Supreme Court can also make mistake, not once twice
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 10:31:54 AM, DPA
New Delhi: Judges are also human, this fact has been amply demonstrated while trying to correct the mistake committed by a bench of the Supreme Court, the new bench committed another mistake.
State of Madhya Pradesh had challenged the acquittal of only four persons while the High Court had acquitted all the eight accused in the case.
The Supreme Court issued notices only to the four accused but convicted all the eight accused without hearing the remaining four accused.
The mistake was committed by a bench headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat (since retired).
A four-judge bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan ordered the release of four persons, who were convicted by the Supreme Court without hearing while issuing notice on the curative petition filed by the four convicts whose acquital was reversed by the Supreme Court by mistake without hearing them.
The later bench, however, ordered the release of four accused, who were heard and convicted instead of releasing the four accused who were not heared.
A bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice Deepak Verma, however, today promised that the mistake will be rectified soon.
Four persons Sugar Singh, Laxman, Onkar and Ramesh were ordered to be released earlier while other four who should have been released along with them are still in jail.
