New Maneuver of Fugitive Accused of PNB Scam: Nirav Modi appeals to the UK High Court

Wanted diamond businessman Nirav Modi in PNB scam has appealed in the UK High Court against the decision to extradite India. He has filed a petition seeking permission to challenge the court's extradition decision and its decision to approve the UK Home Ministry. Earlier in February, the last hearing on Nirav's extradition took place in the Westminster Court of Britain. The court had approved to send Nirav to India. After this, on 16 April, the UK Home Ministry also approved the handing over of Nirav to India. 

Now after this, Nirav was sure to come to India. 

Judge Samuel Gooji had said that Nirav Modi would have to answer in the case going on in India. He admitted that there is enough evidence against Nirav Modi. The decision came after a 2-year legal battle. 

Nirav Modi is accused of committing fraud of around 14 thousand crores by taking a loan from PNB. He escaped from the country in January 2018 after the scam surfaced. Nirav Modi, arrested on March 19, 2019, is accused of conspiracy to commit money laundering, tampering of evidence, and intimidating witnesses. On 16 April, the UK Home Ministry approved the extradition to India.

Specific relief only for enforcing individual civil rights and not for enforcing penal laws

Specific relief can be granted only for the purpose of enforcing individual civil rights and not for the mere purpose of enforcing a penal law. Therefore the provisions of this Act are applicable to civil cases adn not to criminal cases. 

In Bhudeb Mookerjee v Kalachand Malik AIR 1921 Cal 129, the Court held that the word obligation in Section 4 of the Specific Relief Act may be taken to be tie or bond which contrains a person to do or suffer something. It implies a right in another person to which it is correlated and it restricts the freedom of the obligee with respect to definite acts and forbearances  but in order that it may be enforced by a Court, it must be a legal obligation and not merely moral,social or religious.

In case of Dilip Kaushal v. State of M.P A.I.R. 2008 MP 324 (FB)., the Court held that the reliefs under the Specific Relief Act, 1963 are granted for the purpose of the enforcing individual civil rights as is clear from Section 4 of the Specific Relief Act, 1963. Hence, the provisions of Specific Relief Act do not apply to right conferred on corporation or any other person under Section 307(5) of the MP Municipal Corporation Act, 1956. Accordingly, injunction under Part III of the Specific Relief Act, 1963 is granted to the plaintiff either to prevent a breach of an obligation in favoour of the plaintiff, or to compel the performance of an obligation in his favour. Unless therefore, there is an obligation in favour of the plaintiff which needs to be enforced, the Court cannot grant injunciton. Hence it is provided in Section 41(j) of the Specific Relief Act, 1963 that an injunciton can not granted when the plaintiff has no personal interest in teh matter. The provisions of the Specific Relief Act, 1963 do not apply to the right conferred on the corporation and any other person under Section 307(5) of the Act of 1956. Under teh provisions of MP Municipal Corporation Act,1956 every building must comply with the provisions of the Act of 1956 and the byelaws made there under and hence if there is any breach of the provisions of Act of 1956 or the bye-laws made thereunder, Section 307(5) of the Act of 1956 confers a right not only on the corporation but also any other person to apply to the district Court for an injunction for removal or alteration of a building on the ground that there has been the contravention of the provisions of the Act of 1956 or the bye laws made thereunder.

Again in case Phullan Mian v Jogendra Ram A.I.R. 2006 Pat 183, it was held that only individual civil rights can be enforced by this Act. The court held that it is settled principal of law that for establishing the case of the specific performance of contract, it is essential to State adn prove that the plaintiff was always ready and willing to perform his part of the contract. Mere insertion of teh averments in the plaint that the plaintiff was always ready and willing to perform his part of the contract is not sufficient to decree the suit for the specific performance of contract but this statement must be proved by convincing evidence eithe oral or documentary. It is the admitted position that the reply notice was received by the. plaintiff on 20.3.1984 i.e. two days prior to filing of the suit and therefore, when the plaintiff was in know of the fact that the defendant No. 1 is ready to execute the sale deed, why he did not approach defendant No. 1 to get the sale deed executed and what was the necessity of filing the suit, for specific, performance of contract so hurriedly remained unexplained. This circumstance establishes that the very purpose of filing of the suit was something different and the plaintiff's assertion regarding the readiness and willingness to perform his part of the contract was merely a device. to give color to the genuineness of alleged agreement for sale. From the scrutiny of evidence available on record it is established that the necessary evidence to prove this fact that the plaintiff was always ready and willing to perform his part of the contract was lacking and the plaintiff has failed to prove the necessary requirements for obtaining decree of specific performance of contract. I, therefore, hold -that the courts below have committed grave error in decreeing the suit for specific performance of the contract.

Rule of Harmonious Construction

When there is a conflict between two or more provisions of the law they should be followed in such a way that maximum benefit can be obtained and no rule need to be violated in the process of following another one.

