Fake ID Row
The arrest of a Keralite in the national capital with a fake identity card of DRDO seems to be creating ripples in the Kerala BJP. Since the arrest of Arun P Raveendran, who allegedly cheated people with his fake identity as a defence scientist, different factional leaders in Kerala BJP have been providing information to the party’s central leadership. A section of leaders alleged that Raveendran, who was apparently a regular visitor at BJP and RSS circles in Delhi, was in touch with some senior party leaders in Kerala and now they were trying to protect him. Although the central leadership does not seem convinced, the youth wing of LJD in Kerala has demanded a detailed probe into it.
The Supreme Court announced it would take a short two-week summer break starting next week. In the first week of vacation, only a couple of division benches (two-judge benches) along with an in-chambers bench and a registrar’s court will hear urgent cases. In the second week, two benches will sit on June 30 and July 3 to conduct hearings through video-conferencing. The court said this arrangement was made to meet the demands of justice and hear matters of urgent nature during the rescheduled summer vacation.
