Hearing the petition by Empire Group of Hotels, the division bench headed by Chief Justice P D Dinakaran has posted the matter for final hearing.

Direction to police

The High Court on Wednesday directed the Nelamangala police to maintain law and order around Jindal Aluminium Limited on Tumkur Road.

Hearing a petition by the company, which had moved the High Court over the State’s inaction against the Kannada Sene Karnataka (KSK) for allegedly threatening its employees, Justice Ajit Gunjal disposed of the petition after the Nelamangala police filed an affidavit assuring protection.
