Involvement in Criminal Cases

Commissioner of Police v. Raj Kumar

Police Force Recruitment – Involvement in Criminal Cases – The High Court’s approach, evident from its observations about the youth and age of the candidates, appears to hint at the general acceptability of behaviour which involves petty crime or misdemeanour. The impugned order indicates a broad view, that such misdemeanour should not be taken seriously, given the age of the youth and the rural setting – Such generalizations, leading to condonation of the offender’s conduct, should not enter the judicial verdict and should be avoided.
