The Single Bench of Justice Nirmaljit Kaur said that no coercive action shall be taken against the Petitioner- Sher Partap Singh, in pursuance of the summons issued by the lower Court, until January 31, 2020. “No coercive steps shall be taken in pursuance to the order dated 20.6.2020 till 31.1.2021 with the hope that the international flights shall commence by then. However, in case the international flights between India and Australia commences before that, the respondents will be at liberty to move an application requiring the petitioner to join the investigation in India,” the Bench observed. It further added, “However, meanwhile, the petitioner may also join the investigation on Video Conferencing with the police in India for which he shall supply his mobile phone number on which the same can take place.” The Court was hearing a criminal miscellaneous petition seeking quashing of an FIR registered against him by his wife, under Sections 420 (Cheating), 498-A (Cruelty) and 406 (Criminal breach of trust) of IPC, in the NRI wing of Mohali Police. During the course of hearing however, the Petitioner withdrew the plea for quashing of the FIR and restricted his relief to quashing of the summoning order. He had contended that summons under Section 105B CrPC can be invoked only in case of “very serious crimes” applicable only to the offences which have “international ramifications”. He had also undertaken to join the investigation as soon as the international flights between India and Australia commenced. The matter is now listed for hearing in February, 2021.

Saint Mary’s changes options for on-campus living

first_imgWhen campus opens for the fall semester, Saint Mary’s will welcome back returning students, members of the Class of 2016 and possibly some four-legged guests. Next year, Regina South will be open exclusively to seniors and, if approved, their pets as well. The newest senior housing option, announced by the Department of Residence Life and Community Standards last month, is an example of how the College is working to retain students on campus for all four years. Janielle Tchakerian, assistant vice president for Student Affairs and director of Residence Life and Community Standards, said 72 percent of the graduating senior class signed housing agreements to live on campus next year. “For some students it is cheaper to live on campus than off because of financial aid reasons,” she said. “Others choose to live on campus because of the conveniences and the new senior living option in Regina South.” Tchakerian said in addition to the growing list of senior-only living options, the College is also retaining so many seniors due to changes in the housing selection process. “[Some students chose to live on campus] because we had senior room selection in February which allowed [the seniors] to know sooner if they got into a particular hall, floor, etc. instead of waiting until April,” she said. In addition to private access to kitchens, a new visitation policy, upgraded computer labs and flexibility when selecting a meal plan, Tchakerian said Regina South residents have the opportunity to bring a small pet to join them in the room, which has drawn a positive response. “I do not know any exact number [of how many pets will live in Regina South],” Tchakerian said. “However, there are 21 students who have indicated a strong interest and want the pet registration information,” Tchakerian said she is excited for the opportunity to collaborate with students to further improve the senior housing options. “I am looking forward to working with a group of women to help further enhance the senior living experience,” she said. “We have the framework in place but are allowing the students to help further define their experience.” Regina South is not the only exclusive housing option available to seniors next year. Annunciata Hall and Opus Hall are also living accommodations designated for seniors. Annunciata, located on the top floor of Holy Cross Hall, features a private kitchen and common room for residents. Junior Alyssa Baz said she is thrilled she secured a room in Annunciata for her final year of college. “My stepmom was one of the founding residents of Annunciata when she was a senior, so I knew that I wanted to live there to keep the tradition alive,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to live in any other building during my last year at Saint Mary’s.” Opus is filled to capacity for the 2012-2013 academic year. Each apartment features a furnished living room, a full kitchen and private bedrooms. Junior Hilary Whitsett will live in an Opus quad next year. She said she has been hoping to spend her final year in Opus since she was a freshman. “The apartments are really nice and it will be great to have my own room,” she said. “I am looking forward to moving out of the dorms and having a real type of apartment and not living in one big room with a bunch of people. It will feel like a real living space.”last_img read more
