Considering the submissions made by the learned senior counsel, let notice be issued to the State through the Public Prosecutor. Since the Public Prosecutor is not present today, the learned counsel for the petitioners shall serve a copy of the petition to the learned Public Prosecutor within two days. The notice is made returnable within two weeks. Depending upon the response made by the Public Prosecutor, Court shall consider requisitioning the Lower Court Records. In the interim, it is hereby provided that the proceeding in SR (PCA No. 8/2013) pending before the learned Special Judge under the Prevention of Corruption Act shall remain suspended.
