The petitioners said though the applications had been submitted to the authorities and the examination fees paid, Bangalore University had not permitted the students to appear for the examination.

Justice Mohan Shantangouder adjourned further hearing on the petitions.

Stayed

Justice Huluvadi G. Ramesh, in an interim order on Monday, stayed till the next date of hearing of proceedings in a lower court in Bangalore against Kannada film actors S. Narayan and T.N. Venkatesh. The court passed the order on petitions by Mr. Narayan and Mr. Venkatesh, both of Basaveshwaranagar in Bangalore, seeking a stay on the proceedings initiated by the 4th Additional City Metropolitan Magistrate (ACCM) against them. The ACMM had taken cognisance of a private complaint by a person and ordered a case to be filed against both of them. Justice Huluvadi G. Ramesh on Monday adjourned further hearing on a petition by a Congress leader from Belgaum district, Shankar Munavalli, urging the court to vacate a stay it had given against a Belgaum court order which is hearing a defamation case against senior BJP leader B.S. Yeddyurappa. Shankar Munavalli had filed a defamation case against Mr. Yeddyurappa after he made derogatory statements against him. Mr. Yeddyurappa had moved the High Court which had granted an interim order staying the Belgaum court proceedings. Mr. Munavalli had filed an application, urging the High Court to vacate the stay.

When the matter came up today, Mr. Munavalli urged the court to vacate the interim order and take up the matter for final hearing. He said the court could also readmit the case to the Belgaum court and ask the parties to address their arguments there.
