HC stays probe against official

Bangalore, August 29, 2013, DHNS:

 The High Court of Karnataka on Thursday stayed the investigation against Asha Parveen, the former tahsildar of KR Puram, in a complaint charging her with criminal trespass into office.

Parveen was transferred from KR Puram in 2011 and was replaced with Shivakumar as a tahsildar. She approached Karnataka Administrative Tribunal which stayed her transfer.

However, when Parveen came to assume charge, her office was locked, allegedly at the instance of Shivakumar. She broke open the lock and took charge as tahsildar. Shivakumar filed a complaint of criminal trespass and Parveen moved he High Court seeking to quash the first information report against her.

Justice N Ananda disposed of the petition observing that charge sheet cannot be filed in the case. Parveen was given the liberty to approach the Court if a charge sheet was filed against her.

The police, surprisingly, filed a charge sheet and Parveen again approached he High Court seeking to quash it. R Kotwal, the counsel for Parveen, contended that the dispute between two government servants does not amount to criminal trespass.
He submitted that a public servant cannot lock a public office just to avoid handing over the charge, and sought stay on the proceedings against his client.

Justice K N Keshavanarayana stayed further proceedings against Parveen.
