In a major relief to Tamil Nadu Director General of Police (DGP) and Crime Branch chief Jaffar Sait, the Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a plea challenging a Madras High Court order quashing a criminal case against him.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi junked the appeal filed by an A. Shankar through counsel Amit Anand Tiwari.
In his plea, Shankar sought to set aside the Madras High Court May 23 order quashing a chargesheet against Jait.
The petitioner told the court that the High Court judgment was untenable. He said the judgment was passed without making the complainant a party in the proceedings.
