Supreme court seeks response from the High Court for passing series of non prosecution orders in pre arrest bail applications in the same fashion

The supreme court while staying the arrest of the appellant took exception of the approach of the High court judge in passing a series of non-prosecution orders in the same manner on the same date.

The supreme court observed

“We are not supposed to comment at this stage but direct the
Registrar of the High Court of Allahabad to submit the report to
this Court after obtaining from the concerned Judge (Krishan Pahal,
J.) as to what prevailed upon him in passing the orders
consistently almost in 45 matters at a given point of time on the
same date dismissing them in the same fashion for non-prosecution,
that too when one has approached the Court for protecting his
liberty which is sacrosanct under Article 21 of the Constitution.”
