Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court has dismissed a petition moved by a junior civil judge who is under suspension seeking to restore the name of a sitting judge of the High Court as a respondent in a writ petition moved by him.
Mr Ramakrishna, junior civil judge, moved the writ petition seeking action against the judge and other judicial officers alleging that they had targeted him and were responsible for his suspension. Earlier, the court had deleted the name of the sitting judge.
A division bench comprising Justice V. Ramasubramanian and Justice J. Uma Devi, while dismissing the application said that “It’s clear that the petitioner first indulged in an attack on the court staff by filing police complaints against them and opposing their bail applications.”
The bench noted that “he later engaged in an attack on subordinate Judicial Officers working with him by filing criminal complaints and filing a writ petition to direct the SHO to register the complaint and he subsequently attacked individual judges of this court including the proposed respondent herein.”
The bench pointed out that he also engaged in an attack on the institution of the judiciary itself that led to a suo motu contempt being initiated against him.
The bench observed that “In simple terms, the very writ petition by the petitioner has as its foundation, a pack of lies. It has as its structure, the brick and mortar of many manufactured, fabricated and tampered documents, full of inconsistencies and glaring discrepancies. Such a structure is also sought to be painted with different colours.”
The bench said “We are of the considered view that when the writ petition itself did not deserve to be on the file of this court, the question of restoring the name of the second respondent in the array of parties does not arise.”
