Md. Abdul Khalique and Ors. v. The State of Manipur and Ors. - (High Court of Manipur) (06 Jun 2016)

Slight deviation from guidelines forgivable at judicial review



Manipur High Court dismissed challenge by a constable of the police force against his dismissal order, which he claimed was passed without an enquiry being held and on the basis of uncorroborated evidence.

The court rejected Petitioner’s claims that his dismissal from the force was solely on the basis of a statement of a self-proclaimed leader of a banned army organisation; instead it noted the police to have recorded other instances of Petitioner’s “subversive activities”. The State’s intelligence agencies had also unearthed other incriminating evidence against him.

The Petitioner, a constable with the police force, was arrested for partaking in acts adversely affecting security in the State and was involved in anti-national activities. One of the several charges proved against him included hurling a hand grenade near a hospital.

The court concluded that judicial review of the dismissal order was restricted to the relevant authorities not having followed prescribed guidelines. However, departure from norm would likely not be interfered in by courts unless the same prejudice the interests of the public.
