Calcutta High Court held: Illegal intrusion of police into Howrah Court premises is violation of Constitution and Laws

The need for a building for a court is fundamental to its existence. Judicial institutions
are the institutions of the national life contemporaneous with the fact that they are the seeds of dispensation of the Judicial Authority under the Constitution and the Laws. Such authority of the Court being inseparable element of the sovereign, unauthorised intrusion into its premises and the activities would stand to breach the Constitution and the Laws. The executive agency of a State, viz., the Government, has the constitutional duty to provide infrastructure for the Courts and also to protect those institutions and premises dedicated for activities in connection with the Courts.
