Nepal Plane Crash: ‘We Have Not Rescued Anyone Alive’ Says The Nepal Army

The unfortunate Nepal plane crash incident that took place on Sunday has zero survivors, as informed by the Nepal Army spokesperson Krishna Prasad Bharti. On Monday, the Nepal Army said that they have not rescued anyone alive from the Nepal plane crash site in the central resort city of Pokhara. A Yeti Airlines passenger plane crashed into a river gorge during its landing at the newly-opened airport located in Nepal’s Pokhara. The Nepal plane was carrying 72 passengers, including 5 Indians, all feared to be dead. The twin-engine turboprop ATR 72 plane flew from Kathmandu to Pokhara. After the Nepal plane crash incident, Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal called for an emergency meeting of the council of ministers. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also expressed grief over the incident and tweeted: “Pained by the tragic air crash in Nepal in which precious lives have been lost, including Indian nationals. In this hour of grief, my thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families,” The Nepalese authorities have constituted a special commission to investigate the causes of the crash. A report from the commission is expected to arrive in 45 days. 

Supreme Court: Default Bail Can Be Cancelled Only If Charges From a Strong Case

On Monday, the Supreme Court held that a default bail granted to the accused can be cancelled only if the charges form a strong and special case after a chargesheet has been filed. The order was given by a bench of Justices M R Shah and C T Ravikumar, who said that the mere filing of a chargesheet would not guarantee the cancellation unless the court is satisfied that a strong case is made out against the accused. “The bail granted to an accused can be cancelled on merits if a special and strong ground is made out on filing of a charge sheet and the courts are not precluded from considering a plea for cancellation of bail,” said the Supreme Court. The observation was made while directing the Telangana High Court to consider the CBI’s plea for bail cancellation to Erra Gangi Reddy, who was arrested in connection with the murder of former Andhra Pradesh Minister Y K Vivekananda Reddy, uncle of incumbent CM Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy. 

Delhi High Court Dismisses Plea Questioning The Appointment of CJI D Y Chandrachud

The Delhi High Court today dismissed a review plea filed against the appointment of the Chief Justice of India, D Y Chandrachud. The review plea was dismissed by the division bench of Justices Sanjeev Sachdeva and Vikas Mahajan. While rejecting the plea, the court said that since the petitioner failed to show any error apparent on the face of the record, the petition was accordingly dismissed. Earlier also, the Delhi High Court had termed the Public Interest Litigation as publicity interest litigation and imposed a cost of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner Sanjeev Kumar Tiwari. “Present petition has only been filed only to gain publicity without there being any material,” the bench had said. The petitioner is said to be the President of Gram Uday Foundation, who had argued that the appointment of CJI D Y Chandrachud was made in violation of the constitutional provisions, thereby praying for an immediate stay on the appointment. In fact, he had also asked security agencies to ascertain the fact that the new CJI doesn’t have any relations with Naxalite Christian terrorists and anti-nationals. D Y Chandrachud was sworn in as the 50th Chief Justice of India on November 9, 2022. His father, Justice YV Chandrachud, served as the 16th CJI from February 2, 1978, to July 11, 1985.
