Request for security to theatres in Gujarat screening Fanaa declined
The Supreme Court on Monday declined to grant film director Mahesh Bhatt's request for a direction to Gujarat DGP to provide security for cinema halls in the state which wanted to screen Aamir Khan starrer Fanaa.
''You may have a right to see a film, but we cannot compel anyone to exhibit the film,'' a bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice C K Thakker observed while dismissing the petition.
The court said by allowing Bhatt's request, it did not want to ''open the floodgates'' for similar petitions. However, it added, ''if any producer wants to screen the film and seeks police protection, the same goes without saying that it shall be provided''.
Blue Lady: SC accepts panel report
NEW DELHI: SS Norway aka Blue Lady, the Norwegian ship whose movement along Indian territorial waters had created a furor with environmental activists upping the ante over its toxic load, will now be able to anchor off the Gujarat coast.
This follows the Supreme Court on Monday accepting the recommendations of a high-level committee appointed by it to go into the issue. ''We appointed a committee to look into the matter. The committee has given its recommendations in respect of anchorage, beaching and dismantling. Conditions given by the committee appear to be prima facie reasonable,'' a bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice C K Thakker said.
