In response to a request made at the Bar for adjourning a Bail application on the ground that all the counsels have gone for pilgrimage, a Single Bench of Justice DK Singh observed, “This Court does not take cognizance of the people going for pilgrimage.” The Bench was hearing an application filed by Om Prakash Tripathi, apprehended by the Police in connection to Case Crime No. 632/ 2019, under Section 60/63 of Excise Act and under Sections 420, 467, 468, 471 of IPC. When the matter came up for hearing on 25 January 2021, a request was made to adjourn the case, as all the counsels have gone for pilgrimage to Shirdi. Though the Court allowed the request, it imposed a cost of Rs 3000 for making such an exception. The Bench observed, “This Court does not take cognizance of the people going for pilgrimage, but considering the request, it would be appropriate to adjourn the case for 28.01.2021 with some cost. Accordingly, the case is adjourned with cost of Rs.3,000/- (Rupees three thousand) to be deposited with the ‘Oudh Bar Association’ before the next date.” Case Title: Om Prakash Tripathi v.
