Important matters heard in the Supreme Court on Monday, February 19:

* Observing that “horse-trading is taking place”, the SC said it would peruse on Tuesday the ballot papers of the Chandigarh mayoral polls and the entire video-recording of the counting day, and directed the registrar general of the Punjab and Haryana High Court to depute a judicial officer to bring the records safely to Delhi.
