U.P. And Another, 2006 AIR SCW 3499.
to the aforesaid observations, the petition is disposed of.
