SR Krishna Murthy, who claims to be a Life-Fellow of the Insurance Institute of India, had approached the High Court contending that in Indian conditions, use of a mask is most unscientific, and making it compulsory is violative of Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The bench comprising of the Chief Justice Abhay S. Oka and Justice Nataraj Rangaswamy observed that whether the action of the authorities of making the use of masks mandatory is right or wrong is not an issue which can be decided by a writ Court. “It is for the experts to decide whether the use of masks should be made mandatory and what category and what type of masks should be used by members of the public. The same is the case with the use of PPE kits.”, the bench said. The bench also refused to accept his plea to not restrict the timings for movement of people at all. His third prayer was quite interesting which reads: Direct Union of India and State of Karnataka to nominate their representative who should be easily available all the time to any Constituent who needs to communicate with the Constituted urgently on any issue that he considers important, as a true feature of a Republic; as India was, in pre-Independence days (when many a king would provide a bell in front of his Court for anybody to ring to claim justice!), which Republican feature is totally missing today; so as to avert a national tragedy like the one that hit the country on 30th October 1984.Elaborating this plea, the petitioner submitted before the bench that Indira Gandhi in a public speech expressed an apprehension that there is a threat to her life, no one cared and that is how the tragedy happened on 30th October 1984. Therefore, according to him, the Central Government and the State Government must nominate their representatives who should be easily available all the time to anyone who needs to communicate with the Constituent urgently. The bench, with regard to this plea, said: “The illustration given by the petitioner of the tragedy of 30th October 1984 has no application to the present situation. The State Government has created helplines and there are official email IDs of various departments of the State Government as well as the Central Government. Sending e-mail is a very convenient mode available to the petitioner for seeking redressal of his grievances.” Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Story

Noting that if the marriage is dissolved, the children would suffer a great loss, the Bench of Justice Pushpa V. Ganediwala and Justice A. S. Chandurkar ruled that no case is made out by the appellant/husband to disturb the well-reasoned findings of the trial Court. The facts in brief One Shankar (appellant/husband) preferred an appeal against the judgment and decree dated 21st January 2015 passed by the Family Court, Nagpur, whereby the petition of the husband, for a decree of divorce on the ground of cruelty under Section 13(1)(i-a) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, was dismissed. The marriage between the appellant/husband and the respondent/wife was solemnized on 15th June 2003 at Nagpur and the couple has one son and one daughter. Among other things, it was stated that she was addicted to chewing tobacco and therefore she had developed a cyst in her stomach and the appellant-husband had to incur huge medical expenses for her treatment. Lastly, it was stated that on 17th January 2012, she left the company of the appellant/husband, as she was not interested to cohabit with him. On the other hand, the respondent/wife, in her written-statement denied all the adverse allegations of cruelty pleaded by the appellant/husband and pleaded about some instances of mental and physical harassment meted out to her at the hands of the appellant/husband and her mother-in-law. He also stated that there was a demand of two-wheeler from her parents by the appellant/husband, and on that count, he gave beating to her. The respondent/wife further alleged that in the year 2008, even though the appellant/husband was suffering from the disease H.I.V., she did not leave his company, however, as she was receiving continuous ill-treatment at the hands of her in-laws, she was constrained to leave the company of the appellant/husband. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court observed, “A careful perusal of the pleadings and the evidence in support as adduced by the appellant/husband, would at once reveal that the allegations with regard to cruelty as set out by the appellant/husband, are nothing but the normal wear and tear in married life.” The Court also remarked, “The allegations that she was not doing household work, quarreling with his family members without any reason, visiting her parental home without his permission, not preparing his tiffin etc., in the considered view of this Court, are not sufficient to form any opinion that the appellant/husband is undergoing acute mental pain, agony, suffering, disappointment and frustration and therefore it is not possible for him to live in the company of the respondent/wife.” The Court also noted that when the appellant/husband was detected with HIV positive, the respondent/wife stayed with the appellant/husband till 2010. Regarding Husband’s claim that cost was incurred on the medical treatment of his wife (on account of her tobacco habit), the Bench noted, “The trial Court has rightly observed that he failed to bring on record the medical papers and bills in support of this pleading.” Lastly, the Court said, “Apart from this, it is rightly held by the learned trial Court that the pleadings of the appellant/husband are not so grave and weighty so as to dissolve the marriage.” In the given facts, the Court was of the opinion that no case was made out by the appellant/husband to disturb the “well-reasoned findings” of the trial Court. The appeal, thus, being devoid of merits was dismissed. Case title – Shankar v.

