HYDERABAD: While extending the earlier interim orders till October 15, a division bench of Hyderabad High Court on Friday said that it will consider the petitions of the women who have approached the court urging it to hear them with regard to cases against ‘Online Rummy’.
The bench of Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice J Uma Devi was dealing with batch petitions filed by Junglee Games India Pvt Ltd, Play Games 24x7 Pvt Ltd and Head Infotech (India) Pvt Ltd from Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad challenging an Ordinance issued by Telangana government bringing ‘Online Rummy’ under the Gaming Act by amending the provisions of Telangana Gaming Act, 1974.
Earlier, the bench passed interim orders directing the Telangana government to allow the petitioner companies to carry on their business outside Telangana until further orders.
On Friday, the counsels appearing for various woman organisations brought to the notice of the bench that they have filed applications before the court seeking to implead them as parties to the present case. In fact, most of the women have been suffering as their husbands were spending their earnings on the game.
Taking their submissions into consideration, the bench said that it will hear their arguments before adjudicating the matter, and adjourned the case hearing.
