Referring to the comments made by the Supreme Court on the long pendency of criminal appeals before the Allahabad High Court, the High court newly appointed Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal today called for expeditious disposal of pending criminal appeals.

Read more about the comments made by the Supreme Court in the last few months over the long pendency of criminal appeals before the Allahabad High Court here, here, and here.

Speaking at the 'Full Court Welcome reference' organized at Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court in his honor, CJ Bindal today sought the co-operation of the Bar so that the pending cases are disposed of as early as possible.

"A call of concern is the pendency of the old cases in this Court, which goes as old as 1974, before the Lucknow Bench. We have been getting a lot of comments from the Supreme Court in this regard, especially in the area of criminal cases. I would request to the Bar that with your great assistance, we would be able to get a good name and our reputation in that...that old cases, especially the criminal appeals, are not being taken up...would be having a positive note before the Supreme Court," Chief Justice Bindal remarked.

Importantly, this remark by the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court has come in the backdrop of the Supreme Court's last month order directing the registration of a suo motu case on the issue of long pendency of criminal appeals in the Allahabad High Court. 

Earlier, the Apex Court had sought for the response of the Allahabad High Court on the issue of expeditious disposal of criminal appeals, however, after noting that the suggestions given by the Allahabad High Court in its affidavit were "cumbersome", the Court had directed for registration of the suo moto case.

Earlier, the bench had also noted that several convicts are approaching the Supreme Court seeking suspension of sentence as criminal appeals are not being taken up for hearing by the Allahabad High Court.

CJ Bindal, while speaking at the event, also stressed that on the joint efforts expected to be made, both by the Bar and the Bench.

"The Bar and The Bench have to work together, they are two wheels of the same chariot. We will work together and we will be able to serve the litigants in society," concluded Chief Justice Bindal.
