(1.) THIS appeal is directed against judgment dated 22.11.2005 of Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal, Jammu, in so far as it rejects Claims Petition
No. 44/2001 titled 'Sukhdev Kumar v. Jagjit Singh and Anr.
(2.) SH . P. S. Chandel appearing for the appellant submits that the Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal, had been harsh in closing the evidence
of the appellant, who could not appear as his own witness in the case
because of reasons beyond his control. He further submits that the
injuries suffered by the appellant and his inability to reach the
Tribunal on the date fixed for leading evidence have not been considered
by the Tribunal, which has hastened to close the evidence resulting
dismissal of his claim petition. Sh. Chandel seeks opportunity for the
appellant to appear as his own witness before the Tribunal and to produce
such other evidence which he may produce on the date fixed for the
purpose by the Tribunal.
(3.) SH . D. S. Chouhan objects to the submission of learned counsel for appellant and submits that no laxity can be given to the appellant
because he had failed to lead evidence, when provided opportunity in this
I have considered the submissions of learned counsel for the parties and gone through the records.;
