P.RAMAKRISHNAM RAJU,PRESIDENT -
(1.) THIS is an
application to condone the delay of 13 days in filing the appeal. What is
stated in the petitioners affidavit is that the copy of the impugned
order was received by the first petitioner on 10.6.2003. As the second
petitioner was the competent authority the order copy was sent to it
which was received by it on 18.6.2003 and hence there is a delay of 13
days in filing the appeal. There is no explanation for not filing the
appeal in time except stating that the order copy received on 10.6.2003
was sent to the second petitioner and the same was received on 10.6.2003.
Hence this application is devoid of merits and is accordingly dismissed.
(2.) EVEN otherwise, there are no merits in this appeal.
(3.) THE opposite parties in C.D. No. 519/2001 on the file of District Forum -I, Hyderabad are the appellants.
The case of the complainants, who are husband and wife is that while they were travelling on 10.10.2000 from Hyderabad in 3 Tier Sleeper
with confirmed tickets in Train No. 7046 and were allotted berth Nos. 41
and 42 in coach No. 8124 with two suit cases, at about 2.15 a.m. some
unauthorised persons entered the compartment and committed theft of the
luggage of the complainants and other passengers at 5.30 a.m. When the
second complainant got up and verified, she found that the luggage was
missing by cutting the chain attached to the ring. The complainants kept
Rs. 30,000/ - cash and clothes worth Rs. 40,000/ - in the suit -cases. The
incharge GRP noted the address of the complainants and promised to send
the FIR. They were forced to cancel their journey because of the theft
and neither the ticket examiner, conductor, attendant or police constable
could be traced when the theft occurred, hence the complaint.;
