The Madras High Court Tuesday disposed of a petition challenging a special CBI court order fixing Wednesday for framing of charges in a case of setting up of "illegal" telephone exchanges by the Maran brothers and others.
Appearing for the petitioner, senior advocate P Wilson argued that reservation was introduced in the interest of communities that are socially and educationally backwards. The state cannot introduce new economic criteria, he said.
The raid was undertaken in October last year by an inspector from the Neelankarai police station. The petitioner alleged she was not informed on what ground she was taken and kept at the government home for 26 days.
The advocates -- George Williams and Krishnamoorthy -- moved an urgent motion about the blood transfusion and sought the court to take suo motu cognisance of the issue. Williams submitted he would like to bring the matter to the notice of the court and was not willing to file any petition.
Admitting a batch of appeals from Netmeds Marketplace Ltd and others challenging the December 17 order, a bench comprising Justice M Sathyanarayanan and Justice P Rajamanickam also agreed to extend its suspension till the orders were pronounced on the interim plea for stay.
