It seems people have little knowledge about the judiciary. Ok. I will start from the beginning.
Gopal Singh Shekhawat was arrested by the Andhra Pradesh police in Surat. However, on the way, the police presented him in Borivali magistrate court, Mumbai, for obtaining prisoner transit warrant popularly known as PT Warrant. However, a large group of advocates descended on the magistrate court on behalf of the accused Gopal and appealed to the magistrate that the accused Gopal would not run away and he would present himself before the Ongole court on or before September 1. On the condition that he would present himself before the Ongole magistrate, the Borivali court in Mumbai set him free on bail with a bail amount of Rs. 20,000 and two sureties of like amount.
However, Gopal did not present himself before the Ongole magistrate on September 1. Moreover, he preferred to file two writ petitions in Andhra Pradesh High Court - one civil and the other criminal.
In the civil petition, Gopal appealed to the High Court to direct the police not to interfere in his lawful business. Justice K C Bhanu refused to give any stay order on the investigation and posted the matter after three weeks. He issued notices to the Andhra Pradesh State Government, the Director General of Police, the Kandukuru Circle Inspector of Police, Prakasam district and Corporate Frauds Watch to file their affidavits presenting their case. The HC Justice while refusing to give stay order on the investigation even for a week, said that the crimes mentioned in the FIR are serious and under these circumstances the court has to listen what the complainant and the police have to say in this regard.
In the criminal petition, accused Gopal appealed to Justice Samudrala Govindarajulu to grant him anticipatory bail to prevent the police from arresting him. After hearing the Government pleader, the Judge said that the anticipatory bail could not be granted as the accused had already jumped the bail.
Meanwhile, Pratibha Singh Shekhawat, wife of Gopal, filed a quash petition in the Bombay High Court appealing to the court to quash the FIR registered against her by Andhra Pradesh police.
The laughable thing is that the Bombay High Court has no jurisdiction to quash the FIR filed by Andhra Pradesh police. Only Andhra Pradesh High Court has jurisdiction.
The Andhra Pradesh police had frozen the accounts of NMart all over the State and all transactions came to a standstill.
And the accused Gopal had turned fugitive running away from law. If he has any respect for law, he would have presented himself before the Ongole magistrate.
This is exactly what happened so far.
