The said direction is given by the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad in a PIL seeking more private hospitals in Delhi to treat COVID-19 patients. The Petitioner had also asked for a direction to be issued to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, as well as to the Health Department of the Delhi Government, for allowing more number of pathological laboratories in Delhi for testing suspected COVID-19 persons. The Petitioner had submitted that that as per the recent reports in the press, there are approximately 10,000 patients of COVID-19 in Delhi alone, but there are not enough hospitals for providing medical facilities to the citizens. It was further informed by the Petitioner that while the Delhi Government has allowed certain private hospitals and private labs to treat and test COVID19 patients, the numbers are not enough considering the spike in cases. Appearing for the Union of India, ASG Maninder Acharya informed the court that the Centre has framed norms for all the State Governments that are required to be followed for declaring a hospital as a COVID Hospital and ICMR has also laid down Guidelines for permitting private pathological laboratories to undertake tests for COVID-19 suspected persons. Ms Acharya further submitted that there are 13 Government pathological labs and 15 private labs in Delhi that are permitted to test COVID-19 suspected persons. Appearing for the Delhi Government, Mr Anuj Agarwal submitted that as per the revised Guidelines, very mild/pre-symptomatic patients can go into self-isolation if they have adequate facilities at their residence and only if serious signs or symptoms emerge as specified in the Guidelines, should the patient be taken to a hospital. Mr Agarwal further informed the court that the Delhi Government has designated 9 more private and 3 more government hospitals as facilities for treating COVID19 patients. At this point, the court disposed of the petition by noting that there’s no need to interfere in the present matter.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde said that Mumbai police be allowed to do the job and if there is something, then a plea be filed before the Bombay High Court.”Go to Bombay High Court if you have anything concrete to show,” the court said while dismissing the PIL.Rajput, aged 34, was found dead in his apartment in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14 and since then the Mumbai police has been probing the case keeping in mind various angles.Rajput’s father, on July 25, had lodged the FIR at Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna against Chakraborty and six others, including her family members, accusing them of abetting the actor”s suicide. It led Chakraborty to rush to the top court to seek transfer of Patna FIR to Bandra in Mumbai.Next Storylast_img read more

Recognition to NBSA would also strengthen the News Broadcasting Standards Regulations and the penalties mentioned herein could be made more stringent”, advances the affidavit.It is further urged that the amenability to NBSA mechanism should be made a term of the uplinking/downlink information for news channels, and the orders made, if any, against the new broadcaster may be considered by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting at the time of granting renewal of such permission.News Broadcasters’ Association has filed a new affidavit before SC IN @SudarshanNewsTV matter requesting SC to officially give recognition for “independent Self-Regulatory mechanism” so as to make all news channels, members or otherwise, duty bound to follow its directives pic.twitter.com/Jc7Kt3p4Zk— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) September 20, 2020 The affidavit, through Advocate Rahul Bhatia asserts that the manner in which the independent self-regulatory adjudicatory body, NBSA, adjudicates upon complaints received from viewers/aggrieved persons in respect of the programmes telecast by the member broadcasters has already been furnished. However, in view of the fact that not all news broadcasters/news channels come within the jurisdiction of the NBSA, the NBSA has made the above suggestions to make the self-regulatory body and mechanism more effective and to give it more teeth.During the hearing of the case against Sudarshan News TV’s controversial show, the Supreme Court had on Friday chided the News Broadcaster’s Association (NBA) over its laxity in enforcing its own regulations.Justice D Y Chandrachud, the presiding judge of the bench, called the NBA ‘toothless’.”Do you watch TV or not? Why have you not controlled what is going on in the news”, the judge asked NBA’s lawyer, Advocate Nisha Bhambhani.Bhambhani replied that the NBA has improved significantly and has made several channels apologize during airtime for violating the norms on the reports. The counsel also informed the bench that all channels are not its members.Seemingly unsatisfied with the response, the bench said that it wanted stronger regulation by the NBA.”One thing you can do is come back to us on a method to strengthen NBA, so that you have a higher regulatory content. You have a few members and your regulations cannot be implemented. You need to tell us how it can be strengthened”, Justice Chandrachud said.A bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and K M Joseph was hearing the plea which alleged that the show ‘Bindas Bol’ hosted by Suresh Chavhanke, the Editor-in-Chief of Sudarshan News, was communalizing the entry of Muslims into the civil services. On September 15, the top court had stayed the telecast of the show after making a prima facie observation that ‘the object intent and the purpose of the show was to vilify the Muslim community’.Click Here To Download Affidavit[Read Affidavit] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Picture clicked from today’s celebrations as I am also fasting, meanwhile another FIR filed against me, Pappu Sena in Maharashtra seems to be obsessing over me….”Advocate Ali seeks consent to initiate contempt under Section 15 of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 and Section 5C of the Bombay High Court Rules, 1960. He has already filed a criminal complaint against the 33-year-old actor before the Andheri Magistrate Court for allegedly causing disharmony between Hindus and Muslims and for allegedly mocking the judiciary. The lawyer has sought FIR to be registered against the actor under Sections 121, 124A, 153A, 153B, 295A, 298, and 505 of the Indian Penal Code. The lawyer has alleged that both Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel have been “maliciously spreading/promoting enmity between different groups on the grounds of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony in the country by way of mischievously and spitefuly posting frivolous, derogatory and defamatory posts with the intent to outrage religious feelings of a class by insulting its religion or religious feelings/sentiments more specifically against Islam, Muslims.”Tweets by Kangana on “Mumbai turning into Pakistan Occupied Kashmir” and by Rangoli about “shooting mullas and secular media” have been referred to by the advocate who has also attached all the tweets as exhibits in the letter sent to the Advocate General.The letter also states-“It is pertinent to note that the said malicious tweets have defamed our country, its police, authorized government bodies, executive machineries all being established by the laws in India and have created serious ruckus in the country which has not just hurt my feelings but have also hurt the emotions, and feelings of Mumbai police, its retired officers, Mumbaikars, Maharashtrians and all the fellow countrymen. Kanagana Ranaut has been continuously creating fear and panic in the minds of the people of the country, more specifically, Mumbaikars by indirectly or directly terming it as terrorist spot/hub.It is imperative to also note that Kanagana Ranaut has no respect for law of the land, she has been time and again vehemently with malafide intentions and ulterior motives creating the hatred atmosphere in the country amongst Hindus and Muslims, thereby causing serious threat to the integrity of the country.” Click Here To Download Letter[Read Letter]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
