Unique punishment: Delhi HC directs murder accused to do community service at Gurudwara


New Delhi, Mar 13 (ILNS) In an unusual order, the Delhi High Court today directed a young man charged for attempt to murder to do community service at the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib for a month.

“The youngster must learn to control his anger and keep in mind that he cannot take law in his hand…The petitioner is directed to do one-month community service at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib from March 16 to April 16, 2021,” directed Justice Subramanium Prasad, adding that Mohammed Umair was facing charges under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The court, while quashing the case against the yougster said, “Keeping in mind the fact that the accused is a 21-year-old youngster, having entire life ahead of him and the fact that the parties have entered into a settlement, this Court is inclined to exercise its jurisdiction under Section 482 CrPC to quash the FIR on the ground that the parties have entered into a compromise.”

The bench also directed Umair that after the completion of one month, a certificate from Gurdwara Bangla Sahib be also filed to show the compliance of the order.

“In case of any absenteeism/default on part of the petitioner, the same shall be conveyed immediately by Gurdwara Bangla Sahib to the concerned SHO, who shall, in turn, inform the APP for the state, for bringing the same to the notice of the Court and for seeking recall of the orders passed today,” the bench said.

Justice Prasad also imposed a fine of Rs one lakh on the petitioner, to be divided equally among the ‘DHCBA Lawyers Social Security and Welfare Fund,’ the ‘Nirmal Chhaya Foundation,’ the ‘Delhi Police Welfare Fund,’ and the ‘Army Welfare Fund Battle Casualties.’

”A copy of the receipts be filed with the Registry within three weeks from today to show the compliance of the order,” it added.

Advocate Jaspal Singh appeared for the petitioner, while Additional Public Prosecutor Kusum Dhalla appeared for the state. ILNS/ANB/SNG/JR
