The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned its hearing of the appeal of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia, to April 21, 2022. Majithia is accused under the provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
In the petition, Sanjay Singh had pleaded to quash the defamation case filed by Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikramjit Singh Majithia. Along with this, demand for exemption from personal appearance was also rejected by the High Court.
Even as President Ram Nath Kovind gave his approval to the three contentious farm bills on Sunday, the protests by opposition and farmer groups continued and Congress MP TN Prathapan from Kerala has made preparations to approach the Supreme Court today to file a petition against the bills.
