The issuance of a warrant of arrest becomes all the more serious, when the petitioner was not put to any notice of the pending proceedings.”It may be noted that apprehending the possibility of arrest following the order of the Special CBI court, Jyotsana Suri, the Managing Director of the Bharat Hotels Ltd, filed a plea in the High Court which was being heard on Tuesday (22nd September) by the Bench of Justice Dinesh Mehta.It was submitted by the Counsel for the petitioner in the High Court that without even putting her on notice or issuance of summons by the Special Court, the issuance of an arrest warrant directly was bad in the eyes of Law.Senior counsel PP Chaudhary and Harish Salve were representing Jyotsana Suri before the Court.Mr. Ashish Guha was represented by Mr. Sanjiv Sen, Senior Advocate assisted by team of Karanjawala & Company Advocates, led by Senior Partner Mr. Sandeep Kapur, Mr. Vir Sandhu, Mr. Vivek Suri, Mr. Abhimanshu Dhyani, Mr. Sahil Modi and Mr. Anirudh Singh Shekhawat, Advocates.It was argued before the Court that the CBI itself had submitted before the Court that, since there was no evidence of illegality, the case against the accused should be closed.In these circumstances, it was contended, the special court was not justified to reject the closure report filed by CBI without any sound basis.The Bench observed,”While issuing an arrest warrant, Court below has not recorded any finding as to why petitioner’s custodial interrogation is required, particularly when all the relevant documents are on the record of the Court below and the transaction dates back to the year 2001, when she was not at the helm of affairs of the Company.”Apart from this, the Bench also ordered that the possession of the property, be given back to the private company that ran it. In fact, the possession of the hotel was handed over by the special CBI court to the state government on September 16.The Court also ordered that the petitioner shall not be arrested in pursuance of the arrest warrant issued in relation to the impugned order dated 15.09.2020 passed by Special Judge, CBI Cases, Jodhpur and that the petitioner shall appear before the Court below on 08.10.2020 and furnish a personal bond of Rs.5 lacs and two sureties of Rs.2.5 lacs each.Notably, the court’s decision is the outcome of the petitions filed by Jyotsna Suri, former disinvestment secretary Pradeep Baijal and then managing director of investment firm Lazard India Limited, Ashish Guha. Similar orders were passed in the pleas of Pradeep Baijal & Ashish Guha.Significantly, Arun Shourie has also filed a similar plea before Rajasthan HC, which will come up for Court’s Consideration on Wednesday (23rd September).CBI Court’s OrderIt may be noted that a special court at Jodhpur had asked the CBI on 16th September to file cases against former Union minister Arun Shourie and the then disinvestment secretary Pradip Baijal over the sale of an ITDC hotel, allegedly at a loss of Rs 244 crore to the exchequer.The CBI court had also directed the filing of cases against three others associated with the sale two decades back of Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel in Udaipur, during the term of the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre.Along with Shourie and Baijal, the court had ordered the registration of cases against Ashish Guha, the managing director of Lazard India Ltd who was the financial adviser, valuer Kantilal Karamsey of Kantilal Karamsey & Company and Jyotsana Suri, director of Bharat Hotels Ltd.The court had also observed that the investigating officer had accepted in the probe that Laxmi Vilas Hotel was undervalued, and he should have presented a chargesheet. The court ordered that a criminal case be registered against Shourie and the others. It had also summoned the accused via arrest warrants.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgThe Faculty of History has backed down from changes to exam regulations which would have moved forward thesis deadlines, after students expressed their anger at the attempt to pass the changes in the middle of the exam season.The faculty wished to change the deadlines for submission of thesis titles and synopses, claiming that the current set-up “does not leave enough time for the FHS [Final Honour School] Board of Examiners to find markers with the appropriate expertise”.Students overwhelmingly rejected the proposed changes, while also expressing their anger at the faculty for giving them only two days to respond “in a time of immense pressure”. History freshers are currently engaged in prelims and second-years in the middle of a ten-day coursework examination.An anonymous Oxfess had urged first and second year historians to object to the proposed changes. It said: “What this email is essentially asking you to do, on incredibly (conveniently) short notice, is to consent to having less time to come up with your thesis proposal, and to make it more difficult to change your thesis proposal once you have come up with it.“It doesn’t benefit any of us to consent to this last-minute and disorganised change, and the only thing that’s good about it is that the history faculty requires our consent in the first place. If they want to institute faculty wide changes they need to give us due notice and give us due time to reply, not simply try and impose them upon us in a time of immense pressure anyway.”The Faculty of History’s undergraduate officer, Andrea Hopkins, told students in an email: “Many thanks to those of you who responded to the consultation in spite of the awkward timing.  I do apologise for bothering you during your exams, but the deadline for getting exam reg changes gazetted is this Friday, so I had to do it.“However, there was an overwhelming majority who did not consent to the proposed changes, so we will not be going ahead with them.”last_img read more

first_img The 31-year-old saw his first-half free-kick deflect in off Daniel Sturridge to put relegation-threatened Saints on course for an invaluable 3-1 victory at St Mary’s – his 13th of the season, making him the top English scorer in the Barclays Premier League. Lambert said: “I am still pinching myself. I am really enjoying the season.” With talk of a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s national side, it is a far cry from the beetroot factory he worked in little over a decade ago and the years spent plying his trade in the lower leagues. “Obviously there have been some lows but the highs have been unbelievable and I am confident there are plenty more to come in my career, hopefully at Southampton. It is going really well but we’re still not safe, there are still points to be taken, but the lads are absolutely buzzing after that result. I think everybody knows the relationship I have with Liverpool. “It was a massive game and my family were there, but obviously I am professional and my main focus was to try and get three points. I am just over the moon that my goal helped get three points.” It is a victory that gives Southampton a seven-point cushion over the drop zone ahead of Sunday’s fixtures. “It was massively important that we got the three points,” Lambert said. “I think we have been unlucky these last few weeks and deserved a few more points than what we’ve got. “But I don’t really like saying that, I am just happy to say we got the three points. You can say all day that you’re unlucky and that, but it is the points that matter and we managed to get the points along with a great performance, which is even better.” The defeat of Liverpool was a relief for Southampton as all too often their performances have not been rewarded with points. Saints have been praised for the high pressing game employed since Mauricio Pochettino replaced Nigel Adkins, although the win over Liverpool was just his second in eight matches at the helm. Liverpool fan Rickie Lambert is “still pinching himself” after his impressive first season in the top-flight continued as Southampton overcame his boyhood club.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
