Corrections and clarifications

* * The caption of the PTI photograph in a report “Oil prices likely to be cut again: Sonia” (January 28, 2009) was “Railway Minister Lalu Prasad, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi during the inauguration of the rail coach factory at Lalganj in Rae Bareily on Tuesday.” Only the foundation stone was laid.

* * The seventh paragraph of a report “Woman sets 3 on fire at Erwadi” (January 26, 2009) said that “‘An enquiry would be conducted,’ K.A. Senthil Velan told The Hindu.” There was no indication who he was. The reference is to Mr. Senthil Velan, Superintendent of Police, Ramanathapuram. The designation was left out while filing the report.

* * “Corrections and Clarifications” (January 23, 2009) carried a clarification on “lunch motion”. The revised clarification should be: Matters requiring urgent hearing will be ‘mentioned’ before the Judge concerned by the advocate appearing for the petitioner during morning or after lunch, before commencement of the hearing of the listed cases. When such a mention is made in the morning, depending on the urgency, the Judge may permit the hearing of the matter immediately after lunch on the same day. This is called ‘lunch motion’. Matters less urgent may be permitted to be listed for hearing the next day or thereafter. In the Madras High Court, though there is no regular mentioning every day, the practice mentioned is followed.
