SC frees Manali taxis from NGT order on emissions
An apex court vacation bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit asked the tourist taxi operators to go to the National Green Tribunal (NGT) for the modification of its other May 5 directions
 
The Supreme Court on Tuesday freed the Manali-Rohtang tourist taxi operators from complying with Bharat Stage IV emission standards as it suspended the National Green Tribunal's order in this respect.
 
An apex court vacation bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit asked the tourist taxi operators to go to the National Green Tribunal (NGT) for the modification of its other May 5 directions.
 
The court gave petitioner Him Aanchal Tourist Taxi Operators Union a week's time to approach the NGT which in turn would hold an early hearing.
 
While permitting the tourist taxi operators to approach the NGT, the court declined to disturb any of the other directions involving levying of environmental compensation charge, and cap on 1,000 cars going to Rohtang from Manali.

JD-U leader's bodyguard killed in parcel bomb blast
The bodyguard of a Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader was killed on Tuesday in Bihar's Gaya district when a bomb - wrapped in a parcel - exploded at the politician's house, police said.
 
"A parcel bomb has exploded at the house of JD-U's Gaya district (rural) president Abhay Kushwaha. His body guard was killed and his relative was seriously injured," said Gaya Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj.
 
Kushwaha's brother-in-law, who was seriously injured, has been admitted to a hospital in Gaya, about 100 km from here.
 
Maharaj said police have begun investigation into who sent the parcel and are probing the courier company that delivered it.
 
"It is a matter of investigation," he said.
 
Additional Director General of Police Sunil Kumar told media here that preliminary investigations have ruled out Maoists' hand in it.
 
"So far, it appears that Maoists were not involved in it," he said.
