At the outset, the senior counsel appearing for SAES wanted the matter to be postponed to next Monday. He didn’t succeed as the young lady lawyer, Kanika Agnihotri, appearing for the parents protested and the judge agreed with her.
Judge heard the lady lawyer for about an hour. Asked questions. Got answers. Appreciated the case laws cited. Issued notice to SAES & others seeking their reply before 12th August. The senior counsel appearing for SAES, wanting more time for the reply, commented that the petition was long & unnecessary. He was promptly rebutted by the lady lawyer.
On 12th August, the lady lawyer will complete her submissions and the Judge will consider the issue of interim relief.
