Dismissal Of An Earlier Section 482 CrPC Petition Does Not Bar Filing Of Subsequent Petition If Facts So Justify: Supreme Court
Case: Vinod Kumar IAS vs. Union of India
Coram: Justices UU Lalit, Indira Banerjee and Ajay Rastogi
Case No: [WP(Crl 255/2021]
Court Observation: The law on point as held by this Court in “Superintendent and Remembrancer of Legal Affairs, West Bengal Vs. Mohan Singh & Ors.” reported in SCC (1975) 3 706 is clear that dismissal of an earlier 482 petition does not bar filing of subsequent petition under Section 482, in case the facts so justify. Needless to say that as and when any appropriate application under the Code is preferred by the petitioner, the same shall be dealt with purely on its own merits without being influenced by the dismissal of the instant writ petition.
