HC quashes Comed-K rule

The High Court of Karnataka on Monday quashed a Comed-K rule, which stipulated that 50 per cent marks in English should be considered for ranking list.

Students from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh had moved the court challenging the rule. A division of Justices N Kumar and G Narender quashed the rule and directed the authorities to consider the candidates for admission on the basis of the marks they have secured in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Petition disposed of
The High Court has disposed of the criminal petition filed by cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in connection with a case against him before a magistrate court.

The counsel for Dhoni submitted an affidavit stating that he had not received any money for the picture published by A business magazine on April 14, 2013. The court granted him time till September 14, 2015 to file the revision application before the sessions court. 

Jayakumar Hiremath, a city-based activist, had filed a case against Dhoni and others for “hurting Hindu sentiments” by publishing a photo of Dhoni as Lord Vishnu holding many products in his hands.
