PIL - Civil Writ Petition for Preventing Political Interference in The Functioning of Police


Civil Writ Petition for issuance of writ in the nature of mandamus for order or direction to be issued directing the member of legislative assembly to desist and refrain from interfering in the administration of law and order and/or do any act and/or give statement(s) which are separatist/ communal/ casteist/ racist in nature or which have the effect of inciting enmity/hatred among different classes of citizens of India; Etc...

The High Court of Punjab and Haryana in CWP No. 7639 of 1995, directed the municipal authorities to remove all advertisement hoardings in a time bound manner, which the Amritsar Municipal Corporation failed to do. By removing such illegal hoardings, the police was implementing the law of the land as laid down by the Hon’ble Court. The media reports clearly imply that Shri Anil Joshi, an elected Member of the Punjab Legislative Assembly (MLA), has been pressurizing the Amritsar police for dropping F.I.Rs and proceedings against his supporters (nearly 100) without following the due lawful course. Perusal of the video recording clearly shows that the aforesaid MLA has also threatened the SSP that if he continues to register cases against his supporters, he has to face dire consequences.
