S. Ranganathan, J. -
(1.)A Division Bench of the High Court of Calcutta found he appellant guilty of contempt of court and, rejecting the apology tendered by him, imposed a fine of Rs. 1,000 / -. Aggrieved by the above order the appellant has preferred this appeal petition.
(2.)The petition was originally numbered as Special Leave Petition (Civil) No. 13144 of 1989 and was dismissed by an order dated 23-10-89. It was, thereafter, pointed out that the petition must have been treated as an appeal petition under Section 19 of the Contempt of Courts Act. Accordingly we recalled our order dated 23-10-1989 and directed the SLP to be renumbered as a Criminal Appeal and listed for hearing. That is how this appeal comes up before us now.
(3.)There has been a delay in the filing of Special Leave Petition and, consequently, this appeal. After hearing both parties, we condone the delay in the filing of the petition. We admit the appeal and proceed to dispose it of.
