Cop vs judges: Court asks his boss to reply

 The joint commissioner of Delhi Traffic Police was on Thursday asked by a court here to explain what action was taken on a traffic policeman’s complaint against two judicial officers for allegedly harassing him for issuing challan to the brother of one of them.

Metropolitan magistrate Neeraj Gaur asked joint commisioner of police (traffic) to file an action taken report by December 1.

“Let a report be called from joint commisioner of police  (traffic) regarding action taken upon the complaint filed before them,” the court said.

The court called for the ATR after complainant head constable Maheelal Meena submitted that he had gone to the police station concerned to lodge a complaint and then to his senior officer — joint commisioner of police — and reported the matter to him.

The court earlier sought to know if the complainant had adopted a proper route of approaching police for necessary action before moving the court.

At this Maheelal’s counsel Satya Prakash told the court that he had approached his seniors, who know about incident.

Maheelal had filed a complaint against the alleged “unjustified and illegal” behaviour of a sessions judge and a metropolitan magistrate.

The complaint seeks summoning of the two judicial officers and try them for allegedly committing various offences under the Indian Penal Code, including those of criminal conspiracy, disobeying of law by public servants, public servant making wrong reports in judicial proceedings and criminal intimidation.
