Prasant Karmakar plea seeking an immediate stay on suspension: Delhi High Court issues notice

Delhi High Court released an announcement on 30 September 2020, requesting the immédiate stay on a plea moved by Arjuna Awardee international para-swimmer, Prasanta Karmakar who sought a stay on his suspension.

After filming female swimmers at the country’s last year’s national championships, in 2018 the swimmer was disqualified. The swimming coach probably asked an associate to do the filming. It was stated that he himself reportedly took photos of female swimmers on a tripod with a camera. He also clashed with officials of the Indian Paralympics Committee (PCI) and refused to remove the images.

A one-Judge Court bench Jyoti Singh issued a notice and sought a response from the respondents within a week while listening to the matter via Video Conference. The petition was submitted to the Paralympic Committee of India for the entry of Karmakar for the IWAS World Games, 2020, so that he can meet the minimum qualitation requirements (MQS), the requirement for a swimmer’s participation in the Tokyo Paralympics. The demand was made by advocates Amit Kumar Sharma and Satyam Singh Rajput from Karmakar’s side.

All you need to know about the Babri Masjid demolition case, a timeline

The case against some BJP, RSS, VHP leaders, and Kar Sevaks, to demolish the Mosque on 6 December 1992, is now in its final stage as the question of Ayodhya’s Title Dispute was resolved by a Superior Court of India in November 2019.

10,160 days after the demolition of the Babri Masjid, a special CBI court today delivered its judgment in the criminal case in Lucknow.

On 19 July 2019, the Supreme Court extended the term of tenure of the special judge who heard the demolition case. The Court claimed that the extension of the Special Judge’s term, which was due to retire on 30 September, would be solely to complete the trial and give a verdict on the case. The Supreme Court also ordered the judge to deliver its judgment in nine months.

In both cases, the CBI filed a combined charge sheet on 5 October 1993, including the FIR 198. More people were accused, including Bala Saheb Thackeray, Kalyan Singh, Champat Rai Bansal, Dharam Das, Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, and others, were listed in this charge sheet.

In the plot of the CBI, a secret meeting was held one day before the masjid was pulled down, at the residence of Vinay Katiyar, leader of the Bajrang Dal, “where a final decision had been taken to demolish this contested structure.” Advani and the seven other leaders were present in this meeting.
