THE HON’BLE SRI JUSTICE M.SATYANARAYANA MURTHY

WRIT PETITION No.14332 OF 2020

ORDER:-

This Writ Petition is filed under Article 226 of Constitution of

India, questioning the action of the 3rd respondent in not

investigating into Crime No.129 of 2020, dated 23-07-2020,

declare the same as illegal and arbitrary and consequently direct

the 3rd respondent to investigate into the Crime No.129 of 2020 on

the file of the 3rd respondent and to file charge sheet within

stipulated time, or alternatively to direct the 2nd respondent to

supervise the investigation done by the 3rd respondent.

2. The main grievance of the petitioner before this Court is that

the petitioner lodged the complaint in the year 2019 i.e. on

05.04.2019 making serious allegations against the unofficial

respondents. But crime was registered on 23-07-2020 i.e. almost

with a delay of more than a year and started investigation. But till

date, the investigation is not completed. In view of the long delay

in registration of crime, there is a possibility of obliterating the

evidence and requested to issue a direction to complete the

investigation as expeditiously as possible under the guidance and

supervision of 2nd respondent.

3. Learned Assistant Government Pleader for Home submits

that the investigation is in progress and assured that the 3rd

respondent will complete the investigation as expeditiously as

possible and file final report pertaining to the crime before the

Court.

4. In view of the submission made by learned Assistant

Government Pleader and taking into consideration the long delay

in registration of crime and possibility of obliterating the evidence

to be collected and produced before the Court, I find that it is

appropriate to issue a direction to the 3rd respondent to complete

the investigation as expeditiously as possible in accordance with

law and file final report in any event not latter than two (02)

months from today.

5. With the above direction, the Writ Petition is disposed of at

the stage of admission with the consent of both the counsel. There

shall be no order as to costs.

Miscellaneous petitions pending if any, in this Writ Petition,

shall stand closed.
