Cases Refered

Adi Pherozshah Gandhi Vs. H.M. Seervai, Advocate General of Maharashtra, Bombay

The first was a case where the judge acquitted the practitioner. In such a case no appeal was open to the Attorney General under the Supreme Court Ordinance, and Lord Denning added “He has done his duty and is not aggrieved”. In other words, he did not come within the words of the 3 1 st section of the Order in Council. The Attorney General could not, therefore, ask for special leave as a person aggrieved’. But the case was different if the judge found the practitioner guilty and a Court of Appeal reversed the decision on a ground which went to the root of the jurisdiction of the judge or was otherwise a point in which the public interest was involved. In that case the Attorney General was a person aggrieved’.
