bursts tear gas shells
7 (PTI) A security guard at Surat Municipal
Corporation (SMC) fired two rounds in the air and the
police burst tear gas shells at separate places in the
city to disperse stone-throwing mob of weavers during the
Surat bandh today to protest against the power hike by
the Gujarat Electricity Board. Three civic employees,
attached to Udhna zone office of Surat Municipal
Corporation (SMC), were injured when the weavers threw
stones at the zone officer.
Order set aside
7 (UNI) The Kerala High Court today set aside the
state government order sanctioning 360 plus two schools
during the year 2000-2001. A Division Bench comprising
Chief Justice A.V. Savant and Mr Justice K.S.
Radhakrishnan directed the state government to reconsider
the 1429 applications for starting the course and publish
a fresh list by July 26 so that the courses could be
started in the selected schools by August 1. The court
said the government had acted in an arbitrary manner in
selecting the 360 institutions.
