Principle of Parity III

In cases where illegible documents have been supplied, a grave prejudice is caused since no man can defend himself against an unknown threat. It has been brought to our notice, co-detenue, Neeraj Varshney, has already been granted relief on grounds of illegible Chinese documents. The principle of parity is squarely applicable. In cases of preventive detention, every procedural irregularity must be accrued in favour of detenue.
