Challenging the Registry’s order, a Judicial Officer has moved to the Supreme Court.

In the Registry’s order, the Judicial Officer was denied to register a Curative Petition against the Judgement given by the Apex Court in the case of Dheeraj Mor vs. High Court of Delhi.

A Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court decision regarding this case made that the civil judges are not eligible for getting direct recruitment to post of District Judges in bar quota.

The Curative petition was filed by Syedullah Khaleelullah Khan, [3rd Jt. Civil Judge (Senior Division) Washim, District Washim (Maharashtra)]. Earlier, he also filed a review petition which was also rejected.

The plea challenges the Registrar’s order and states that the particular Registrar had no authority or jurisdiction to dispose of the petition in such a manner

“Learned Registrar could not have adjudicated the issue of maintainability of the Curative Petition which was in the realm of the Hon’ble Court.”, Khaleelullah Khan  stated.

He also mentioned the judgement given in the case of P. Surendran vs. State by Inspector of Police [(2019) 9 SCC 154] in which it was decided that the Registry has no power or authority to exercise such jurisdiction which is the jurisdiction of the Apex Court and that the appropriate Bench has to adjudicate the matter of maintainability of the petition as the same is a judicial function.
