This was in connection with the FIR at VP Road police station.It was argued on behalf of Thakkar that such a condition affects his fundamental right to freedom of speech. If the condition is not relaxed, it will cause a lot of hardship to the applicant, Thakkar’s counsel argued. He relied upon the decisions of the Supreme Court in Dattaram Singh Vs State Of Uttar Pradesh & Anr and Rajib Sharma Vs State Of West Bengal & Ors.The Additional Public Prosecutor objected to the said application on the ground that it can be fatal to the prosecution as investigation has not been concluded yet. Finally, the Court observed- “If considered the nature of offence, date of passing the bail order, i.e. 10.11.2020 and the present date, I am of the view that no prejudice will be caused to the prosecution if the prayer made by the accused for relaxing the condition which restrain him from operating his Twitter account till further order is relax because the alleged evidence on the basis of it the crime against the accused was registered is with the prosecution.”Thus, allowing the application, ACMM Nerlikar relaxed the impugned bail condition.On November 16, the Supreme Court refused to entertain an Article 32 petition filed by Thakkar for transfer and consolidation of investigation in the FIRs pertaining to his tweets against the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and other Cabinet Ministers.However, on the same day, the Magistrate at Esplanade Court granted bail to Thakkar in relation to the FIR registered at BKC Cyber police station.On July 1, 2020, a complaint came to be filed against Thakkar at Nagpur by one Nitin Tiwari, a Shiv Sena functionary for allegedly posting some objectionable tweets against Uddhav Thackeray. Another complaint came to be filed against the petitioner for allegedly posting some objectionable tweets, with VP Road Police Station, Mumbai by Dharmendra Mishra, who is an Advocate and also a Shiv Sena functionary. Another complaint was filed at BKC Cyber Cell. FIRs were registered in all the above complaints for offences under provisions of IPC and IT Act.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Story

I can’t afford to risk all the players. The squad will get a chance.“No disrespect, we’re playing MK Dons – they’re a good side, I’m seen them this year – but whichever team we put out I should have a squad here capable of beating them.“If they can’t beat MK Dons then we’ve got a problem with the rest of our squad. We should be able to beat them.”Esteban Granero and Armand Traore are fit again after injuries but Loic Remy has a hamstring problem, Junior Hoilett remains sidelined and Ryan Nelsen is not being considered for today’s game.Click here for our QPR v MK Dons 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Embed from Getty ImagesChris Hughton has denied reports that Brighton have made a move to try to sign Moussa Dembele from Celtic.The striker has been linked with a number of clubs since joining the Glasgow side from Fulham.Speaking after his team’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea, Seagulls boss Hughton insisted no approach had been made by his club for Dembele.“Certainly as the manager of the football club I’m sure I would know, but there certainly has not been contact between the clubs, so that’s classed as speculation,” Hughton said.“As we get to January the names are going to be thick and fast, but at the moment they are all speculation.”Hughton’s team defended resolutely at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea broke the deadlock courtesy of Alvaro Morata’s header 52 seconds into the second half.Marcos Alonso’s goal on the hour mark sealed a deserved win for the Blues.“The game went as we would have expected, with them having a lot of possession,” Hughton said.“What disappointed me most was the timing of the first goal and the fact that the second was from a set piece.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Delancy challenged on leadership style, calls Floyd Hall, ‘man of integrity’ Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 17 Dec 2015 – The Special Investigation and Prosecution Team trials will start on January 18th, 2016 as scheduled. Every motion put to Justice Paul Harrison was denied and dismissed earlier today as the controversial cases, which are three years behind a scheduled start seem to be poised to gain momentum once we are past the holidays. For some of the defendants this is good news as they are ready to see the trial begin, for others including Michael Misick and Floyd Hall, there is disappointment. Misick tried to stay the trial claiming it was unconstitutional, that it was an abusive process victimizing him for political reasons and that it rivaled the specialty rule of the treaty which supports that charges cannot be increased. Still, Justice Harrison concluded that the treaty is irrelevant as it is not adopted by TCI law, that the constitutional infraction is also irrelevant and if Michael Misick deems it necessary he can appeal any verdict and that ‘there was no abuse of process’. The Justice said the offenses linked to alleged bribery and conspiracy are properly laid.’ In the case of ex Deputy Premier, Floyd Hall the Justice ruled that the six month time frame for the trial start to be delayed is excessive. While he empathized with the new attorney for Hall that the evidence and information for the trial is both complex and plentiful, the Justice said the attorney which Floyd Hall had from the start should be able to appraise the new team on the case. Harrison today told Earl Whitter, ‘council will have to make some effort to adjust’ as the trial will start in January on the date already proposed. It was moved also today, that Michael Misick would see his curfew relaxed for the holidays, this came from Andrew Mitchell, lawyer for the SIPT. The proceedings are now adjourned until January.

Narender Nath Dhar.The performances by Padma Vibhushan Pt Jasraj, and by Pt. Narender Nath Dhar of the Etawah Gharana brought down curtains over the event after five mesmerizing days of classical music display.Showcasing the best of India’s music traditions, the five-day festival of classical music saw several leading names in the field come together with some promising young exponent of classical music.

Kolkata: In a collective bid to achieve 100 percent conviction rate in cases of sexual violence, Dignity March, a platform for the survivors of rape and sexual violence, conducted a campaign in Kolkata on Friday.Around thousands take part in this journey — aiming to cover 10,000 km across the country — with the aim to put an end to the culture of shame and fear among victims and instill the fear of conviction in culprits. “We need to support the victims of sexual crimes, especially in cases of commercial sexual exploitation of children, as minors are vulnerable and need constant support from their families and society. In the past, our governments and laws have taken a reactive approach towards this issue but it is high time to take a robust proactive measure to create deterrence among “customers” who buy sex involving children.

The statistics of National Crime Record Bureau 2016 states that out of 15,379 victims trafficked in India, around 58.7 percent is children. Most of these children are trafficked for sex-work (or Commercial Sexual Exploitation). Dignity March is rooted in a national online survey conducted by Rashtriya Garima Abhiyan. The survey ‘Speak Out!’ was conducted to determine the intensity of sexual violence against women and children and gave the survivors an opportunity to raise their voice against such atrocities. The survey revealed that an alarming number of people have faced sexual violence but about 95 percent of such cases remain unreported. Especially, in case of children, most crimes go unnoticed and there is negligible conviction which leads to impunity among culprits. Dignity March has already covered Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha.
