Addl Chief Secretary Till Rising Of Court & Slaps 25000 Fine For Contempt: Allahabad HC


Justice Vivek Chaudhary
Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court sentenced Additional Chief Secretary Mahesh Kumar Gupta till rising of the court, holding him guilty of contempt of court, and imposed a fine of Rs. 25, 000 on him, clarifying that the cost of the fine shall not be borne by the State Government.

A contempt petition filed by Dr Kishore Tandon and eight other persons, alleging violation of the High Court orders passed in September 2017. The orders related to the preparation of seniority list of Assistant Review Officers (AROs), who were earlier known as Lower Division Assistants.
The court held him guilty of contempt and observing, 

"Even otherwise, heavens will not fall in case the order of this Court, which is operative as on date, is complied with by the contemnor and seniority is fixed. In case, any deviation is made to that judgment ultimately in the special appeal, it would always open to issue appropriate amending seniority list and pass consequential order. It defies the logic and no explanation is placed before the Court by the contemnor as to why there is absolute refusal on part of contemnor to comply with the order of this Court."
