SC to examine plea challenging HC order against Noida’s Mist Avenue

The Supreme Court has agreed to examine a plea challenging an order of the Allahadbad High Court by which it quashed criminal proceedings against Noida-based real estate builders. A bench of justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit issued notice on a plea filed by a buyer, named Ashish Gupta, who claimed that the High Court erred in quashing the proceedings in a criminal case against the builders, and that it was an utter violation of natural justice. Advocate J P Singh, appearing for Gupta, said that it is “serious abuse of authority” and the High Court cannot quash the proceedings in a criminal matter on the ground of existence of arbitration clause.
