TitleCertain persons
Details

The expression ‘certain persons’ undoubtedly does not mean public servant alone and that no other person or that in other words ‘ordinary citizen’, as the petitioner claims himself. It can also be not said that the expression offences relating to corruption and certain other offences’ is referable to public servant, as has been contended by the petitioner, and that not referable to offences relating to corruption and certain other offences’ of an ‘ordinary citizen’. The other contention that the expression ‘provision for enquiry into the pecuniary resources of certain persons-- “referable to public servant and not to’ an ordinary citizen is also incorrect since expression certain persons’ includes both public servant and ordinary citizen.” (AKM Muhituddin Vs. State, 1999, 18 CLC (HCD) [5578])
