Delhi-NCR News Highlights: Members of the Tyagi community have gathered outside Noida’s Grand Omaxe society, in support of Shrikant Tyagi. Harinder Tyagi, a protester, said, “We had replaced the plants which were removed earlier. But now we hear they are going to remove them again. If they are going to remove them then they should remove all the encroachments by other families. We are protesting against this.”

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday restrained the Aam Aadmi Party and several of its leaders from levelling “false” allegations against Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena and his family after they claimed that he was involved in a Rs 1,400 crore scam. The LG had approached the Delhi High Court on September 22 seeking an interim injunction restraining the Aam Aadmi Party and its members from publishing, commenting, or issuing any information through tweets, articles, and interviews or in any other manner to the public with respect to allegations of corruption and money laundering made against the LG.

Meanwhile, an evacuation alert has been declared in vulnerable areas as the water level in the Yamuna River breached the danger mark in Delhi. According to officials, the water level rose to 206.16 metres following the incessant rainfall in the catchment areas.

Amanatullah case: Judge poses tough questions to investigators; prosecution invokes Hansie Cronje

Hearing AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan’s bail plea on Tuesday, a Delhi judge posed some tough questions to the anti-corruption branch, asking what exactly was the loss in the case of alleged irregularities in the Delhi Waqf Board case and what was the criminality involved.

Special Judge Vikas Dhull is expected to pass his order on the bail plea on Wednesday.

During the hearing, the judge asked questions on the allegations that some properties under the board have been rented out “arbitrarily” and that the “benefit” is being reaped by Khan and those close to him.

When the prosecution was trying to explain why it had invoked the pertinent sections against Khan, the judge, while dealing with the question of misappropriation of funds, said, “This misappropriation? How it has come to him (Khan)? Did you take statement of those people that he took the money (from)?” the judge said.

Additional Public Prosecutor Atul Shrivastava, who appeared on behalf of the agency, chose to cite the example of former South African cricketer Hansir Cronje’s match fixing scandal to argue that even though money may not have been cheated but “cheating was made out” since people purchased tickets to “watch a match which was fixed”. Anand Mohan J reports

Saplings being planted in bulk to achieve targets, no record of survival: Plea in Delhi HC

The Delhi High Court Tuesday issued notices to the Delhi government, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and Delhi Development Authority (DDA) in a public interest litigation (PIL), which states that bulk/single-day plantations are done by public authorities in the national capital to “achieve numerical targets”. The plea seeks an SIT probe to ascertain the number and kind of saplings planted in Delhi in the last five years, the costs incurred, and the survival.

The counsel for the petitioner, Akash Vashishtha, argued that none of the agencies that conducted plantations were maintaining proper records regarding the species, numbers, exact areas, geotagged locations, costs involved and survival.

“No information pertaining to the plantations are made publically available on their websites, not allowing a common citizen to view such important information and participate or to provide feedback. The grim survival rate is primarily because of the wrong method, single-day bulk plantations; invasive species are planted instead of native ones which is destroying the city’s biodiversity,” Vashishtha submitted. Malavika Prasad reports
