ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has actually berated the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa federal government over belated submission of examination records, regretting that failing to fulfill deadlines ‘for no plausible reasons’ signified poor administration.
” Belated entry of investigation reports, for no ostensible reasons, undermines the regulation of law and is a good sign of poor governance,” observed Justice Qazi Faez Isa while determining a bond application.
A four-page order authored by Justice Qazi Faez Isa, released on Monday, regretted that no thorough investigation was required because authorities themselves were a plaintiff in the issue.
Gul Rehman, the petitioner, was booked at Nowshera area’s Jalozai police headquarters on Might 3 under the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Arms Act of 2013 on a fee of bring an unlicensed gun, a shotgun, a rifle and also a great deal of bullets and also cartridges.
In case of conviction, the maximum punishment in the case is seven years jail time.
Considering that cops have neither submitted an investigation record (challan) neither also an interim report, the trial has actually not started as yet, even though Gul Rehman is in guardianship.
Justice Isa remembered a current example when the court admonished the prosecution, on a bail application, for not having sent the investigation report also after a gap of seven months.
The reasoning observed that the issue of non-submission, or an extraordinarily late submission, of investigation records required to be critically taken a look at and also remedied considering that such a method promoted lawlessness.

Trials do not begin in time due to neglect of the cops as well as the prosecution in not sending investigation reports within a certain duration, the court observed.
Consequently, either the charged is kept from being punished for the crime committed by him or is not able to secure his liberty. In either eventuality a wrong signal is sent that the judiciary is unnecessarily releasing the accused on bond or maintaining an innocent person in detention for no good factor, the reasoning regretted.
The focus shifts away from early verdict of tests to incidental issues, such as pursuing the treatment of bond by the implicated and the level of the state’s, along with the complainant’s resources spent.
The court’s time is wasted in addressing bail matters when it would certainly have been much better spent in addressing test and appeals, the order stated. “This excruciating state of events must come to an end.”
People encounter the effects when they violate the legislation, but the state escapes breaching the law far frequently, the order was sorry for.
The High court purchased the KP principal assistant to thrash out a mechanism to conquer “this native trouble” after holding a conference with the rural law enforcement agent, the assistant to the home as well as tribal events department, the supervisor of public prosecution and also the advocate general.
“A record signed by all the policemans that participate in such a conference be submitted to the High court within one month from the receipt of this order,” the judgement stated.
“Failing to submit a record, or one which does not deal with the issue, may constrict us to take notice and also pass proper orders,” Justice Isa observed.
The court approved bond to the petitioner.
