Daya Shankar vs High Court Of Allahabad And Ors

Supreme Court


AIR 1987 SC 1469*, *JT 1987 (2) SC 381, 1987 LablC 1025, (1987) IILLJ 356 SC, 1987 (1) SCALE 1024, (1987) 3 SCC 1, 1987 (3) SLJ 131 SC, 1987 (1) UJ 708 SC

About/from the judgment:

Judicial Officer cannot have 2 standards, one in the court and another outside the court!


In our opinion the conclusion reached by the Inquiry Officer that the petitioner used unfair means is fully justified. No amount of denial could take him away from the hard facts revealed. The conduct of the petitioner is undoubtedly unworthy of judicial officer. Judicial Officers cannot have two standards, one in the Court and another outside the Court. They must have only one standard or rectitude, honesty and integrity. They cannot act even remotely unworthy of the office they occupy. The second contention urged for the petitioner also fails and is rejected.
