Why Uttarakhand High Court orders CBI inquiry against its own registry?
Uttarakhand High Court on Monday ordered a CBI inquiry against its own registry office. The matter is related to the land worth crores situated in Dehradun of Delhi’s Angalia Housing Private Limited Company. It is said that in the year 2004, a case was under consideration in the court regarding the case of this land of Angelia Company.
Meanwhile, it came to light that some people tried to take advantage of the Delhi court through a fake order of the court regarding the case. When the director of the company, Santosh Bagla, came to know about this, he informed the Uttarakhand High Court through a letter in 2013 through the Registrar’s office of the court.
The then Chief Justice Warren Ghosh directed the then registrar to register charges with the police along with an in-house inquiry into the matter. Charges were registered at Kotwali, Mallital, Nainital. Since the matter was related to Delhi, the entire episode was referred to the Delhi Police.
But, by then the Delhi Police had filed a final report in the matter, but the Chief Justice, taking cognizance of the matter, converted it into a criminal case and filed a criminal petition in the High Court in 2013. The matter was heard in the bench of Justice Sharad Kumar Sharma.
Meanwhile, Santosh Bagla, director of Angalia Housing Company Pvt Ltd, submitted an application to the court demanding a CBI inquiry into the matter. The court had reserved judgment in the matter in April this year. Angelia Company’s advocates RP Nautiyal and Prashant Khanna said that while giving the verdict, the court has given instructions for CBI inquiry against its own registry.
