Hyderabad: Justice Nooty Ramamohana Rao of the High Court on Monday admitted writ petition challenging the government’s action dropping proceedings against Kamaruddin, engineer in Tribal Welfare Department and a close relative of Jannat Husain, an officer in the CMO.

The writ petition was filed by Narender Reddy who claimed that he was the contractor who suffered in the hands of the delinquent officer. The petitioner wondered how proceedings could be dropped against the officer who was indicted on various occasions. After perusal of the records, the Judge ordered notices to the government to file counter affidavit while admitting the case.
