Relief Can’t Be Granted Against Registration Of FIR/ Criminal Proceedings In A PIL: Delhi High Court Imposes 25K Cost

The Delhi High Court imposed cost of Rs. 25,000 while dismissing a public interest litigation, seeking status report of foreign nationals lodged in jails and framing of guidelines for their deportation. The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh, while dismissing the plea filed by an organisation namely We Are Saath, observed, “It ought to be kept in mind that whenever any offence is registered against any person, then relief cannot be granted without appreciating the facts of the case. This writ petition is preferred as a PIL and therefore reliefs as prayed for cannot be granted by this court for those foreign nationals against whom offences are registered and who are in lawful custody of the Court.”
