Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, February 11
Justice MMS Bedi of the Punjab and Haryana High Court today restrained a lower court from pronouncing its verdict in the case against UT inspector Ram Gopal till a decision was taken on a petition pending before him.

Justice Bedi also advanced the hearing from March 11 to February 16. The application was placed before the high court by counsel TPS Tung.

The directions came a day after six Chandigarh police personnel accused the lower court below of bias, a contention denied by the magistrate.

The six petitioners had initially claimed that Ram Gopal was an influential person. Two courts had sent back the case, holding that they did not want to hear the matter.

As such, it was a case fit to be transferred out of Chandigarh. They had moved another application for staying further proceedings till a decision was taken on their petition.

They alleged: “The attitude of the magistrate was biased and he was arrogant. He stated that as the petitioners had not got an order from the high court, he would accept the untraced report and pass an order against the petitioners. The magistrate was informed by the counsel in the trial court that as a petition for transfer of the case had been filed and notice of motion had been issued for March 11, it would not be proper for the court to proceed with the case. But even then, the court is proceeding with the case.”

The petitioners had alleged that Ram Gopal produced a forged and fabricated certificate before the police authorities, stating that he was declared world champion as he stood first and won a gold medal during the World Yoga Sport Cup at Genoa in Italy.

On the basis of this, Ram Gopal had been given seniority. When facts were checked from the website of an international yoga federation, it was found that Balmukund Singh had stood first.
