High Court stays summons proceedings against Nitish

Patna: In a reprieve to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the Patna High Court on Monday stayed the summons issued against him by a subordinate court in connection with the murder of a Congress worker over 18 years ago.

Justice Sima Ali Khan ordered stay on the summons against Mr. Kumar issued by a Barh court on August 31 on a writ petition filed by Yogendra Prasad Yadav, already chargesheeted in the case, seeking stay on the proceedings of Barh court saying it was violative of an earlier order of the High Court in this connection.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Ranjan Kumar had passed the order asking Mr. Kumar and Dularchand Yadav to appear before him on September 9 following a petition filed by Ashok Singh, a relative of Congress activist Sitaram Singh who was killed in firing at a polling booth at Barh during the Lok Sabha election on November 16, 1991.

The Patna High Court had, however, on April 22, 2009 stayed the proceedings in the court of the ACJM in connection with the case till pendency of hearing on Mr. Yadav’s petition challenging the lower court’s move to take cognisance of the charges.

Hearing Mr. Yadav’s petition seeking initiation of contempt proceedings against the Barh court for allegedly flouting the High Court order, Mr. Justice Khan referred the petition to the Chief Justice with a request to transfer the matter to the same Bench which had earlier heard the case. - PTI
