The High Court on Tuesday adjourned a writ petition filed by senior IPS Officer Umesh Kumar questioning the chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM) in the pending criminal case against him.

Justice Ramesh Ranganathan adjourned the case to enable the petitioner to revise his choice of parties as respondents.

The judge wondered how the judicial officer was made a necessary party to the list.

In the main petition Umesh Kumar contended that the criminal case filed against him in connection with the alleged forgery of the signature of a MP must go back to the VI Metropolitan Magistrate after the High Court quashed the pardon granted in favour of the accused Sunil Reddy.

 He contends that under the law, though the CMM was proceeding with the trial on the basis of the said pardon where Sunil Reddy was shown as an accomplice and not a coaccused, with the order of the High Court, the matter must go back to the file of the VI metropolitan judge who deals with the said cases.

The plea was rejected against which the present writ petition is filed.
