In a matter wherein the Petitioner alleged that whenever he attempted to mention any matter on the virtual mode or participate in any hearing of his matters, he was deliberately muted by the operators, the Madras High Court observed that Petitioner Requires Psychiatric Help.

The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy observed that there was no material in support of the general apprehension of the petitioner that the Registry is interested in not allowing his matters to be taken up by the Benches.

Further, the High Court administration also submitted that continuous letters have been written by this petitioner and wild and baseless charges levelled against all and sundry.

It was further submitted that the petitioner had threatened to commit suicide and leave a note blaming members of the Registry for such an act.

Court's observations

The Court, in order that frivolous nature of the matter can be adequately gauged, quoted the prayer in the instant writ petition

"It is prayed that this Hon'ble Court may be pleased to issue a writ of Mandamus to render justice because I was pushed to dangerous and critical situation. Please the Court render justice for me to save my life and pass such further order as this Hon'ble Court may deem fit and proper in the circumstances case (sic) and thus render justice".

Noting that no action can be taken on this petition and that the relief sought was vague, the Court noted that the petitioner would be at liberty to mention any matter which may be pending before the appropriate Bench, if there is any urgency in the same.

"There is no doubt that any matter that the petitioner has filed, whether frivolous or meritorious, will be listed in the usual course and dealt with in accordance with law," stressed the Court.

Lastly, the matter was directed to appear three weeks hence and the petitioner has been asked to furnish a list of the petitioner's matters pending before the relevant Benches for such matters to be listed as expeditiously as possible.

The matter has been posted for further hearing on July 8.
