    Specific Performance

    Specific Performance

    Where the contract for no fault of the plaintiff becomes impossible, Section 21 of Specific Relief Act, 1963 enables award of compensation in lieu and substitution of the specific performance. So far as the determination of the amount of compensation, it has been held that the compensation awarded under the Land Acquisition Act may safely be taken to be the measure of damages subject, of course, to the deduction therefrom of money value of the services, time and energy expended by the original land owner in pursuing the claims of compensation and the expenditure incurred by him in the litigation culminating in the award. Tune in as we discover how this principle played out in case of Ajit and Sukhbir.

    Cause Title: Sukhbir v. Ajit Singh

    Case Number: Civil Appeal 1653 of 2021

    Court: Supreme Court

    Citation: LNIND 2021 SC 155

    Appearing to be Guilty

    Appearing to be Guilty

    “The presumption of innocence is the general law of the land as every man is presumed to be innocent unless proven to be guilty. Alternatively, certain statutory presumptions in relation to certain class of offences have been raised against the accused whereby the presumption of guilt prevails till the accused discharges his burden upon an onus being cast upon him under the law to prove himself to be innocent. Section 319 CrPC springs out of the doctrine judex damnatur cum nocens absolvitur (Judge is condemned when guilty is acquitted) and this doctrine must be used as a beacon light while explaining the

    ambit and the spirit underlying the enactment of Section 319 CrPC.

    It is the duty of the court to do justice by punishing the real culprit. Where the investigating agency for any reason does not array one of the real culprits as an accused, the court is not powerless in calling the said accused to face trial. The question remains under what circumstances and at what stage should the court exercise its power as contemplated in Section 319 CrPC?”

    Tune in as we discover how the Supreme Court answered this question with respect to Section 319 CrPC.

    Cause Title: Sartaj Singh v. State of Haryana & Ors.

    Case Number: Crl. Appeal 298-299 of 2021

    Court: Supreme Court

    Citation: 2021 Indlaw SC 115

    RJB: Raid, Jail and Bail

    RJB: Raid, Jail and Bail

    Sonu, who is in custody under Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 (NDPS Act), w.e.f. 29.11.2019 for possessing 18.44 grams of heroin (Deacetyl morphine), has now come up before High Court under Section 439 of CrPC, seeking bail, on the grounds that the quantity of contraband allegedly seized is intermediate quantity and does not restrict bail, because the quantity greater than 250 grams of heroin (Deacetyl morphine), falls in the category of the commercial quantity; hence the restrictions for bail imposed in S. 37 of NDPS Act, do not apply, and in the present case he is in custody for a considerable time. What does the Court do?

PriyaMirza ,

Very, very good and very interesting.

This podcast picks up very interesting cases and discusses them in simple terms. The background music is a little annoying...but the content is excellent.
