No shifting of circus animals to zoo

By Our Legal Correspondent

HYDERABAD, APRIL 11. Mr. Justice B. Sudershan Reddy of the A.P. High Court on Wednesday recorded the undertaking by three Government pleaders that the orders of the District Collector Ranga Reddy directing the shifting of the animals from Great Rayman Circus to the Nehru Zoological Park will not be implemented till Thursday and posted the matter to Thursday for further hearing.

The writ petition filed by the management of the circus had come up for hearing in the afternoon. The petitioner contended that the Collector had no jurisdiction to pass such ex parte order merely on a complaint by some enthusiasts. The petitioner said that the order was passed without giving any opportunity to be heard. When counsel for the petitioner insisted on interim stay orders, the judge felt that there should be full-fledged hearing in the matter and indicated that no coercive steps be taken till Thursday. The Government pleaders said that no coercive steps will be taken till the matter was heard on Thursday.
