The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday declined the request of a petitioner seeking directions that Rohtak's Apna Ghar inmates be shifted outside Haryana and that contempt proceedings be initiated against the state chief secretary.
Petitioner Utsav Bains had sought transfer of inmates outside the state preferably to Snehalaya, a shelter home in Chandigarh, and also sought contempt proceedings against the chief secretary, following the disappearance of two inmates of Apna Ghar.
The Haryana government apprised the court that all Apna Ghar inmates had been shifted to 14 different institutes across the state. As Bains pleaded for directions to shift the inmates to Snehalaya, a Division Bench comprising Justices Jasbir Singh and Rakesh Kumar Jain observed: "How can one guarantee that shelter home inmates will be safe in Snehalaya?"
Meanwhile, Anil Malhotra, who had filed a separate petition alleging that CBI failed to complete the investigation in the concerned case with in two months, withdrew his petition as a similar petition was pending before first division bench headed by Chief Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri.
