Details

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court did not fully agree with the High Court Division Judgment.

They found no substance in the submission by the petitioner, inasmuch as, in view of section 33(9) of the Ain read with section 283 of the Ain, the Labour Court erred in law in taking cognizance of the offence.
