Jail Code

[IX of 1894]

Paragraph 910—

The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate has avoided passing of
orders on flimsy grounds and as such the question of approval of the District
Magistrate for such permission does not arise. In such a case, the under-trial
prisoner could invoke the inherent jurisdiction of the court for ends of
justice. The under-trial prisoner in this case is entitled to Class I status in
the jail under the provisions of Paragraph 910 of the Jail Code and the
authority is directed to allow the status due to him.