The biggest threat will be damaging winds, hail and a few tornadoes. The tornado threat will be slightly higher on Tuesday.Populated areas, including Omaha and parts of Kansas City, will be impacted.An even stronger storm system will ride the jet stream from the west into the Plains on Wednesday, bringing an even higher threat for tornadoes, damaging winds and hail to populated areas, such as Abilene, Texas; Oklahoma City; Wichita, Kansas; Kansas City, Missouri; and as far north as Des Moines, Iowa.Ahead of the severe weather it will suddenly feel like summer for the Midwest and Northeast.Temperatures on Monday will be up to 20 degrees above normal for the Upper Midwest and Plains with temperatures near 80 degrees possible in Minneapolis.

sshepard/iStockBy STEPHANIE EBBS, ABC News(ATLANTA) — The Centers for Disease Control is advising Americans not to travel for Thanksgiving next week, saying Thursday that the extraordinary spike of a million new cases over the last week raises new concern that family gatherings could spread the virus among families and communities.“Travel may increase your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others this year,” the new guidelines state.Erin Sauber-Schatz, the head of CDC’s community intervention and critical population task force, said the agency is asking people to consider whether their holiday plans could bring them in contact with someone at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.“We are really asking people to be flexible in their plans for Thanksgiving. In the last week we’ve seen over a million new cases Thanksgiving is a week away. And so if you are showing any signs and symptoms of COVID-19, we are strongly recommending that you do not travel, be flexible and make those decisions, moving forward in the next week,” she said.The number of Americans diagnosed with and hospitalized for COVID-19 have skyrocketed in almost every state in recent weeks. The country reported more than 165,000 new cases on Wednesday, according to CDC, and 20 states were at the highest numbers of people hospitalized for COVID-19 than any other point in the pandemic earlier this week, according to the COVID Tracking Project.And given increases in case numbers after previous holidays like Labor Day and Memorial Day experts are concerned traveling and gathering for Thanksgiving could increase the risk of exposure for vulnerable populations.“We’re seeing exponential growth in cases,” CDC COVID-19 incident manager Dr. Henry Walke said. “The opportunity to translocate disease or infection from one part of the country to another leads to our recommendation to avoid travel at this time.”CDC officials said they concerned not just about people spending time on planes, buses, trains, or in cars but also about transportation hubs like airports where it could be difficult to maintain distance from others.CDC’s COVID-19 incident manager Henry Walke said they know canceling Thanksgiving plans is a difficult decision, saying he plans to stay home for the holiday despite not seeing his parents since January.“With Thanksgiving approaching our hearts and minds turned to seeing families and friends as part of one of our nation’s great traditions. And we all need to consider the safest way to celebrate this holiday. Amidst this critical phase of the COVID-19 pandemic CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period,” Walke said.“These times are tough. It’s been a long. It’s been a long outbreak, almost 11 months now and people are tired. And we understand that and people want to see their, their relatives and their friends. And the way they’ve always done it. But this year, particularly we’re asking people to be as safe as possible, and limit their travel,” he added.Sauber-Schatz said CDC’s new guidance also clarifies the definition of “household,” saying that just because someone is a family member, they aren’t considered part of your household unless they’ve been living with you for 14 days – including college students.“The safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is at home with the people in your household, if people have not been actively living with you for the 14 days before you’re celebrating. They are not considered a member of your household, and therefore you need to take those extra precautions, even wearing masks within your own home.”If family members are visiting or, like college students, traveling home for an extended period of time the guidance includes recommendations for “overnight guests,” including providing a separate bathroom and wearing masks inside the home.CDC recommends that if you are hosting a Thanksgiving gathering to have the meal outdoors if possible or open windows to increase circulation, limit the number of guests, be clear with guests about expectations for keeping distance and wearing masks.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
