New Delhi: The Delhi government on Friday told a court here that the police filed the charge sheet in the 2016 JNU sedition case in a “hasty” and “secretive manner” and that it will take over a month to decide whether to grant sanction to prosecute former JNU student’s union president Kanhaiya Kumar in the case. The AAP government made the submission to Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat It accused the police of filing the charge sheet secretly and in a hasty manner without obtaining the required sanction from the competent authority. The court had earlier directed the state government to file a “proper reply”, citing a definite time-frame. DCP of Special Cell of Delhi Police, Pramod Kushwaha, had told the court that the agency has already sent a request to the Delhi government seeking sanction and added sanction was an administrative action and the charge sheet can be filed without that.
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday adjourned hearing on a plea seeking prompt redressal of consumer complaints in the wake of the ongoing Jet Airways crisis. The court said that it will hear the plea on May 1. The application was filed by consumer rights activist Bejon K. Misra, whose earlier plea seeking capping of airfares charged by various airlines in the country, is still pending before the court. In Monday’s interim application, the petitioner claimed that passengers had been severely affected owing to the sudden suspension of Jet Airways services and sought directions to the government to allow them a full refund on their tickets with a reasonable compensation, or to arrange for alternative travel for them to reach their destinations.

The need to seek alternative modes of travel, or seats, on other airlines urgently was resulting in chaos as other airlines were profiteering out of the crisis, he said. “It is common knowledge that all the competitor airlines have exorbitantly increased their fares and the vulnerable consumers are constrained to suffer not only in terms of money but also in terms of mental harassment of an unprecedented scale,” read the application. Misra has earlier told the court that the authorities were behaving like “silent spectators” to the “arbitrary” air fares. He said that in the absence of any effective aviation sector regulator, there is a looming crisis in the country.

UPDATE: TV Guide Slashes Jobs Following Merger ApprovalGemstar-TV Guide announced today that its stockholders have approved the company’s proposed merger with Macrovision Corporation, the Santa Clara, California-based digital software solutions firm that agreed last December to acquire Gemstar for $2.8 billion in cash and stock. The merger is expected to take effect May 2. The transaction had been pending shareholder approval since December when Gemstar’s board unanimously approved the transaction and Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., which owns 41 percent of Gemstar, also agreed to the deal.In January, there was serious speculation that some stockholders would vote against the deal. On Monday, shares of Gemstar-TV Guide hit a 13-month-low of $4.04 per share.What’s Next?For Macrovision, the question now becomes what to do with TV Guide’s publishing business, including its 3.2 million circulation flagship magazine. During a conference call the morning of the sale announcement, Macrovision CEO Fred Amoroso said he would need time to study that part of the company before disclosing his plans for the magazine. “I don’t have a deep background in that area,” Amoroso said.The indication now is that Macrovision intends to find a buyer for the publishing business, including TV Guide, and its cable assets. It’s unclear, however, whether TV Guide’s online arm, including TVGuide.com and jumptheshark.com, would be included in any deal.
