Yenepoya violating HC order: State govt

Students sent by KEA denied admissions

During the hearing of a petition by Vasuda Sankalapur and others challenging the endorsement by the Institute, the counsel for the institute submitted that it had not understood the court order.

But Advocate General Ashok Harnahalli pointed out that the institute was making contradictory statements. While in the endorsement given to students on October 5, the institute had stated that it had not received the Court order, but now it was making a submission that it was unable to understand the order, he said and stressed that it was a deliberate attempt to violate the court order.

He submitted that a contempt case be initiated against the institute. The division bench, headed by Justice Gopalagowda too orally warned the Institute that the matter might be placed before the Chief Justice for contempt proceedings.
On September 29, the court had directed the institute to admit the students selected through the KEA. The petitioners had sought to quash the endorsement issued by the Institute. The matter has been adjourned.

ASI's appeal dismissed
The High Court dismissed an appeal by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) challenging the single judge order related to the termination of 117 archaeologists, who were appointed as casual workers.

The division bench comprising Justice Gopalagowda and Justice Nagarathna upheld the single judge order not to disturb the appointments made in 1984. It did not accept the argument that they were dismissed due to lack of funds.
The ASI, which had appointed the archaeologists on casual basis, had decided to discontinue them in 1989 after the excavation at Hampi was completed.
 In September 2007, Justice Nagmohan Das had directed that the appointments should not be disturbed.
