Seniority cannot be claimed from a date when the incumbent is yet to be borne in the cadre: SC

The Supreme Court bench of Justice R. Banumathi, Justice A.S. Bopanna and Justice Hrishikesh Roy while considering appeals against Manipur High Court judgment has observed that, under Service Jurisprudence, seniority cannot be claimed from a date when the incumbent is yet to be borne in the cadre. The case arose out of an inter-se seniority dispute in the Manipur Police Service Grade-II Officers Cadre. Appellants, in this case, had contended that when the action was initiated for filling up the 2005 vacancies, the administrative delay in finalization of the recruitment leading to the delayed appointment should not deprive the individual of his due seniority. The bench held that the term "Recruitment Year" does not and cannot mean the year in which, the recruitment process is initiated or the year in which vacancy arises. Hence, seniority cannot be claimed from a date when the incumbent is yet to be borne in the cadre.| K. MEGHACHANDRA SINGH & ORS. vs. NIGAM SIRO & ORS.| 19/11/2019

Offence of rape cannot be settled between victim and accused: Delhi HC

Delhi High Court bench of Justice Brijesh Sethi has rejected an application seeking quashing of a rape case, filed under section 376 of IPC, on the ground of a settlement being reached between the victim and the accused. The High Court refused to exercise the inherent power under section 482 of CrPC. Justice Brijesh Sethi said that rape not only causes serious injury to a woman's body, but also to her honor and dignity. Even if such an offense is settled by the offender and victim, this offense is not private in nature, and having a serious impact on the society, cannot be quashed.
