An Ordinance to consolidate and amend the law relating to the control of disorderly persons commonly known as goondas in the province of [3][the Punjab]

Preamble.— WHEREAS it is expedient to consolidate and amend the law relating to the control of disorderly persons commonly known as goondas in the province of [4][the Punjab];

      Now, THEREFORE, in pursuance of the Presidential Proclamation of the seventh day of October, 1958, and in exercise of all powers enabling him in that behalf, the Governor of West Pakistan is pleased to make and promulgate the following Ordinance:-

1.   Short title and extent.— (1) This Ordinance may be called the [5][Punjab] Control of Goondas Ordinance, 1959.

      [6][(2)  It shall extend to the whole of the province of [7][the Punjab] except the Tribal Areas.]

[8][1-A.   Definitions.— In this Ordinance, unless the context otherwise requires, the following expressions shall have the meanings hereby respectively assigned to them, that is to say—

            (a)  “Government” means the [9][Provincial Government of the Punjab];

            (b)  “prescribed” means prescribed by rules made under this Ordinance; and

            (c)  “Tribunal” means the Tribunal constituted under section 2.]

2.   Constitution of Tribunal.— (1) In every district there shall be a Tribunal[10] to deal with cases under this Ordinance arising within the district.

      (2)  The Tribunal shall consist of the officer holding for the time being the office of the District Magistrate or any magistrate of the first class especially empowered by Government in this behalf.

3.     Powers of Tribunal.— (1) For the purpose of conducting inquiries under this ordinance, the Tribunal shall have all the powers of a District Magistrate under the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898[11], for issuing summons and warrants, for compelling attendance of witnesses and production of documents for the examination of persons complained against and witnesses, and for issuing commissions for the examination of witnesses.

      (2)  Proceedings before the Tribunal shall be deemed to be judicial proceedings.

4.   Contempt proceedings.— The Tribunal shall for purposes of section 480 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898, be deemed to be a court.

5.   Cognizance of cases by Tribunal.— (1) No Tribunal shall take cognizance of a case under this Ordinance unless:-

         (a)   (i)  the person complained against resides, or

               (ii)  the acts mentioned in clauses (a) to (l) of section 13 are alleged to have been committed, within the local limits of its jurisdiction; and

      [12][(b)  The Officer incharge of the police station within the jurisdiction whereof such place as aforesaid lies, or in areas which are not within the jurisdiction of any police station, the Extra Assistant Commissioner within whose jurisdiction such place lies or any other officer authorised in this behalf by the District Magistrate, lays information with the Tribunal under sub-section (2).]

      (2)  The information shall be signed by the police officer concerned and shall briefly set out—

            (a)  the practices with which the person complained against is charged;

            (b)  instances, with details of time and place of such practices;

            (c)  a statement of any relevant general repute in which such person is held and any other ground on which the information is based;

            (d)  names and other particulars of witnesses who will be produced to support the allegations contained in the information; and

            (e)  prayer as regards action to be taken against him.

6.   Summoning of the persons.— On receipt of information under section 5, the Tribunal may summon the person complained against to appear before it, and shall, as soon as he appears before it, supply him with a copy of the information laid against him:

      Provided that the Tribunal may, for reasons to be recorded, in the very first instance or at any later stage of the inquiry, instead of issuing summons, issue a warrant, non-bailable or bailable, in such sum as may appear to it reasonable, for the arrest of the aforesaid person and his production before the Tribunal—

         (i)  if it is satisfied that the said person is hiding himself to evade service of the summons, or

        (ii)  if he does not appear in spite of the service of summons, or

       (iii)  if it is, for any other reason, satisfied that such action is necessary.

7.   Procedure where a person absconds or conceals himself.— If the Tribunal has reason to believe that a person against whom a warrant of arrest has been issued under section 6, has absconded, or is concealing himself so that the warrant cannot be executed, it may—

      (a)  send a report to a magistrate having jurisdiction in the area where the person complained against ordinarily resides or has his property or is present, and the said magistrate shall take proceedings under sections 87, 88 and 89 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898[13], in respect of such person and his property as if the warrant were a warrant issued by the said magistrate; or

      (b)  by order notified in the gazette, direct such person to appear before it, at such place and within such period as may be specified in the order; and if such person omits to comply with the directions, he shall, unless he proves that it was not possible for him to comply therewith and that he had, at the first possible opportunity within the period sent information to the Tribunal of the reason which rendered compliance therewith impossible and of his whereabouts, be deemed to have evaded compliance with the order.

