New Delhi: In a relief to a 16-year-old who claims to be “best boxer” in his weight category of 80 kg plus and sought direction to include him in the Indian squad for the Junior World Boxing Championships to be held in Russia September 2-13, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked sports authorities to review his selection.

Justice V.P. Vaish said the sports bodies should ensure that the “best talent” is selected for participating in world events and directed the authorities and the International Boxing Association to conduct a meeting urgently within three days to review the selection and participation of Harshpreet Sehrawat. Sehrawat’s plea claimed that he was a national champion and has fought against older boxers in his weight category. The court said: “It is made clear that the result of the meeting will be communicated to the boy’s guardians or his counsel as soon as the same is declared. Sports Authority of India (SAI) is directed to make necessary arrangements for the boy in advance, so that there are no delays or (glitches) experienced on account of all the necessary arrangements for participation of the minor in the international tournament, if he succeeds.

“The adhoc committee of the AIBA should pass a detailed reasoned order specifying the reasons for such selection or rejection of the minor and not pass the order in mechanical manner, the court further said. Advocate D.R. Nigam, appearing for Sehrawat, said that despite his credentials, Sehrawat had been overlooked by the selection committee for the tournament to be held in St Petersburg. He also alleged that both the SAI and the sports ministry are keeping quiet despite being aware of the facts.

As a mark of respect to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth Anniversary, the Full Court of Rajasthan High Court has unanimously resolved to ban single-use plastic and thermocol products in the court’s premises.

In a circular, the Rajasthan High Court said the state government had imposed a ban on the use of plastic carry bags across the State in 2010 but this has not sufficiently worked on the ground.

The Central Government has recently declared to ban the single-use plastic across the nation from October 2, but without public awareness and commitment, this step may also result in futility, the circular stated.

“As a mark of respect to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth anniversary and in the interest of the institution and public at large, the Full Court has unanimously resolved not to use the banned single-use plastic/thermocol in any manner in the premises of the Rajasthan High Court and High Court guest house both at Jodhpur and Jaipur, as also in the premises of all the subordinate courts, canteens/restaurants in the premises of all the Courts of the State and also during official functions, conferences and any other occasions,” said the Rajasthan High Court in a notification.

This means that the ban will extend to all courts in the state, High Court Guest House at Jaipur and Jodhpur, canteens and restaurants operating inside the premises of Courts as well as official functions, conferences and any other occasion.
