wp1857-12
IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT BOMBAY
CRIMINAL APPELLATE JURISDICTION
WRIT PETITION NO. 1857 OF 2012
Mohini Narandas Ramawani (Kamwani)...Petitioner
Versus
Senior Police Inspector and others ...Respondents
M/s Anubha Rastogi i/by Gayatri Singh and Kranti the petitioner
Mrs. P. H. Kantharia, APP for the State
CORAM : A.S. OKA &
S.S. SHINDE, JJ.
DATE : 20th November, 2012.
P.C.
1. In this petition, apart from the other contention there is specific
contention raised regarding breach of directions issued by the Apex
Court in the case of D.K. Basu Vs. State of U.P. (1997 (1) SCC 416).
2. We have perused the affidavit of Raosaheb Baburao Sardesai,
Senior Police Inspector, presently attached to Vashi Police Station,
Navi Mumbai. The affidavit does not throw light on compliance with
the directions issued by the Apex Court in the case of D.K.Basu. The
so called arrest Panchanama or arrest Memorandum is shown to us,
which does not bear signature of the arrestee. Though it is contended
that information regarding arrest was given to the petitioner's daughter
by name Kanta, no record is shown to us to prove in what manner such
information was given. The learned counsel appearing for the petitioner
states that said Kanta is mentally challenged. The affidavit filed is
totally unsatisfactory.
3. Prima facie, the affidavit shows that the directions of the Apex
Court in the case of D.K. Basu have not been complied with. We direct
the concerned officer to remain present in this Court on 23rd November,
2012 at 3 p.m. along with entire record.
