Harish, who was on parole, had moved the High Court against the order of the Udupi Sessions Court, which sentenced him to life imprisonment in the case.
In his petition, Harish said the order of the lower court was "uncorroborated, inconsistent and unnatural" and prayed for setting it aside.
The lower court had found Harish guilty of the murder of Jayarama Rao, a resident of Kammarapady in Udupi district.
Jayarama Rao, a financer, was found lying in a pool of blood in his office on November 13, 1992.
He was admitted to hospital where he died on November 26, 1992. In his statement, Rao had alleged that Harish and others had attacked him.
The Malpe Police had arrested Harish.
Justice Bannurmath and Justice Mohan Shantanagouder acquitted Harish giving him the benefit of doubt and ordered his release. They also set aside the order of the lower court.
The High Court on Monday rejected a writ petition filed by a senior citizen of Bangalore questioning the Haj Subsidy Committee Act of 1959.
The petitioner, Hiranyappa, had also urged the court to direct the Government to celebrate Children's Day (now celebrated on November 14 on which date falls Jawarhlal Nehru's birthday) on the birthday of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose. He also prayed the court that it direct the authorities concert to make public a report on the Bhatkal violence and the Chittaranjan murder case.
The petitioner had made, among others, the Prime Minister, the Chief Minister and the Minister for Haj, respondents.
Justice Rangavittalachar rejected the petition.
The High Court quashed the proceedings against a lawyer of Tarikere, T.L. Prakash, who was accused on July 17, 2001 of assaulting a First Division Assistant in the Tahsildar's office in Tarikere. The assistant claimed that the lawyer also manhandled him and lodged a complaint with police. The lawyer had also challenged a complaint filed against him sometime ago.
