NGT seeks report on cattle blood flowing into Yamuna

NGT seeks report on cattle blood flowing into Yamuna

The National Green Tribunal today took Delhi government and other civic authorities to task for not ensuring compliance of its order that no blood should directly seep into the Yamuna due to cattle slaughter.

A bench headed by Justice Jawad Rahim directed the AAP government and Delhi Pollution Control Committee to submit a detailed status report on the issue and sought their reply before July 11.

“You people talk of Yamuna and Ganga all the time. We are regularly hearing the cases with regard to pollution in these rivers. We had passed an order in 2015 asking you to ensure that no blood flows in Yamuna. Nothing has happened till date.

That’s not fair,” the bench, also comprising Expert Member Nagin Nanda, said.

The observations came after a self-styled Swami, Om, appearing on behalf of a religious outfit, sought immediate action into the matter saying that the authorities have failed to ensure compliance of the NGT order.

The lawyer appearing for East Delhi Municipal Corporation told the green panel that currently one slaughterhouse was operating in Ghazipur area which has already installed online monitoring system which is linked to Central Pollution Control Board for treating its effluent.

The directions came during the hearing of a plea of the religious grouping, Ojasvi party, which has approached the green panel against the pollution caused to the Yamuna river due to slaughter of cattle.

NGT notice to Centre, Haryana on construction in Gurgaon

The National Green Tribunal today sought the response of the Centre and Haryana government on a plea seeking stay on construction activity by a developer in Gurugram on the ground that the work was being carried out without obtaining prior Environment Clearance (EC).

A bench headed by Justice Jawad Rahim issued notices to the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Haryana government, State Environment Impact Assessment Authority, state pollution control board, Haryana Urban Development Authority, Vatika Limited and others while seeking their reply in two weeks.

The tribunal was hearing a plea filed by environment enthusiast Naresh Kumar Jindal and others claiming that Vatika Limited was carrying out construction activity in 477 acres at “Sector 81, 82, 82A, 83 and 85 at Gurgaon” without obtaining prior EC from State Environnent Assessment Authority under the EIA Notification, 2006.

The plea has sought a stay on the construction and operation on the project where there is no EC obtained by the developer till the final disposal of the case.

The plea, filed by advocates Sanjay Upadhyay and Salik Shafique, said the project proponent was carrying out construction activities in an unscientific manner causing air pollution in Gurugram and extracting ground water illegally from borewells without obtaining requisite permissions and violating the environmental safeguards.

“The construction and expansion of the projects are in full swing and in some cases have also been completed in 477 acres without prior EC. That such projects for which the construction is under progress without requisite Environment Clearances are City Homes, Tranquil Heights, Sovereign Next, Town Square 03, Market Place 1, Maitri Kiran School, Serenity Avenue,” the plea said.

Warner Brothers Moves Bombay HC Seeking Injunction Against Makers Of Movie Guest In London [Read Order]

News May 29, 2017

Nitish Kashyap

Warner Brothers has moved Bombay High Court asking for Panorama Studios Pvt Ltd to be restrained from publishing any material with regard to movie Guest in London, as it is being passed off as a continuation of or having a connection with the movie Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge.

In the said arbitration petition, it is the case of Warner Bros. that there was contractual agreement with the respondents (Panaroma Studios) and in breach of this agreement, the word “atithi’ is being highlighted in promotion of the film.

It is also contended that initially the movie was entitled Atithi in London, which is in breach of the contractual agreement as the respondents had agreed not to use the word in the title.

The title was changed to Guest in London, but according to the petitioners, the word ‘atithi’ is still being highlighted in the trailers and other promotional material for the film.

Dr. Birendra Saraf appeared for the petitioner and Ankit Lohia was appearing for the respondents.

Vacation court of Justice BP Colabawalla accepted the submission made by Ankit Lohia that since the movie is to be released on June 16, there is no urgency. Hence, this matter will now be placed before a regular bench once the court reopens after vacation on June 6.

Court takes cognisance of defamation case against ex-Delhi Min

Court takes cognisance of defamation case against ex-Delhi Min

A Delhi court today took cognisance of a criminal defamation complaint filed by Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain against sacked minister Kapil Mishra for allegedly defaming him by levelling graft charges against him.

Metropolitan Magistrate Shefali Barnala Tandon listed the matter for July 14 for recording pre-summoning evidence in support of complaint of Jain, who was present in the court.

Advocate Gautam Dhamija, appearing for Jain, argued that Mishra had made defamatory statements before the national media.

The counsel alleged that Mishra used his official Twitter handle also to defame Jain and instead of going to any probe agency, he had levelled the allegations before the media to defame the Health Minister.

The court also heard arguments on another defamation complaint by Jain against BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa for alleging that the minister was indulging in circulating huge amounts of illegitimate money within the party.

The court listed the complaint against Sirsa for consideration on June three.

Jain has also accused a media house for publishing the alleged “libellous and slanderous statements” made by Sirsa.

The counsel argued that these allegations were made in front of the national media but only one newspaper published it which shows they were hand in glove with each other.

Jain had on May 19 filed two criminal defamation complaints against Mishra and Sirsa for allegedly defaming him by levelling graft charges against him.

If convicted, the offence of defamation entails a maximum punishment of two years.

Jain in his complaint against Mishra, who was earlier heading the water department, submitted that on May 7, he had made a statement before the media accusing him of handing over bribe of Rs two crore to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on May five.

He said his family members and a lot of people from his constituency had questioned him about the incident which had caused irreparable damage to his reputation.

Regarding Sirsa, Jain said that on May 9, the MLA made libellous statements by levelling corruption allegation against him. He said that making a statement on the basis of “hearsay” without any proof or evidence supporting it, is not only unbecoming of an MLA, but also a crime of defaming a person.

Delhi HC seeks Arnab and Republic reply on Tharoor defamation plea

The Delhi High Court today sought the response of the Arnab Goswami and his newly-launched news channel Republic TV on Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s defamation plea against them.

In his plea, Tharoor has claimed damages and compensation of Rs 2 crore from the journalist and his channel for allegedly making defamatory remarks against him while airing news relating to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

“Bring down the rhetoric. You can put out your story, you can put out the facts. You cannot call him names. That is uncalled for,” Justice Manmohan said while issuing notice to Goswami and the channel and seeking their replies by August 16, the next date of hearing.

Senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for Tharoor, said he should be protected and the channel and the journalist directed to justify the statements made against him.

Senior advocate Sandeep Sethi, appearing for Goswami and the channel, said they would justify each and every statement made by them and therefore, there was no need for any interim order injuncting them.

Tharoor had on May 26 filed a civil defamation suit against Arnab Goswami and Republic TV in the Delhi High Court claiming damages and compensation of Rs two crore for allegedly making defamatory remarks against him while airing news relating to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

The Lok Sabha MP from Thiruvananthapuram has also sought a direction from the high court to restrain the TV channel from broadcasting any show relating to the death of his wife till the investigation is completed by the Delhi Police.

He has referred to the broadcasting of news items from May 8 to 13 when the TV channel claimed to air an expose connected to the death of his wife.
