Administration of justice should be free from suspicion-Procior advising one party hearing case as District Judge.

It is important that the administration of justice should be free from even the suggestion of suspicion. A person acting as District Judge who has advised one of the parties should not proceed to try a case without getting the express consent of both parties.

Though no objection was taken at the hearing or in the
petition of appeal, the Supreme Court sent the case back for
re-hearing before another Judge.
