Bengaluru: Election code violation case against BJP leader C T Ravi dismissed


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP/MS)

Bengaluru, Jun 8: The state high court has dismissed a criminal case filed against the BJP MLA, former minister and BJP national general secretary C T Ravi and his three supporters relating to violating model code of conduct during the previous Lok Sabha election.

Ravi and others had filed criminal petition seeking to quash the case against them. The single judge bench of the high court presided over by Justice Sunil Dutt Yadav which took up the application for consideration, dismissed the case.

The bench opined that the electoral officer should have filed the complaint in the magistrate's court. It observed that in this case, the complaint was directly made to the police station. As law has been violated in the process of registration of complaint, the same is not fit for hearing, the bench opined.

It may be recalled, during the last Lok Sabha elections, at around 1 pm on April 7, 2019, it is alleged that C T Ravi and his supporters held a meeting with 80 to 100 party workers at Bagehalli of Sakleshpur taluk. However, they did not seek any prior permission from the Election Commission to conduct this meeting. Election officer had promptly registered a case with Sakleshpur police station citing this as clear violation of election code of conduct. The police had registered an FIR, investigated the matter and submitted report to court. The case was in the court of people representatives at the inquire phase.

    So, the crime is NOT a crime anymore if the complaint is not through proper channel, What a great logic!! If you urinate in public, it is a crime but you urinate in your cheddi and throw it into public place, it is NOT a crime. Can anybody tell me, where do I lodge the complaint if I see a Police taking bribe or demanding bribe from me?

    Quote: the complaint was directly made to the police station. As law has been violated in the process of registration of complaint, the same is not fit for hearing, the bench opined. Unquote: is this applicable for ordinary people or politicians? but remember Almighty will not ask where did you first file the complain 'with me or with police' before giving his judgement. If court wants to take action promptly there is always option even without filing a complaint but the accused should not Godfathers in center and state like Arnab Go swami. By the where is Arnab from last 2 months totally disappeared from the Republic channel.

    there is no need to be surprised for court decisin in favor of covid rule voilator for Ravi. court is for bjp only and Covid rules are for general public only. BJP leaders are free to do anything. Election commission or court will not say anythign to them. Whereas a fruit vendor will be beaten to death for voilating covid rules. India is leading toeards dictatorship and democracy is beign raped by ruling party. Its shame on the part on indian courts for being so free to ruling parties and so strict on common people. It will be better to shut down courts as ruling party is not honouring the rules. Its really disgusting. Only God can save us. Our GDP is falling on daily basis.
