The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a PIL in search of an NIA probe into an settlement allegedly entered into between the Indian National Congress (INC) and the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2008, even because it stated one thing seemed to be “absurd”.
A Bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde requested senior counsel Mahesh Jethmalani, representing petitioners Shashank Shekhar Jha and Savio Rodrigues, to withdraw the PIL and strategy the excessive courtroom.
“Every relief which you are seeking can be granted by the high court. Secondly, the high court is the proper court. Thirdly, we will have the advantage of high court order also,” the CJI stated.
The Bench allowed the petitioners to withdraw the PIL with liberty to maneuver the excessive courtroom.
It was an settlement between a political get together in India with the one political get together in China, Jethmalani stated, including the problem associated to nationwide safety.
“We find that there is something which appears to be, what might be called, unheard of and absurd in law. You are saying that China has entered into an agreement with a political party and not the government. How can a political party enter into an agreement with China,” the Bench stated.
“We will allow you to withdraw this and file a fresh petition. We will examine what you say in the petition and if we find any false statement, we may prosecute you,” it advised Jethmalani.
“Within our limited experience, we have not heard that a political party is making an agreement with other country,” it famous.
