“the District Magistrate, Cooch Behar, Pawan Kadyan, is present….The District Magistrate has also tendered his unqualified apologies in court. In the light of the subsequent report prepared by the District Magistrate and the repentance shown for the earlier mistake, the District Magistrate is discharged. The contempt proceedings are dropped. His personal appearance is dispensed with. Since Mr. Kadyan has a long career, the court wishes him well but reminds him that his obligation every step of the way in his official capacity is to the citizen and to steer clear of the road of unfairness, unreasonableness and arbitrariness, particularly, at the behest of the political executive.”
