Notice to govt on withdrawal of case against Naveen Soorinje

Bangalore, Feb 6 (PTI): Karnataka High Court today ordered issue of notices to the government and a regional television channel reporter on a PIL challenging the withdrawal of case against him in connection with attack on boys and girls in a homestay in Mangalore.

The division bench headed by acting Chief Justice K Sreedhar Rao ordered issue of notices to the government and reporter Naveen Sooringe on a PIL by advocate M P Amruthesh, seeking revocation of the cabinet decision to withdraw the case against Sooringe.

The petitioner said the government "without applying its mind" had withdrawn the case against Sooringe due to media pressure. He contended that there are 44 accused in the case and withdrawing the case only against Sooringe was "illegal and against Article 14 of the Constitution".

He further submitted that the accused in the case were charged under various sections of IPC, the Indecent Representation of Women Act and Karnataka Prevention of Development and Loss of Property Act.

He also pointed out that the case had been withdrawn despite Sooringe's bail being rejected by district court in Mangalore and also the High court.

On January 31, the cabinet decided to withdraw the case against Sooringe who is in judicial custody since his arrest on August 27, 2012.

Naveen Soorinje's arrest is highly objectionable and unconstitutional and against the freedom of speech ane expression. Naveen Soorinje never could become a party with the attackers. The charges are completely baseless, proofless and a revenge action taken by police and fundamentalist dictatorship forces in Dakshina Kannada district. Those who are accusing Naveen Soorinje for doing a commendable act by exposing the fundamentalist forces and their cruelty in the national level forced the government to act against the criminal forces that attacked the homestay. As revenge the police are being misused by fundamentalist forces which is an an act of dictatorship. This type of dictatorship against the media should be condemned. Otherwise, mediapersons cannot do their duties in coastal Karnataka which is shame to entire state.

Withdrawing criminal cases against accused/who is in jail under pressure by any quarters and while legal precedure under process is a bad precedent.It gives scope for further demand by others in favour of people invloved/accused in the case.If the government want to scrap the cases in toto it is better than making piece meal releases.Stae government action is nothing but making a mockery of judicial system and process.....
