No. 242 of 1940

Office of the Advocate General of Sindh

Karachi, 2nd July- 1941

Returned with compliments

            Under section 10 (1) (b), the accused had notify any. Absence or intended absence from his residence in the manner prescribed by rules.

Section 20 empowers a provincial Government to make rules to carry out the purpose and objects of the act. The power to make rules is not limited to the purposes and objects referred to in sub-clauses (a) to (0), but is general as is clear from the words of clause 2 of section 20.

            In presence of this power the Government has made rule 16, paragraph (1) of which provides that a registered member has to notify his absence only if he intends to absence himself for one or more nights and this means that there is no obligation on him to notify his intended absence for any lesser period. It os not easy to understand why to explanation to the rule was added, but presumably it was intended to emphasize that absence during day time was not to be taken into account.

No inference can be drawn from this explanation that absence during any time, however short it may be, between the hours of 8 p.m. and sunrise would be breach of the rule, as such an inference would be inconsistent with paragraph (1) of the rule.

            I am therefore of opinion that the judgment of the learned judge is correct.

            “The undersigned presents compliments to the Inspector General of Police”, 

            Criminal Tribes settlements officer, and is directed to state one. Haji Hayat son of Gulsher, a member of the criminal Tribe residing in the Thar Parker District, was cancelled under setion 22(2) (a) of the criminal tribe act, 1942, as he was found absent by the police on the night of 3rd february 1040 at 10:00 p.m. in contravention of the provisions of rules, 1937. He was convicted by the sindh criminal Tribes rules, 1937. He was convicted by the lower court but was acquitted in appeal by the sessions court. The session Judge remarking as under:-

1.                  “ According to my opinion, the words absence from his residence in this clause ( Section 10 – 1- b of the act) imply absence for at least some time A day or at least some hour it does not mean that the appellant could not go out of his house and absence him self from his house for a few hours.

2.      The district magistrate at the instance of the police moved Giovernment to perfor an appeal against the acquittal orders of the sessions judge rolying on the explanation to rule 16.

3.      In consultation with the Advocate General, Government have come to the conclusion that temporary absent for an hour or two during the night does not infrings the conditions specified in section 10 (1) (b) of the act. At the same this there seems to be some ambiguity about the explation to rule 16 of the rules but the explation does not suggest that temporary absence for even shoprt period is not permissible during the night.* A copy of the opinion expressed by the advocate General is enclosed.

4.      The Inspector General of Police is criminal tribes settlement officers now requested to express his opnion weather he considers it necessary to make any amendment to rule 16, read with the explanation to that rule, in order to remove the exiting ambigulity, and , if so submit the necessary draft moment.
