In Surekha Nitin Kapse v. State of Maharashtra, the Supreme Court has asked the Bombay High Court to pass an order which is comprehensible and can be understood by the Court.
A Bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose noted that the order of the Bombay High Court under challenge was unintelligible, and the Supreme Court could not decipher what has been decided by the High Court.
The Supreme Court said, “On perusal of the impugned order, we find it is unintelligible and we could not decipher what has been decided by the High Court.” It, therefore, set aside the order passed by Bombay High Court and remitted the matter back to Bombay High Court.
The Supreme Court also requested the High Court to pass an order which can be understood: “We, accordingly, set aside the order and remit the matter to the High Court. We request the High Court to pass an order which we can understand.”
In 2017, the Supreme Court Bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta had set aside a judgment of the Himachal Pradesh High Court because of the convoluted English used in the judgment.
