She submitted that in fact at present no fruitful purpose would be served, as there exists no such likelihood of this detenu in involving any activities of smuggling. In view of ground No.(iv) raised in the Petition, she further submitted that t .....

She, therefore, urged before us that as the live link between the issuance of the detention order and its execution is snapped, the detention order may be quashed and set aside. 7.
