Mukesh Jain’s Real Estate Foreclosure Order

New Delhi: Mukesh Jain, who has filed a public interest litigation challenging the appointment of former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Justice Deepak Mishra, has been ordered to foreclose. A bench comprising Supreme Court Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Suryakant passed the order. In 2014, Swami Om and Mukesh Jain filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court over the appointment of Justice Mishra as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

On August 29, 2017, the Supreme Court ordered the collection of Rs 10 lakh from the two men as the case was motivated. Both sides then appealed for a reduction in the sentence. Judging by the application, the Supreme Court reduced it to Rs 5 lakh in 2020. During the last hearing, the bench of the two complainants was informed of the death of her husband, Om. The court found that Mukesh had been fined Rs 5 lakh.

The Supreme Court has ruled that any public interest litigation filed by the plaintiffs in the future will not be accepted unless the proof of payment of the fine is proved. During the hearing today, Mukesh’s lawyer, AP Singh, told the bench that he had been transferred to Cuttack as there were four criminal cases against him in Odisha. The bench in this regard ordered the foreclosure of Mukesh’s immovable property in Delhi. The Supreme Court has ruled that Mukesh could be released on bail if he is not released. The bench had made it clear through a Cuttack trial court that the order was to be forwarded to Mukesh today. The next hearing in the case is set to begin on Friday.
