Analysis of Supreme Court Judgement in Jitender Kumar vs. The State of Bihar

It is obligatory   for   the   Court   to   assign   the reasons as to why the petition is allowed or rejected, as the case may be.

It was found that the High Court did not assign any reason as to why the petition is liable to be dismissed. In other words, neither there is any discussion and nor the reasoning on the submissions urged by the learned counsel for the parties.

In view of this Court, such approach of the High Court while   disposing   of   the   petition cannot be countenanced. Time and again, this Court has emphasized the necessity of giving reasons in support of the conclusion because it is the reason, which indicates the application of mind. It is, therefore, obligatory for the Court to assign the reasons as to why the petition is allowed or rejected, as the case may be.