8.   Appearance before Tribunal.— (1) The Tribunal may, when the person complained against appears before it, take from him a bond, with or without sureties, for his appearance during the inquiry or when called upon, as the case may be, and may also, having regard to the nature of the information laid against him, require him to furnish a bond, with one or more sureties, in such sum as the Tribunal may think fit, to be of good behaviour until the conclusion of the inquiry and may direct that he be detained in custody until such bond is executed, or in default of execution, until the inquiry is concluded.

      (2)  The Tribunal may, for reasons to be recorded, instead of taking a bond for the appearance of the person complained against, order his detention till the conclusion of the inquiry in such prison as it thinks suitable:

      Provided that such detention shall not exceed two months unless his case has been referred to the Commissioner and the latter has agreed to such detention.

9.   Joint proceedings.— Where two or more persons are associated together with regard to any matter covered by the allegations contained in the information laid in respect of them, to an extent which in the opinion of the Tribunal justifies such a course, the inquiry into the matter with regard to which they are associated together may be conducted against all, or any of them jointly.

10.    Proceedings before Tribunal.— The Tribunal shall proceed to inquire into the truth or otherwise of the information upon which action has been taken, and for that purpose may record such evidence as may appear necessary, following in all such cases, the procedure prescribed in the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898, for conducting trials and recording evidence in summons cases, but subject to the special provision of this Ordinance.

11.    Tribunal may act on the evidence recorded by its predecessor.— Whenever any Tribunal, after having heard and recorded the whole or any part of the evidence in an inquiry, ceases to exercise jurisdiction therein, and is succeeded by another Tribunal, which has and which exercises such jurisdiction, the Tribunal so succeeding may act on the evidence so recorded by its predecessor or partly recorded by its predecessor and partly recorded by itself or may resummon the witnesses and re-commence the inquiry.

12.    Orders by Tribunal.— [14][(1) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any law for the time being in force, the Tribunal may receive and consider evidence of general repute, of previous convictions, or of previous occasions on which the person complained against was bound over to keep the peace or to be of good behaviour.]

      (2)  The Tribunal may grant immunity from prosecution for any offence other than that of giving false evidence to any witness appearing in any inquiry under this Ordinance in respect of any matter relevant to the inquiry.

      (3)  The Tribunal may direct any magistrate having jurisdiction in the area to take such steps as may be necessary to protect the life and property of any person who has given or is required to give evidence in any inquiry under this Ordinance.

[15][13.  Declaration of goondas.— If the Tribunal is satisfied, as a result of enquiry held under this Ordinance, that the person complained against—

            (a)  keeps or manages a drinking or gambling den or a place where opium or other intoxicating drugs are smoked or otherwise consumed, or makes a livelihood out of such den or place by acting as a tout or otherwise howsoever; or

         (a)  it may require him to furnish a bond, with one or more sureties, for such period not exceeding two years and in such amount as may be specified, to be of good behaviour, provided that, where he is a minor, the bond executed, by a surety or sureties only may be accepted;

         (b)  it may, in view of his age and antecedents, and the fact that some person of mature age, who is in a position of authority over him by virtue of relationship or otherwise, undertakes to become responsible for his good behaviour and executes a bond or other document to the satisfaction of the Tribunal to this effect, release him after due admonition;

         (c)  it may, where he fails to execute the bond or cannot produce a surety or sureties to the satisfaction of the Tribunal, order him to be detained in prison until he executes the bond or until a satisfactory surety or sureties if required, are available, or, failing that, the term of the order under clause (b) expires or until the Tribunal makes any other order about him;

         (d)  it may direct that—

15.    Publication of declaration.— An order under section 13 declaring any person to be a goonda shall be published alongwith a statement of the order or orders, if any, made in respect of such person under section 14, in such manner and containing such details as may be prescribed.[17]

16.    Bond under Tribunal’s order.— (1) Every bond furnished in compliance with an order made by the Tribunal under this Ordinance shall be in the form prescribed by the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898[18], for a bond of the same description:

      Provided that the Tribunal may direct that the sureties offered be scrutinised by a magistrate of the first class nominated for the purpose by it.

