Andhra Pradesh HC on last Wednesday showed its concern for the functioning of the government’s legal team. It stated that they were unable to assist the judiciary and failed to inform the government.

The High Court has summoned DGP in a minor case for seeking clarification. It stated that due to the improper functioning of the legal team, it has to summon government officials. Justice B Devanand made the following observations. He expressed his displeasure with the working of the legal team. He pointed out “imagine the situation if the court is constrained to summon the DGP in a minor case.”

Court’s Observation

The Court noted the petitioner’s complaints in some of the petitions. While hearing the petitions, Justice Devanand took note of the petitioners’ complaints. They complained that police were not placing details of vehicles seized under the Excise Act. As a result of this, petitioners are not able to get back their vehicle. “Courts are forced to interfere because the legal advisors are not cooperating. But what will people think? Is the judiciary against the government? Is the judiciary creating obstructing the government’s every step? Judiciary is not against any person, any official or any government. Judiciary exists only for the people who approach it for protecting Constitutional rules,” Justice Devanand said.

He further stated that the Court was forced to interfere under Article 226. It is because of the failure of the officials to work. He told the DGP that he summoned him to Court only because the legal advisors failed to give him proper advice.

“There is no other reason to summon you to court,” Justice Devanand said. The Court gave exemption to the DGP from personal appearance in Court.

Court’s Order

The Court summoned DGP Gautam Sawang. He passed a slew of directions to the police and directed the police to submit details of seized vehicles before the Deputy Commissioner (Excise) within three days. He ordered DC to decide on releasing seized vehicles. The Court granted a week for completing the entire process.
