Present petition is filed challenging the order dated 09.10.2010 passed by learned Additional District Judge, Mohali, whereby evidence of the petitioner - applicant was directed to be closed.
Learned counsel for the petitioner states that on the date as fixed by this Court or by the learned Trial Court, entire evidence shall be produced before the learned Trial Court and no further adjournment shall be sought. C.R. No. 6896 of 2010 2 In the opinion of this Court, present matter can be disposed of at the admission stage without any notice to the respondents. This Court is of the further opinion that issuing notice to the respondents shall cause unnecessary delay in the disposal of the matter pending before the learned Court below, hence, this Court proposes to decide this petition without notice to the respondents.
In the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case, keeping in mind, the golden rule that none should be given walk over and lis between the parties, as far as possible, should be decided at its own merit after affording sufficient opportunities to both the parties to place on record entire evidence and material, this Court direct that learned Trial Court shall fix a date for the purpose of petitioner's evidence after one month from today. On the date so fixed, petitioner- applicant shall produce all the witnesses before the learned Trial Court for cross-examination. If, for any reason, examination is not complete on the date so fixed, then learned Trial Court shall be at liberty to hold day-to-day trial or fix any future date, which is convenient to the Court. However, it is made clear that no further adjournment shall be granted to the petitioner-applicant. Petitioner shall pay Rs.5,000/- as costs to the respondents herein before the next date so fixed by the learned Trial Court.
Petition shall stand disposed of accordingly. C.R. No. 6896 of 2010 3
