Due to lack of a regular judge in the Family Court of Thoubal district, many cases are pending while new cases have piled up day by day, said vice-president of TDBA Kh Arunkumar while speaking to the media at Manipur Press Club in Imphal West.

Comparatively, the number of cases pending before the Family Court, Thoubal is not lesser than those pending in the Family Court of Imphal and Imphal East as the Family Court in Thoubal is having jurisdiction over the two vast districts of Thoubal and Kakching, he added. 

All the litigants and conducting counsels are running up and down to catch up their cases but there is no progress, he said adding most of the litigants come from far off remote villages and are having low incomes.

The matter has been raised before the chief justice of the High Court of Manipur, however, there is no sign of any concrete action to solve the issue, he added.

Meanwhile, the court of the chief judicial magistrate has been working incompetently for five years without any transfer which is a record in the history of judiciary in Manipur, he said expressing the need of transferring the chief judicial magistrate.

“The situation of the judiciary is falling in the courts of Thoubal. People are losing faith in the judiciary which was once considered to be the most respected one,” said the vice-president.

On behalf of the TDBA, he appealed to all the 10 MLAs of Thoubal and Kakching districts to extend their help in meeting their demands for the welfare of the people and re-impose trust in the judiciary system of Manipur.
