Delhi High Court expunges observations against Legal Services Committee

Justice Chandra Dhari Singh passed the order after the DHCLSC moved an application stating that non-appearance of the legal aid counsel appointed for the litigant was not on account of any lapse by the Committee but on account of his own non-communication with the counsel.

In an order passed on May 14, the Court removed paragraphs 7 and 8 of the order passed by it on May 3.

“Upon perusal of the contents of the affidavit filed by the Secretary, DHCLSC, captioned application, the submissions advanced by the learned senior counsel appearing on behalf of the DHCLSC, and no-objection on behalf of Mr. Jitendra Kumar, respondent in person, this Court is of the considerate view that the explanation provided by way of an affidavit dated 8th May, 2024 is satisfactory and thus the present application may be allowed. Accordingly, the captioned application is allowed and the paragraph nos. 7 & 8 of the order dated 3rd May, 2024 are expunged and the order shall now be read without the said paragraphs,” the Court ordered.
