The Allahabad High Court at Lucknow has imposed a cost of Rs 3000 for granting adjournment in a criminal case.
A Bail Application was listed before Allahabad High Court at Lucknow on 25 January 2021. On behalf of the Counsels for the Petitioner a request was made to adjourn the case, as all the counsels have gone for pilgrimage to ‘Shirdi’.
Hon’ble Justice D.K. Singh observed:
This Court does not take cognizance of the people going for pilgrimage, but considering the request, it would be appropriate to adjourn the case for 28.01.2021 with some cost.
Accordingly, the case is adjourned with cost of Rs.3,000/- (Rupees three thousand) to be deposited with the ‘Oudh Bar Association’ before the next date.
