Dismissal of Assistant, Sheristadar upheld

The Madras High Court has upheld the dismissal from service of an Assistant and a Sheristadar in the subordinate courts for misconduct.

A Division Bench comprising Justices Elipe Dharma Rao and M.Venugopal passed the common order on petitions by N.Raghunathan, Assistant, court of the Additional Sub Court, Salem and R.Alageswaran, Sheristadar, Chief Judicial Magistrate Court, Chief Judicial Magistrate Court, Tirunelveli.

The petitions sought to quash the orders passed in September 2005 by the High Court and to order their reinstatement with all consequential benefits.

The Bench said the dismissal could not be said to be harsh or disproportionate or excessive considering the gravity of the charges levelled against the petitioners.

The enquiry authority had rested his findings purely based on evidence of witnesses and also on documentary evidence.
