Blanket interim order of not to arrest or “no coercive steps” cannot be passed by a High Court mechanically and in a routine manner – Supreme Court

April 13, 2021

While deprecating blanket interim orders passed by High Courts under Section 482 of the CrPC and Article 226 of the Constitution of India, the Supreme Court held that blanket interim orders of not to arrest or “no coercive steps” cannot be passed mechanically and in a routine manner.

 

The Supreme Court further held that

“xviii) Whenever an interim order is passed by the High Court of “no coercive steps to be adopted” within the aforesaid parameters, the High Court must clarify what does it mean by “no coercive steps to be adopted” as the term “no coercive steps to be adopted” can be said to be too vague and/or broad which can be misunderstood and/or misapplied.”
