The Allahabad High Court has issued a show-cause notice to a police officer for deceiving the Court by providing false and erroneous information about a police station that does not exist.
The applicant’s counsel claimed that the applicant is the victim of an overzealous action by a mystery organisation of police officers organised into Special Operation Groups.
In a supplementary affidavit, the applicant maintained that no complaint had been filed against him under Section 3(1) of the Uttar Pradesh Gangsters Act with Police Station Akbarabad, District Amroha, as alleged. It was also alleged that there was no Police Station named Akbarabad in the district of Amroha.
Even the A.G.A. admitted before the Court that there was no such police station in District Amroha.
Justice JJ Munir issued a notice to Amit Kumar, Sub-Inspector of Police, Police Station Kotwali, District Bijnor, who informed the Court (through AGA) that a case was registered against a the Petitioner under Gangsters Act in Akbarabad police station (Amroha), despite the fact that such a police station does not exist.
The Court has ordered him to appear in the Government Advocate’s office on July 8.