      (2)  Any surety may apply to be released from the obligations of his bond, and the Tribunal may, after such enquiry as it may deem fit, call upon the person who is bound over to furnish fresh surety, and thereupon the provisions of sub-section (1) shall apply in relation thereto:

      Provided that the surety seeking release shall not be released from his obligations unless a fresh surety has been accepted in his place or, in case no surety is furnished or accepted, he produces the person concerned before the Tribunal.

      (3)  The Tribunal may, where a person who has furnished a bond for his appearance makes default, direct, in addition to action under the other provisions of this Ordinance, that a warrant which may be bailable or non-bailable as the Tribunal may direct shall be issued for the production of such person.

      (4)  The provisions of section 514 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898[19], shall apply in respect of the forfeiture of bonds furnished under this Ordinance, as if for the expression “Court” the expression “Tribunal” wherever applicable for the purpose of this Ordinance, was substituted, and as if from sub-section (1) of the said section, the reference to a magistrate of first class was omitted, and as if in sub-section (7) of the said section—

             (i)  the reference to section 106 or section 118 or section 562 of that Code was replaced by a reference to clause (a) of sub-section (1) of section 14 of this Ordinance; and

            (ii)  the reference to a bond executed in lieu of the bond under section 514-B of that Code was replaced by a reference to the proviso to clause (a) of sub-section (1) of section 14 of this Ordinance.

      (5)  A breach of any order made against any person under clause (d) or clause (e) of sub-section (1) of section 14, or the further commission of any of the acts mentioned in section 13, or the commission of any offence which is punishable with imprisonment under any law for the time being in force and which in the opinion of the Tribunal involves or implies moral turpitude, shall amount to a breach of a bond for good behaviour which may have been furnished by him under this Ordinance.

17.    Discharge of person informed against.— If, on an inquiry under section 10, it is proved that action under section 13 is not necessary the Tribunal shall make an entry on the record to that effect and if such person is in custody only for the purposes of the inquiry, shall release him, or, if such person is not in custody, shall discharge him.

18.    Appeal against the orders of the Tribunal.— (1) An appeal from an order made by a Tribunal under section 4, section 8, section 13, section 14 or section 16, shall lie to the Commissioner of the Division in which the Tribunal exercises its jurisdiction.

      Provided that the period of limitation for an appeal shall be thirty days from the date of the order.

      (3)  The Commissioner on hearing the appeal may—

            (a)  discharge the person complained against, or

            (b)  dismiss the appeal, or

19.    Revision of Tribunal’s orders.— In relation to any such order under section 4 or section 13, or section 16, the High Court may call for the record of the case, and if the Tribunal or the Commissioner appears—

         (a)  to have exercised a jurisdiction not vested in it by law, or

         (b)  to have failed to exercise a jurisdiction so vested, or

         (c)  to have acted in the exercise of its jurisdiction illegally,

the High Court may make such direction as it may deem sufficient for the rectification of the error or omission and the Tribunal or the Commissioner shall conduct itself, or himself, as the case may be, accordingly.

20.    Photographs, fingerprints, etc.— Every person, in respect of whom an order has been made under section 13 shall, if so directed by the Tribunal present himself before such officer of Government and at such place and time as may be specified in the order—

            (i)  for being photographed,

            (d)  to make recommendations as and when justified by marked improvement in the general behaviour, manner of life and character of any such person, that his name may be removed from any list of goondas maintained under section 13].

[23][22-B.   Action on Probation Officer’s report.— On receipt of a periodical report, or as the case may be, a recommendation from the Probation Officer under section 22-A, the Tribunal may in the case of any goonda, after such inquiry as it may deem necessary, direct—
