Proving disproportionate assets cases challenging, says HC judge

Justice C. Praveen Kumar, administrative Judge of High Court, has advised young advocates to take up cases related to Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) which will be challenging and different from regular cases.

While inaugurating ACB court here on Saturday, Mr. Praveen Kumar said that there were a very handful of advocates in the region, who were dealing with ACB cases. He said that though defence and cross-examination processes are lengthy in these cases, one can learn a lot if he or she is involved. He said that proving disproportionate assets cases is very challenging as they will take a lot of time for cross-examination and defence during the trial.

Mr. Praveen Kumar said that 199 cases were transferred to this region and only two to three advocates from Visakhapatnam are arguing them till date. He told that relentless struggle by Rajamahendravaram Bar Association has brought this court to the city and informed that 26 posts were sanctioned for the court with jurisdiction of East and West Godavari districts.

District Judge N. Tukaramji thanked Mr. Praveen Kumar and Mr. Ch. Varaprasad of the district court. He said that the responsibility of advocates has increased after the ACB court opened here.

Bar Association president Muppalla Subbarao said that the process of getting ACB court started about seven years ago and constant efforts by Bar members and with the initiation of Mr. Praveen Kumar, the dream has come true.
