Last Updated on November 30, 2023 by News Desk

As a part of a major legal development, the Supreme Court has given its verdict on the writ petition (criminal) No. 341 of 2022, whereby the petitioner, Amandeep Singh Saran had sought redressal under article 32 of the constitution of India.

Issue:- Under the petition, the petitioner had requested that the registration of FIRs against him must be curtailed by the writ of mandamus, and all the FIRs across various states registered against him, must be consolidated.

Analysis:- Learned senior counsel J.S Attri and the counsel Sri Sharma represented the petitioner and ASG Vikramjit Bannejee, learned senior counsel Dr. Manish Singhvi represented the states.

Justice B.V. Nagarathna and Justice Ujjal Bhuyan examined the material on record.

They harped back on the precedent that was laid down in the Radhey Shyam case.

On the issue of the restriction of the FIRs by the writ of mandamus, the court said that it would be allowing the same as no court can do the same.

The court believed that it was something beyond the scope of the court’s authority.

On the issue of clubbing of FIRs, it has been said in the Radhe Shyam case, an order for clubbing of FIRs was made under article 142 and the court  here rejected the jurisdiction of 142.

Though, the court allowed the petitioner the liberty to approach the court of relevant jurisdiction in every state for the consolidation of the FIRs.
