Taking Police assistance for Delivery of possession to Decree Holder: What Supreme Court held

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court yesterday castigated executive authorities for using police assistance to deliver possession of a property to a decree-holder though there was no order by the executing court to provide such police assistance.

A Bench of Justices Navin Sinha and BR Gavai noted that procedure adopted by the police with regard to the delivery of possession by resorting to a manner outside the procedure of the court, using the court orders as an umbrella was wholly unwarranted.
