Manipur High Court Utilizes ChatGPT for Research in Service Dispute

The Manipur High Court recently disclosed its use of ChatGPT for research in a case involving the removal of a Village Defence Force (VDF) personnel [Md Zakir Hussain v. State of Manipur].

Justice A Guneshwar Sharma employed the artificial intelligence tool to assist in overturning the disengagement of the VDF member. Initially, the Court sought clarification from the government counsel on the grounds under which such disengagement could be ordered. When no satisfactory response was provided, the judge turned to Google and ChatGPT for answers.

“In these circumstances, this Court is compelled to do extra research through Google and ChatGPT 3.5 and collected some important information,” the judge stated in the order.

With AI assistance, the Court found that the VDF in Manipur was created to bolster local security and support the police in maintaining law and order, particularly in rural areas. Established under the Manipur Police, the VDF comprises local community volunteers trained and equipped to protect villages from threats, including insurgent activities and ethnic violence.

The Court further noted that after successful training and passing the necessary assessments, candidates are officially appointed as VDF members and assigned duties alongside the police force.

During its research, the Court discovered an Office Memorandum (OM) issued by the Home Department of Manipur, which outlined the service conditions for VDF personnel. This OM mandated that a show cause notice be issued to VDF personnel to explain any charges against them before any disengagement.

The Court concluded that the disengagement order violated principles of natural justice and thus ordered the immediate reinstatement of the petitioner.

Advocate Ajmal Hussain represented the petitioner, while Government Advocate Shyam Sharma appeared for the State.
