Contempt Jurisdiction X | The Last Word


Court convicted the contemnor for having committed civil and criminal contempt. It had become evident, the contemnor has, in his well-calculated and deliberate scheme of things, given assurances and undertakings to mislead Courts in India, including this Court, when he had no intention to comply or abide by any of his assurances. Acts would demonstrate, they are not only ‘willful disobedience’ but are calculated to obstruct administration of justice and interfere with due course of judicial proceedings. They had clear effect of lowering authority of Court.

We direct, the contemnor be i) punished with simple imprisonment for a term of 6 months for civil contempt and to pay a fine of Rs. 12,50,000/-, in default he shall further undergo simple imprisonment for 1 month; ii) punished with simple imprisonment for a term of 6 months for criminal contempt and to pay a fine of Rs. 12,50,000/-, in default he shall further undergo simple imprisonment for 1 month. We further direct, sentences shall be served consecutively.
