NEW DELHI: The Delhi HC has refused to stay two notifications of the Centre which had taken away the power of the city government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) to prosecute officials of Union government, saying a vacation court cannot grant the relief sought by a fresh PIL.

A Bench of Justice S Muralidhar and Justice I S Mehta said as the issue was already before a regular Bench, it being a vacation court won’t pass any orders at this stage and tagged the PIL with another plea filed by a law student, who also challenged the notifications.
