#Breaking: Minutes after #PuneCivicBody tells #BombayHC that it has sufficient beds, #CJ Datta asks petitioner counsel to call on helpline number.

Counsel calls helpline number, asks for #VentilatorBed. Official says there are no #Ventilator beds

The counsel for #PMC tells HC that at present five beds are available. He says that officials on cell phone aren't doctors. They can't tell you directly if beds are there or not unless you give all details like name of patient, #oxygen level, symptoms etc

Bench responds - Mr counsel, even if that's the case, the official on helpline didn't sought details either. She just told there are no beds.

Your dashboardshows 27 ventilator beds are available at present.

Bench now asks another counsel to call helpline and give details

IPR cases moved last-minute unfair to other litigants, must stop: Bombay High Court while rejecting interim plea to injunct Zee from using "Plex"
This happens repeatedly, whether it is movie releases or otherwise. It must stop. It is unfair to courts and it is unfair to other litigants waiting their turn. - Justice Gautam Patel
Court: Plex failed to establish its reputation, registrations and sales at least within India.

“In contrast, there is the much greater reputation and standing of Zee amongst subscribers across the length and the breadth of the country

#BMC ne jo todna tha, who tod diya. Now no use of such scathing comments by #BombayHC.

Will HC ask @mybmc to
a) Pay compensation to @KanganaTeam?
b) Make BMC officials pay hefty fines for disobeying court-orders of Not-Demolishing-in-Covid-times?

HC exercise waste of time now!
How @mybmc folks(at behest of @PawarSpeaks @OfficeofUT) hoodwinked the #BombayHC by not appearing before court and demolishing KR's premises at the same time. Vakeel of BMC who appeared later, didn't have copy of petition.
Will HC take any tough action?😎
#BombayHC asked @mybmc to file affidavit and also appear before it, at 3 PM today. Wonder if #BMC officials will oblige or try to get adjournment with various excuses through lawyers/tricks?

After yesterday's stunt, #BMC has NO FACE to show in HC😎

Read Bombay HC order in #ArnabGoswami case. Some thoughts :

1. With respect to FIR on report on Palghar lynching, I tend to agree with reasoning that it may not strictly come under offence of communal incitement, as it was primarily against Congress.…
2. But with respect to FIR on report on migrants gathering in Bandra, I have some disagreements. As per the transcript of the debate recorded in the order, Goswami linked the gathering to a Masjid at Bandra and asked why there was a "pattern" of crowds gathering near mosques.
3. Remember, this was happening in the middle of a vile communal campaign following Tablighi Jamaat issue. Clearly, Goswami was tapping into such communal sentiments. He uses dog whistle codes of 'traitors' 'anti nationals'.
