NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Friday sought the response of the 16 policemen acquitted  in the 1987 Hashimpura massacre case.

A Bench of Justice G S Sistani and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal issued notice to the 16 former policemen on the UP government’s plea against the trial court verdict and sought their replies by July 21.

The UP government had approached the High Court last week against the order in which the policemen were held not guilty of the charges of murder, attempt to murder, tampering with evidence and conspiracy in the massacre case in which 42 people were killed in Meerut city.


The Supreme Court on Friday sought the response of the Centre and various states on a plea seeking extended counselling for the vacant seats in All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination.

A Vacation Bench comprising Justice A K Sikri and Justice U U Lalit issued notices to the Centre, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Medical Council of India and 20 states, arrayed as respondents, on a plea filed by 26 doctors.

The Bench, after issuing the notices, posted the matter for further hearing on Wednesday.

 The CBI on Friday informed the Supreme Court that it had no objection to taking over the investigation into the alleged rape of an MBA student of a private university in Haryana.

A Vacation Bench took on record the submission made by the CBI through Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand and asked the three accused to respond to the notice issued on the plea.
