Prem Nath Singh Vs. State of Bihar [2009] INSC 1542 (7 September 2009)


CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CIVIL APPEAL NO.6114 OF 2009 (Arising out of S.L.P. (C) No.31147 of 2008) Prem Nath Singh & Anr. ...Appellant(s) Versus State of Bihar & Ors. ...Respondent(s) O R D E R Leave granted.

Heard learned counsel for the parties.

By the impugned order, the High Court dismissed the writ petition on the ground that the same was barred by principles of constructive res judicata.

Having heard the learned counsel appearing on behalf of the parties and perused the records, we are of the view that the High Court was not justified in holding that the writ petition was barred by the principles of constructive res judicata. This being the position, we have no other option but to remand the matter to the High Court.

Accordingly, the appeal is allowed, impugned order rendered by the High Court is set aside and the matter is remanded to the High Court. Now, the High Court shall decide the writ petition on merits after giving opportunity of hearing to the parties in accordance with law.
