PIL Against US 64 Dismissed as Withdrawn

A Public Interest Petition filed by Mr. Pradeep Bhavani, President of National Association of Small Investors, Mumbai, in the Bombay High Court was withdrawn by the Petitioner as the Petitioner could not establish before the Hon’ble High Court, the locus standi and the purpose for which the petition was filed. The Petition which sought to challenge the order of suspension of repurchase and also made allegations against various persons, was dismissed as withdrawn.

It was submitted by the Solicitor General of India, Shri Harish Salve on behalf of UTI that the Petitioner has made certain allegations against the Parliament and the Joint Parliamentary Committee constituted by the Parliament which were not only in bad taste but were highly objectionable and should be, therefore, expunged from the Rejoinder filed by the Petitioner.