It is a sound rule of interpretation that Courts must try to avoid a conflict between the provisions of the statute.

A statute must be read as a whole and one provision of the Act should be construed with reference to other provisions in the same Act so as to make a consistent enactment of the whole statute.

It is the duty of the Courts to avoid conflict between two provisions and whenever it is possible to do so to construe provisions that appear to conflict so that they harmonize.

Where in an enactment, there are two provisions that cannot be reconciled with each other, they should be so interpreted that, if possible, the effect may be given to both. This is what is known as the rule of harmonious construction. Such a construction has the merit of avoiding any inconsistency or repugnancy either within a section or between a section and other parts of the statue. 

In the land mark case of CIT v. Hindustan Bulk Carriers (2003) 3 SCC 57 the supreme court laid down five principles of rule of harmonious construction:

  • the courts must avoid a head-on clash of seemingly contradicting provisions and they must construe the contradictory provisions.
  • the provision of one section cannot be used to defeat the provision contained in another unless the court, despite all its efforts, is unable to find a way to reconcile their differences
  • when it is impossible to completely reconcile the differences in contradictory provisions, the courts must interpret them in such a way so that effect is given both the provisions as much as possible.
  • courts must also keep in mind that interpretation that reduces one provision to the useless number or dead is not harmonious construction.
  • to harmonize is not to destroy any statutory provision or to render it fruitless.

In Re Kerala Education Bill Case 1957 the SC uses the rule of harmonious construction and ruled that there is no inherent conflict between fundamental rights and directive principles of state policy and that they together constitute an integrated scheme. They constitute a comprehensive social and administrative program for a modern democratic state. They are in fact supplementary and complementary to each other. Therefore as far as possible avoid any conflict among them. They run parallel to each other and none is subordinate to the other.
• If two interpretations of law are possible and if one interpretation violates the harmony between the two while the other reinforces the harmony, the latter interpretation shall be accepted over the former.
• However, if there is only one interpretation and that is conflicting them the court shall implement the fundamental rights over the directive principles because the SC is duty-bound to implement the fundamental rights.

In Venkataramana Devaru v. State of Mysore AIR 1997 SC 1006 the SC applied the doctrine of harmonious construction in resolving a conflict between Articles 25(2)(b) and 26 (b)of the constitution and it was held that the right of every religious denomination or any section thereof to manages its own affairs in matters of religion [ Article 26(b)] is subject to a law made by a State providing for social welfare and reform or throwing open of Hindu religious institutions of a public character to all classes and sections of Hindus [ Article 25(2)(b)].

The legislature enacts the law and the possibility of situations of ambiguity can not be ruled out. In that situations, the rule of interpretation of statutes come into play and the provisions are construed so as to give maximum effect to them. The doctrine of harmonious construction has help judges to interpret the two confronting laws easily and help in providing justice to society at large. Thus, it is one of the most important tools in hands of the judiciary while doing any interpretation of the statutes.

Mischief Rule of Interpretation

The mischief rule of statutory interpretation is the oldest of the rules.

The mischief rule is a rule of statutory interpretation that attempts to determine the legislator's intention. Its main aim is to determine the "mischief and defect" of the statue. 

The mischief rule was established in Heydon's Case in 1584. It was held the mischief rule should only be applied where there is ambiguity in the statute. Under the mischief rule, the Court's role is to suppress the mischief and advance the remedy. The Courts while applying the principles tries to find out the real intention behind the enactment. This rule thus assists the court in identifying the proper construction of statutory wording according to the original intention of the legislators.

As per this rule, for the true interpretation of a statute, four things have to be considered:

  • What was the common law before the making of the Act?
  • What was the mischief and defect for which the common law did not provide?
  • What remedy Parliament had resolved and appointed to cure the disease of the Commonwealth?
  • The true reason for the remedy.

The purposes of the Act and the mischief rule are, therefore, closely connected, and it is very genuine to look at the long title. Another example of the application of the mischief rule is found in Ohison v. Hylton[1975] 2 All E.R. 490. The facts, briefly, were a carpenter was on his way home from work. He boarded a train which was crowded. Another passenger objected and subsequently both finished up on the platform. The defendant, the carpenter, took one of his tools of his trade, a hammer, from his briefcase and struck the other man with it. He was charged under the Prevention of Crime Act 1953. Lord Widgery, CJ, said, inter alia:

This is a case in which the mischief at which the statute is aimed appears to me to be very clear. Immediately prior to the passing of the 1953 Act the criminal law was adequate to deal with the actual use of weapons in the course of a criminal assault. Where it was lacking, however, was that the mere carrying of offensive weapons was not an offence. The long title of the Act reads as follows:

‘An Act to prohibit the carrying of offensive weapons in public places without lawful authority or reasonable excuse’. Parliament is there recognizing the need for preventive justice where, by preventing the carriage of offensive weapons in a public place, it reduced the opportunity for the use of such weapons. If, however, the prosecutor is right, the scope goes far beyond the mischief aimed at, and in every case where an assault is committed with a weapon and in a public place an offence under the 1953 Act can be charged in addition to the charge of assault. Whilst on the subject of offensive weapons, mention must be made of the Divisional Court’s decision in Gibson v. Wales(1983) 147 J. P. 143, which decided that a “flick knife” is an offensive weapon per se.’

