JUDGEMENT

P. Naveen Rao, J. - (1.)In these writ petitions grievance of petitioners is against Police not registering crime in spite of mandate of the statute and the law declared by Supreme Court and also tardy progress in investigation into the crime, in arresting the accused and in filing charge sheet. Petitioners directly invoked the jurisdiction of this Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India without availing statutorily engrafted redressel mechanism on the aspect of not registering crime even though what is alleged is a cognizable offence and/or not investigating into crime already registered.
(2.)The Writ Petitions can be divided into two categories:
1) In first category of cases grievance of petitioners is against not registering crime on a complaint made by the petitioners though crime alleged is cognizable.
