Petitioner demands Rs 1 crore from allegedly indiligent judges

Deepak Khosla, a petitioner in the Shimla high court, asked for compensation of Rs 1 crore from two sitting judicial officers, police personnel, public prosecutors and McDonalds managing director Vikram Bakshi. Khosla alleged he had been “framed” in baseless criminal proceedings, resulting in substantial injury to his reputation.

The Times of India reported:

“The petitioner in court stated that no mala fides was being alleged against two judges of a district court arrayed by name in the application but alleges ‘implied malice’ resulting from their negligence in diligently perusing the case materials before them in which Khosla is an accused.

[…] taking up the application moved under Section 482 of CrPC, Chief Justice A M Khanwilkar heading the bench with Justice Kuldip Singh after issuing a stern warning to petitioner Deepak Khosla about the nature of the relief sought, (compensation of Rs 1 Cr) said in the open court that in all his career in the bar or as a judge he had not come across any such case where judges were intended to be sued.
