Legal Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Justice P.Swarup Reddy of the High Court on Monday dismissed the petition filed by TDP leaders seeking bail in the case pertaining to the attack on advocates at Indira Park last week.

The judge indicated that the accused may move the criminal court which has jurisdiction to deal with bail cases. The petitioners said that they could not present the bail petitions as they were not permitted in the trial court.

The judge asked them to file the petition first in the trial court and rejected the petition.

Petition closed

A Division Bench of the High Court comprising Chief Justice Nisar Ahmed Kakru and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar on Monday closed the writ petition seeking a ban on the Telugu feature film ‘High School.'

The petition was filed by Sarangapani complaining that the film had an ‘obscene theme' and should not have been cleared.

After one of the judges saw the film on Saturday the case had come up for hearing and the petitioner said that he was withdrawing the case.

Chief Justice Kakru and Justice Sanjay Kumar also closed the writ petition filed questioning the method of deputation of officers to the State.

Officers' deputation

The writ petition was filed by Murali Krishna before the Bench. He said that without there being any basis some officers were coming to the State from other States and cadres and manning important positions.

The State government on Monday informed the court that rules and guidelines had been framed and a GO had been issued. The Bench recorded the same and closed the case.
