Harington and Gupta, JJ -
(1.) IN this case a rule was granted calling upon the District Magistrate to show cause why an order made under Section 125 of the Criminal P. C. should not be set aside on the ground that it was made without jurisdiction. It appears that the petitioner had been bound over m what is usually known as a bad-livelihood case to be of good behaviour. The District Magistrate, purporting to act under Section 125 of the Criminal P. C., cancelled the security bond on a report which he received from the police, and ordered that the" petitioner should be imprisoned, until a fresh security bond should be given. The Magistrate was not entitled to make that order under Section 125. Accordingly the rule must be made absolute and the Magistrate's order set aside.
(2.) THE rules granted in cases Nos. 878, 879, 880, and 881 of 1901 are made absolute for the same reason.;
