Justice K Laxman of the Telangana High Court on Tuesday reserved order on the matter pertaining to the transfer of case filed for bail cancellation of AP Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Raghuram Krishna Raju, Member of Parliament sought directions to transfer the case to another CBI Judge.
The arguments in the cancellation of bail were concluded in the month of August and the order is due to be pronounced on September 15. The petitioner pleaded that the Sakshi media has already published that the court has rejected the application for cancellation of bail. There is a chance that the Judge may get influenced. The petitioner apprehends that the judge may not act impartially as the CBI Judge has already granted permission to Vijaya Sai Reddy for travelling abroad.
Continuation of the case before the same judge will cause prejudice, he said. The CBI on the other hand submitted that the grounds raised by the petitioner are not sufficient or seeking relief of transfer of the case to another Court. The Judge after hearing both sides at length reserved the case for orders.
Injuncted businessman from alienating shares
A two-judge panel of the Telangana High Court comprising Acting Chief Justice MS Ramchandra Rao and Justice T Vinod Kumar on Tuesday injuncted businessman Mahendra Agarwal, formerly from Gati Industries Ltd from alienating shares of his in the company. The interim order was made in an appeal filed by his son Dhruv Agarwal complaining that his father owes various sums to a trust of which Dhruv Agarwal is the sole beneficiary.
He contended that if these shares are also alienated, he would be left with no means to recover amounts due from his father in the likelihood of his success in the civil suit. The panel also directed Mahendra Agarwal to detail persons to whomsoever shares were alienated pending the suit. The panel posted the matter to the second week of October for Mahendra Agarwal to file his response.
Official directed to file appeal
The panel granted leave to the President, Managing Committee of the Jubilee Hills Cooperative House Building Society and the Registrar cum Commissioner of Cooperative Societies to file an appeal against an earlier order of a single judge. In the writ petition filed by the Secretary of the Society, Murali Mukund, the single judge of the High Court directed the Registrar to consider the application filed by the Secretary for the appointment of a Special Officer to manage, control and supervise the affairs of the Jubilee Hills co-operative House Building Society Limited. The panel will continue to hear the matter tomorrow. However, it also directed the parties to inform the judge about the hearing of an appeal in case the contempt case is also taken up tomorrow.
Relief to education institute
The panel granted relief to the Joseph Sriharsha and Mary Indraja Educational Society and Saint Marys Group of Institutions Hyderabad. In a case filed by the colleges, the panel held that the last minute intimation of the deficiencies and reducing the number of seats and the number of courses was causing prejudice to the institutions. The reduction in the intake of Btech and BPharma courses and the rejection of affiliation for 4 year new courses in Btech CSE (AI and ML), CSE (Data Science), CSE (Cyber Security) etc were brought to the notice of the court.
They contended that the action of the AICTE in rejecting affiliation and the JNTU in not availing options for the EAMCET qualified students to select the said courses and actual intake seats through online counselling was arbitrary. All the standards have complied, it is the AICTE that has not completed the process the petitioners contended.
After a detailed hearing, the authorities said that they will take all steps to rectify the same by today night and open the options for the petitioners through online counselling for the eligible candidates. The panel will continue to hear the matter tomorrow at 10.30 am.
