Can lower court not follow the direction's of the high court?
The National rifle association and the affiliated rifle clubs are exempted from depositing licenced weapons during election, but the District Election commission (district magistrate) has rejected over request and forced us to surrender the weapons even after the High Court's direction to consider the exemption.
What should we do?
The Election Commission of India vide its letter no. 464/L&O/2?2014/PLN/923 dated 21st March 2014 has exempted NRAI and its members from the restrictions imposed under Election Commission’s order to deposit arms/ammunition with local police authorities.
If the said weapon is confiscated, then you can file a writ petition in the High Court against the Election commission for violation of its notification and seek directions from the court to order the Election commission to release your weapons.
