Patna: Patna High Court on Friday admitted a batch of writ petitions challenging the validity of Bihar Special Court Act, 2009 and Bihar Special Court Rules, 2010 which provides for confiscation of properties of public servants who accumulate wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Rekha M Doshit and Justice Jyoti Sharan admitted the writ applications and posted the matter for hearing on November 18, 2010.

Former state Director General of Police Narayan Mishra was among the petitioners who moved the court challenging the enactment of the state Special Court Act and the rules framed thereafter giving legal right to the state government to confiscate the wealth accumulated by public servants which are disproportionate to their or one's known sources of income.
