Pramod applied for the post of a Police Constable. He disclosed, he had been tried for an offence under Section 498A, IPC. As he was involved in a criminal case earlier, though acquitted, his candidature was rejected.
As such there was no suppression. Pramod was acquitted 7 years before he applied for the post of a Police Constable. It had been a matrimonial dispute which ultimately ended in a settlement.
Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited v. Anil Kanwariya, (2021) 10 SCC 136 is not applicable. It is directed, Pramod be appointed.
