Mumbai: A local court here has dismissed a petition filed by an accused relating to alleged forced anti-coronavirus vaccination, saying a lawyer has to take up the grievances of his client and not his own.
The applicant, through his lawyer, filed an application in the court, requesting action against the police and doctors for forcibly administering the vaccine before taking him to jail here. When the petition was heard last week, Sessions Court Judge SJ Gharat dismissed it. The detailed court order was made available on Friday.
In the order, the judge said, “I questioned the accused about his complaint of vaccination. The accused said that he watched some videos and hence, did not want to get vaccinated. When the court asked the accused whether he had brought this complaint to the notice of the concerned policeman or the vaccination staff, the accused replied in the affirmative.

The court said that therefore it appears that the accused did not object when the RT-PCR test and vaccination was done. Therefore, the argument given in the application is ‘not maintainable’. Referring to the counsel, who argued on behalf of the accused, the court said that from the arguments of the counsel it appears that he is against vaccination.
The court said that he (advocate) has also said that he has also filed a petition in the High Court against making vaccination mandatory. In which it is said that the vaccine does not protect against the corona virus. The court said that therefore the grievances of the client should be taken up and not that of the advocate. Provisions are available to protect the rights of the parties.