The mischief rule directs that the Courts must adopt that construction which shall suppress the mischief and advance the remedy. But this does not mean that construction should be adopted which ignores the plain natural meaning of the words or disregard the context and the collection in which they occur (Umed Singh v. Raj Singh).

In Sodra Devi's case(1957 AIR 832), the Supreme Court has expressed the view that the rule in Heydon's case is applicable only when the words in the question are ambiguous and are reasonably capable of more than one meaning. 

In Smith v. Huges, 1960 WLR 830, in this case around the 1960s, the prostitutes were soliciting in the streets of London and it was creating a huge problem in London. This was causing a great problem in maintaining law and order. To prevent this problem, Street Offences Act, 1959 was enacted. After the enactment of this act, the prostitutes started soliciting from windows and balconies. Further, the prostitutes who were carrying on to solicit from the streets and balconies were charged under section 1(1) of the said Act. But the prostitutes pleaded that they were not solicited from the streets. The court held that although they were not soliciting from the streets yet the mischief rule must be applied to prevent the soliciting by prostitutes and shall look into this issue. Thus, by applying this rule, the court held that the windows and balconies were taken to be an extension of the word street and charge sheet was held to be correct.

In Kanwar Singh v. Delhi Administration, AIR 1965 SC 871, issues of the case were as follows- section 418 of Delhi Corporation Act, 1902 authorised the corporation to round up the cattle grazing on the government land. The MCD rounded up the cattle belonging to Kanwar Singh. The words used in the statute authorised the corporation to round up the abandoned cattle. It was contended by Kanwar Singh that the word abandoned means the loss of ownership and those cattle which were round up belonged to him and hence, was not abandoned. The court held that the mischief rule had to be applied and the word abandoned must be interpreted to mean let loose or left unattended and even the temporary loss of ownership would be covered as abandoned.

In Regional Provident Fund Commissioner v. Sri Krishna Manufacturing Company, AIR 1962 SC 1526, Issue was that the respondent concerned was running a factory where four units were for manufacturing. Out of these four units one was for paddy mill, other three consisted of flour mill, saw mill and copper sheet units. The number of employees there were more than 50. The RPFC applied the provisions of Employees Provident Fund Act, 1952 thereby directing the factory to give the benefits to the employees. The person concerned segregated the entire factory into four separate units wherein the number of employees had fallen below 50, and he argued that the provisions were not applicable to him because the number is more than 50 in each unit. It was held by the court that the mischief rule has to be applied and all the four units must be taken to be one industry, and therefore, the applicability of PFA was upheld.

Literal Rule of Interpretation of Statute

Literal Rule of Interpretation is one of the oldest methods of interpretation adopted by the judiciary. 

The purpose of interpretation is always to find out what the statute stands for, what is the defect it intends to remove and what is remedy it seeks to advance.

In construing statutes the cardinal rule is to construe its provisions literally and grammatically giving the words their ordinary and natural meaning. This rule is also known as the plain meaning rule. 

According to the primary rule, the words, phrases and sentences of a statute are to be understood in their natural, ordinary or popular and grammatical meaning, unless such a construction leads to an absurdity or the statute suggests a different meaning. 

The words 'natural', 'ordinary' and 'popular' are used interchangeably. They mean the grammatical or literal meaning, except when there are technical work.

Every word in the law should be given meaning as no word is unnecessarily used.

One should not presume any omissions and if a word is not there in the Statue, it shall not be given any meaning.  

The first and most elementary rule of construction is that the words and phrases of technical legislation are used in their technical meaning if they have acquired one, and otherwise in their ordinary meaning, and the second is that the phrases and sentences are to be construed according to the grammar rule.

No judge can deviate from the meaning of the statute though decision maybe unjust. The words of a statute must prima facie be given their ordinary meaning.

The literal rule accepts the supremacy of the Parliament: the right to make laws, even though sometimes, they seem absurd. In the literal rule of interpretation, there is no contrary meaning within the statute.

Where there is no ambiguity in words, the question of intention ought not to be admitted. The words are plain and clear under the literal rule. The literal rule helps the judge in administering justice in a neutral manner.

When the language of the statute is clear and unambiguous it is not necessary to look into the legislative intent or object of the Act. The literal rule puts a virtual boundary upon the judges from not deviating from the ordinary or literal meaning of the words used in the statute.

If there is nothing to modify, alter or qualify the language which the statue contains, it must be construed in the ordinary and natural meaning of the words and sentences. Nothing is to be added to or taken from a statue unless there are adequate grounds to justify the interference.
