The court rejects the application of the petitioner who had been charged under Section 5 of the Influx from Pakistan (Control) Act, 1949, who had argued for a re-hearing. The basis had been that based on unverified information, the petitioner had missed his hearing on the belief that the hearing would not take place on that day. The court rejected the application reasoning that the alternative would put a premium on carelessness.
