Delhi High Court lifts stay; Pvt hospitals in Delhi will again have to reserve 80% ICU beds for Covid
Soon the private hospitals in Delhi would have to provide Covid patients with 80% of their ICU beds. The Delhi High Court lifted its previous stay in the Delhi government.
The High Court of Delhi took the view that the situation in Delhi was diluted. In order to resolve the situation, the appellant (Delhi Govt.) must place his hand on the pulse of the city. When the cases were half what is happening now the previous order was passed.
In its order, the Delhi High Court observed: a Blanket order was implemented three months ago, which may not help non-COVID patients seeking vital care by directing a reservation of 80% of their ICU bed to COVID patients. The Delhi government counsel said that as the number of cases increase, the current situation needs to have more ICU beds and that they will implement the required measures towards total deficiency.”
The court was told by additional solicitor general Sanjay Jain that of the 10,000 beds, 2000 beds are operational because no one is ready to go to Radha Soami Beas Satsang.
The bench investigated the number of patients who have been taken from government hospitals from the ambulance facility to Radha Soami Beas Satsang because of a lack of beds to see if the Delhi Government has developed helpdesks outside state hospitals.
Court orders video examination of poet-activist Varavara Rao to assess his health situation
Judges S. S. Shinde and Madhav J. Jamdar of the Bombay High Court listened to the bail plea of the poet-activist Dr. Varavara Rao seeking medical release and ordered a video analysis by a team of doctors to determine his health condition.
After last month the Supreme Court had asked the Chief Justice of the High Court in Mumbai to hear an earlier bail plea before the Court, Pendyala Hemlatha, a wife of the 81-year-old poet-activist, had moved a court demanding a medical bail for reasons pending.
For the activist, the senior lawyers Indira Jaising stated to the court that the petitioner’s condition is day by day worsening. “Senior Advocate Mihir Desai had been called by Fr Stan Swamy to notify him of the worsening of the condition of Rao. Please be conscious that there are basic health and life rights of the accused beyond the scope of the claims.” She submitted that the basic right of the accused’s welfare was not compromised by the prosecution. The petitioner also sought his medical attention at Taloja Jail in Nanavati Hospital.
District Judge, Mathura, to hear claim plea for Krishna Janam Bhoomi on Nov 18
A District Judge’s court in Uttar Pradesh will hear an appeal for the demolition of the Eidgah Mosque of the 17th century next to Lord Krishna’s birthplace in Mathura. On 11 November, a court appeal was lodged by the All India Body of Priests and a social organization, to become parties in the case.
All Indian Tirtha Purohit Mahasabha and Mathur Chaturvedi Parishad condemned the application in two District Judge applications, in which they argued the possibility of creating community unrest in the region, for removing the Royal Eidgah Mosque constructed in Katesh Keshave Dev Temple.
This petition was previously lodged on behalf of Lord Shri Krishna Virajaman by Ranjana Agnihotri and five others. She said that the mosque was built at the birthplace of Lord Krishna on the temple’s campus, 13.37 acres and that she requested its removal.
Later, the petition was denied by the lower court after which the petitioners rejected the order by the district court. The appeal was brought before District Judge Sadhana Rani Thakur, who will hear the case on 18 November.
