Hyderabad: Justice Vijaysen Reddy of the Telangana High Court on Thursday ordered notice to the government and civic authorities in a writ plea challenging the conduct of the Sunday-Funday programme near Charminar. The writ petition was filed by Syed Tarak Quadri, a practising advocate. He complained that people meeting in such large numbers and the noise created by the music band would cause serious damage to the archaeological monument. He also said that the area had been declared as a prohibited zone by the Archaeological Department and such an action would jeopardise the heritage structure, Charminar.
Demolition order suspended
Justice K Lakshman of the Telangana High Court admitted a writ plea on the question as to whether a municipality can order demolition of alleged illegal structures without affording an opportunity to the owner of the premises. The judge was dealing with a writ plea filed by the owners of Prashanti Hospital in Hanamkonda, Warangal. It was alleged that the hospital authorities carried out constructions within the premises contrary to the sanctioned plan. P Lakshmi, counsel for the Warangal Municipality, pointed out that there was no statutory requirement for grant of notice and the petitioners were bound to voluntarily demolish the structures within seven days. The Judge admitted the writ petition and suspended the order for demolition.
No changes in conditions of bail
Justice Sri Devi of the Telangana High Court refused to alter the conditions of bail granted to Y Rakesh. Petitioner arrayed as accused in connection with Bhainsa communal incident that happened in March 2021. The petitioners Y Rakesh and others were alleged to have committed offences under the Indian Penal Code leading to communal disharmony in Nirmal. A bail was granted on condition that the petitioner shall not enter Bhainsa till the chargesheet is filed. In the present petition seeking change in conditions, it was contended that the prosecution was delaying filing of chargesheet and affecting their right to go to their residence or place of work. The judge rejected the plea to permit their re-entry into Bhainsa till the chargesheet is filed.
