Petitioners fined for manipulating Azam Khan's letters
Allahabad, Aug 30 (UNI) Allahabad High Court has fined four petitioners with Rs 10,000 each for manipulating 'frivolous letters' of sitting Cabinet minister Mohd Azam Khan.
The petition was filed before the HC annexing certain letters purported to have been issued from the office of the local representative and signed by the minister concerned.
Since the document was not confidence inspiring, chief standing counsel C B Yadav, assisted by additional chief standing counsel Q H Siddiqui sought time from the court to produce the entire record for falsifying the stand of the petitioners with regard to the issuance of the letter.
After examination of the entire record, Justice V K Shukla found that the letters were manipulated by indulging interpolation in record.
Taking a very serious view, the court dismissed all the petitions fixing Rs 10,000 each as cost against all the four petitioners.
The petitioners Virendra Kumar Srivastava, Mohd Yunus, Shiv Charan Chauhan and Rajendra Kumar Vyas had challenged the validity of the order passed by the special secretary to the government on July 28, 2006, transferring them from jal sansthan, Jhansi to different nagar palikas.
