On Monday, November 16, 2020 the Supreme Court refused to pass any order on a petition filed by an Army couple seeking direction to the centre for joint posting.
Justice DY Chandrachud said, “There is self-restraint on part of courts in matters like posting & others.”
Appearing for an Army couple, Senior Lawyer and Ex-Solicitor General Ranjeet Kumar pleaded to Apex Court for joint posting. He submitted before Apex Court that their posting is in different places & they have a kid & their parents are almost bedridden.
The bench refused to pass an order for the petition and said, “We understand your predicament, (concerns), but someone has to be posted to Andaman Nicobar or Leh-Ladakh.”
