A woman undertrial created a ruckus in the courtroom Tuesday, hurling abuses at the metropolitan magistrate and scuffling with court staff and police.
The woman, Padma Panchal, a resident of Jal Sarovar apartment in Maninagar, is accused in a case that was lodged in 2009 after she allegedly beat up another woman.
During the case hearing today, Panchal's cellphone rang and she received the call. The magistrate objected to this and asked her to switch off the phone, but she refused.
According to eye-witnesses, the magistrate then told the bench clerk to seize the phone, but Panchal abused the bench clerk also. She started shouting following which court officials called Karanj police along with women constables.
Eye-witnesses said Panchal got into a scuffle with the women constables also before she was taken to the police station.
Good Class XII results cheer up engg colleges
The Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) officials say there were no chance of seats in degree engineering colleges remaining vacant this year owing to more than 74,000 students, out of 1.05 lakh having passed Std XII science examinations, eligible for admission to degree engineering courses.
Speaking to The Indian Express, ACPC secretary M N Patel said there was a total of 63,113 seats available in 121 degree engineering colleges across the state that included 16 government, three grant-in-aid and two private public partnership (PPP) colleges, besides 100 self-financed institutes.
According to him, there were another 6,000 students from CBSE schools in the state who are also eligible for admission to engineering courses in states colleges. Besides, the state government has also passed a law allowing five per cent of the management quota seats in SFIs to be filled up by students outside the state.
"With so many students that would be available this year, seats in all the colleges are likely to be filled up," said Patel.
