While dealing with a suo motu Public Interest Litigation (PIL), the Tripura High Court has issued special directions pertaining to interim orders and bail orders in view of the 21-day Coronavirus lockdown [Court in its own motion v. State of Tripura].
To this end, the Court has extended all interim orders passed by itself as well as those passed by subordinate courts and tribunals till April 30.
A Division Bench of Chief Justice Akil Kureshi and Justice S Talapatra held that if interim orders are not extended, the same would cause extreme difficulty to the litigants at large.
"In number of cases the Courts may have passed interim orders before 20th March, 2020 which would operate till a particular date. If such orders are not extended, the same would automatically stand vacated. This would result into great hardship to the litigants since for want of hearing the interim order would stand automatically vacated. He may also be seek permission to move the concerned Court for extension of interim order, thereby increasing the number of urgent cases which the Courts may have to deal with."
