Delhi Police may get powers to file an appeal in court cases, will reduce role of AAP government

In an attempt to make Arvind Kejriwal led government toothless, the central government is planning to give Delhi Police Commissioner the authority to file an appeal in court cases and appoint public prosecutors in cases handled by the Delhi Police.

This decision would  reduce the role of the Delhi government in such cases.

Currently, the Delhi Police seek the consultation of the Delhi government’s home department before filing an appeal or appointing a prosecutor.

Some officials told ET, “The state government needs to give its opinion on whether a case is fit for appeal or not, and only then it is processed for further orders of Lieutenant-Governor”.

However the central agencies like CBI and NIA, are allowed to propose the names of public prosecutors which are cleared by the central government.

Delhi police have also prompted the Centre to make Lieutenant-Governor as the final authority to issue the order on behalf of Ministry of Home Affairs.

Economic Times reported that there were talks for not routing files related to prosecution sanctions for Indian Penal Code (IPC) crime to the state government and sending them directly to the LG. However, the Legal experts reportedly said that this proposal may land in trouble unless the Centre decides to nominate two categories of prosecuting authority that may further make the work of the police difficult.

An official told ET, “As far as law and order in Delhi is concerned, it is not with the Delhi government, therefore for other matters, the state government officials have no interest which leads to delays. It also means several rounds of persuasions for us to get a file cleared from the Delhi Secretariat. By making this amendment, we can reduce one layer of decision making and expedite the whole process of delivering justice”.
