This means that the court which had been handling the case right from the beginning will continue with the matter.On October 13, the ACMM Vishal Pahuja had deferred the final hearing in the matter after stating that as per the orders of the Supreme Court, the ACMM’s court was designated as Special Court for trying cases against MPs/MLAs. Therefore, it cannot hear a case filed by a MP, and can only hear cases against MPs, observed the court. Stating this, the ACMM had referred the matter to the Sessions Court for orders on transfer.This development took place when the case was at the stage of the final hearing. The ACMM had by then completed the examination of witnessed produced by the complainant and the accused. The ACMM’s order to defer the hearing had caused confusion as to whether the trial proceedings will have to re-start afresh if the matter was assigned to some other court.Settling such doubts, the District and Sessions Judge ordered on Thursday that the matter will continue before the same court.The ACMM will take up the case on November 2.The criminal defamation case was filed by Akbar in October 2018 after Priya Ramani revealed on social media that she had to face sexual harassment from him while she was working under him.Akbar had to resign as the Union Minister following the controversy created by Ramani’s revelations amid the ‘#MeToo’ movement.Next Storylast_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Queiroz’s side came close to a famous 0-0 draw with Argentina at the last World Cup in Brazil, only for Messi to score an injury-time winner in Belo Horizonte.The 64-year-old believes that moment underlined the genius of the diminutive forward.”I’ve always said that Messi is an extraordinary player,” he told FIFA.com. “He’s out of this world. If he were human, he wouldn’t have had that magical moment in that match.”I don’t usually like losing, but I didn’t come away from that defeat with a negative feeling. It’s when something magical like that happens that you know that football is alive and kicking, and that’s why it’s one of the best sports in the world to watch.”And it’s even more of a special moment when it comes from a player who shouldn’t be allowed to play by FIFA until it’s proven that he’s actually human!”36 – Lionel Messi has now scored against more different teams than any other player in La Liga history, surpassing Raul Gonzalez and Aritz Aduriz (35).

In this case, it’s the best player in the world,” he said. “But when the match starts there are just two teams who are trying to win. Football will decide who wins the day and who was better on the field of play.”The memories stay with you, of course they do, especially in shared projects, like we had at Manchester and the Portuguese national team. That was a long time ago, though.”Times have changed and now I’ve got other Ronaldos with me. They’re important players… the likes of [Alireza] Jahanbakhsh, [Reza] Ghoochannejad, [Ali] Karimi. These are the Ronaldos I’ve got to look after now and who I’ve got to pay attention to achieve the success we all want.”last_img read more
