Six new senior advocates were designated in the Jharkhand high court, including Jharkhand bar council chairman Rajiv Ranjan, on 29 April.
The other five newly designated seniors in the high court are Birendra Kumar Poddar, Raj Nandan Sahay, Anil Kumar, Sanjiv Kumar and Ajit Kumar, according to a notification on the high court’s website.
The Bombay high court also had a round on 8 May in which seven new seniors were designated.
"Yes I have recommended saying it is a fit case for appeal” for the Karnataka government special prosecutor BV Acharya, who was responsible for getting the initial trial court verdict against J Jayalalithaa, told the Times of India as well as the Hindu Businessline.
Acharya had said earlier this week after the Karnataka high court had set aside Jayalalithaa’s conviction that an appeal was likely because the prosecution had not been allowed to make oral arguments.
In addition, there were several other potential issues with the judgment, including potentially questionable arithmetic.
The PTI reported:
In a fresh order against DLF, Competition Commission has found the realty giant guilty of indulging in “unfair and abusive” business practices in sale of apartments in a Gurgaon housing project.
CCI has asked DLF Gurgaon Home Developers Private Limited and its group companies to “cease and desist” from such unfair trade practices, but did not impose any fresh monetary penalty as Rs 630 crore fine has already been slapped on DLF for similar violation during the same period in a separate case.
