The suit was filed for recovery of possession and mesne profits with respect to a property under co-ownership, which was under the occupation of a tenant. One of the co-owners instituted the suit.

The Bench comprising Justice S.P. Garg and Justice C. Hari Shankar observed, “Ecclesiastically as well as temporally, child rape is inexcusable. No leniency, or mercy, can be shown to the violator of the body of a child of tender years, who is yet to savour the first fragrance of adolescence. It is for this reason that the statute, too, treated such an offence as one of its.ind, and carved out a separate substantive provision to deal therewith, in clause (f) of Section 376 (2) of the IPC [as it stood prior to its amendment with effect from 3rd February 2013 vide Section 9 of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013].

The Division Bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Chander Shekhar of Delhi High Court today concluded arguments and reserved its judgment in the petitions challenging the disqualification of 20 MLAs of Delhi assembly by the President, Ram Nath Kovind, on the Election Commission’s recommendation that they held offices of profit, by virtue of their appointment as Parliamentary Secretaries. As the counsel for the Election Commission, Amit Sharma, and the senior counsel for the MLAs, K.V.Vishwanathan summed up their arguments, it became increasingly clear that the grounds for striking down their disqualification are fairly strong. Although Sharma kept saying that the E.C.’s recommendation is non-existent once President Kovind took a decision on it, he addressed the bench on why the MLAs’ plea that they were not given an opportunity of oral hearing by the E.C. was not tenable.
