Delhi High Court Round-Up for Wednesday

Important cases heard in the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, October 18:

* The Bar Council of India (BCI) approached the HC against a direction to process the enrolment of a South Korean national as an advocate.

* The HC has taken a “grim view” of the obstacles being faced by prospective adoptive parents in securing no-objection certificates from the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) for inter-country adoption, saying the process should not be made onerous.

* The HC has summoned trial court record in the abetment to suicide case of deceased air hostess Geetika Sharma’s mother, who died six months after her daughter, on a plea by the State challenging setting aside of the summons to former Haryana Minister Gopal Kanda.

* The HC has said the exclusion of “infertile couples” from the benefit of surrogacy prima facie violates their basic right to parenthood as it denies them access to legally and medically regulated procedures and services.

* The HC has restrained the unauthorised streaming of the reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ and said the mushrooming of websites illegally broadcasting its content would boost piracy.

* The bar and the bench are the two wheels of the administration of justice and have always worked together to secure liberty, equality and justice for the people of this country, Justice Siddharth Mridul of the Delhi HC said.
