Court closes ragging case after compromise

Legal Correspondent

Judge quashes case after accused tender apology to the complainant

HYDERABAD: Justice T. Gopalakrishna of the High Court on Thursday recorded the compromise in a case pertaining to ragging and quashed the case.

N. Triveni of Srikakulam was studying B.Tech (Agriculture) in the Agriculture College at Bapatla in Guntur district. After she was harassed and ragged by her seniors, she tried to end her life. A case was registered against the senior students.

Triveni filed a petition in the High Court seeking transfer of this criminal case to Srikakulam, East Godavari or Visakhapatnam district. The court issued notices to the senior students who are accused in the case. Justice Gopalakrishna reminded them that their future was at stake and advised them not to violate the law. The seniors apologised and regretted the incidents and offered to pay Rs 1.5 lakh to Triveni. Recording the compromise, the judge closed the case.

Election petition closed

The election petition filed against Channameneni Ramesh challenging his election to the Assembly in 2009 was declared closed by Justice Bhavani Prasad on Thursday.

Srinivas filed the election petition contending that the victory of Mr. Ramesh from Vemulawada constituency in 2009 was not valid. The former TDP MLA, who is now contesting on the TRS ticket from Vemulawada, filed a petition last week bringing to the notice of the court the fact that he had resigned from the Assembly and that a fresh election was being held. He pleaded with the court to declare the election petition as closed. The judge took on record the facts and declared the petition closed.
