Hight Court to deal with plea against Gujarat cadre IPS official Rakesh Asthana’s appointment as Delhi police chief just 4 days before his stipulated retirement date: SC

The bench led by chief justice N.V. Ramana, and including Dr D.Y. Chandrachud and Surya Kant was hearing by NGO centre for Public Interest litigation(CPIL) on Wednesday. “We demand the Delhi High Court to consider the matter as ahead of schedule as conceivable in about fourteen days for us to have the advantage of the high Court’s judgment. Solicitor is at freedom to document mediation application,” the bench said in its order.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta asked the bench to give a time of about a month for the Delhi High Court to discard the matter yet the bench didn’t permit his petition saying that time is of substance in this matter.

Senior advocate Prashant Bhushan, showing up for CPIL, presented that the request recorded under the watchful eye of the Delhi High Court is the “copy paste” of his appeal. He presented that these are the methods of postponing the issue and named this pattern of documenting petitions “ambush petitions”.

The CPIL request in the High Court, documented through Prashant Bhushan, fights that the request delegating Asthana is in clear infringement of the High Court’s choice in Prakash Singh’s case as Asthana didn’t have a minimum remaining residency of a half year. What’s more, no Union Public Service Commission panel was framed for the appointment of the Delhi Police Commissioner, and the rule of having a minimum tenure of two years has also been overlooked.

In Prakash Singh’s case, the high court had held that suggestion for arrangement to the post of Chief General of Police by the UPSC and planning of board ought to be absolutely based on merit from officials who have a base leftover residency of a half year for example officials who have no less than a half year of administration before retirement.
