CHENNAI: A city civil court has severely censured a petitioner, warning him that he would be sent to Institute of Mental Health at Kilpauk for treatment if he is found loitering in court complexes, disturbing staff and court functions and making unwarranted allegations against judicial officers, while dismissing his petition.
The petitioner has been repeatedly approaching lower courts and high court seeking directions to police to take action on his complaints. The additional sessions court was hearing the revision petition after the chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM), Egmore dismissed his petition.

The petitioner, claiming to be an advocate appeared as party-in-person to appear his own case. The petitioner has two vague grievances the court noted. One against neighbours allegedly causing nuisance and another against a lawyer, who made the petitioner suffer loss in legal profession. Since police did not take action on his complaints, the petitioner approached the Madras high court in 2016 and the petition was dismissed. Meanwhile, he had approached the CMM, Egmore to direct police to act on his complaints in August and October last year.
The CMM had returned the petition directing him to submit an affidavit in support of the allegations. But the petitioner filed a review petition before the CMM and it was duly dismissed as a criminal court is not empowered to review its own order, the sessions court noted.
