Complete joint survey in two weeks: High Court

A division bench comprising Chief Justice P D Dinakaran and Justice V G Sabhahit, while hearing a contempt petition moved by Narayana Reddy observed that sufficient time had already been granted to conduct the survey, so far.

Narayana Reddy, in a petition, had alleged encroachment and alteration of State’s borders in Thumti village of Sandur in Bellary district, by Obalapuram Mining Company, owned by Tourism Minister Janardhan Reddy. The court had directed a joint survey by Indian Bureau of Minerals and Survey of India to look into the allegation. Narayana Reddy filed a contempt plea when the survey was delayed. The government submitted that the joint survey has already begun and sought three more months time. However, the bench refused to grant more time and directed to complete the survey within two weeks.

Hearing adjourned

The HC on Thursday adjourned the hearing of the contempt petition against the government in connection with the language policy to July 27, following the Supreme Court’s stay order.

The Court was hearing a contempt petition by Karnataka Unaided School Management Association and others,  against the Government, after they were denied registration of English as medium instruction. The State government had submitted that the matter was coming up for hearing before the SC on July 24 and sought to adjourn the matter. The division bench, which heard the matter adjourned it to July 27.
