SC: Liquor sales ban covers hotels too
The Supreme Court clarified there will be no liquor sale in hotels and restaurants, or liquor outlets, within 500 meters of state and national highways.
Can’t ban MPs from other professions: SC
Responding a petition, filed in the Supreme Court seeking to ban legislators from practising other professions, including as advocates, the Supreme Court says conflict of interest argument makes sense but court cannot frame policy.
Notify HIV-hit children as disadvantaged group: SC
The Supreme Court ordered State governments to consider issuing a notification under the Right to Education law, declaring children living with/affected by HIV as a ‘disadvantaged group’ deserving additional rights to help them gain free and compulsory education, a fundamental right under the Constitution.

According to a year-long survey by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), nearly 30% of the so-called Grossly Polluting Industries (GPI), along the Ganga, were not complying with norms.
New way to fight drug resistant superbugs
Scientists have found that an unusual approach of removing antibodies from the blood stream could reduce chronic infections, an advance that may help humans in the fight against drug resistant superbugs.
