Setback To Kejri, HC Refuses to Stay Centre’s Notification


New Delhi: Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to stay two notifications of the Centre which had taken away the power of the city government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) to prosecute officials of Union government, saying a vacation court cannot grant the relief sought by a fresh PIL.

A bench of justices S Muralidhar and IS Mehta said as the issue was already before a regular bench, it being a vacation court will not pass any orders at this stage and tagged the PIL with another petition filed by a law student, who has also challenged the notifications.
