Division bench of Justice SJ Kathawalla and Justice NR Borkar were hearing the writ petition filed by Samir Patel who sought release of the parcel containing ‘Osmolite Nutrio N-Food for Tube Feeding Patient’. Senior Advocate Venkatesh Dhond appeared on behalf of the petitioner and Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appeared on behalf of respondent authorities including the Commissioner of Customs, Airport Special Cargo Commissionerate. At first, ASG Singh sought to join the aforesaid Commissioner as a respondent in the matter which was allowed. Then, the Court directed DHL to file the Bill of Entry with the Commissioner of Customs, Airport Special Cargo Commissionerate in in the next one hour and asked ASG Singh to forward the email address of the Commissioner to the petitioner through his office. Court asked the petitioners to fill up Form No.7 (for Customs Duty Exemption certificate) and forward it to the Commissioner of Customs who has been directed to process the documents received and ensure that the parcel containing ‘Osmolite Nutrio N-Food for Tube Feeding Patient’, is handed over to the petitioner’s advocates or their representative within 24 hours. In December 2016, the petitioner was diagnosed with oral cancer and due to remedial surgical operations, his intake of food/nutrients is only possible through a feeding tube. The feeding tubes are required to be imported from time to time from the USA. The petitioner has imported four boxes of such feeding tubes from the US through the DHL Courier Agency. However, the Assistant Commissioner of Customs, Air Cargo Complex withheld the said packets on grounds unclear to the petitioner. In Tuesday’s hearing, the petitioner contended that the said feeding tubes are not available in India and there is also no alternative available. Moreover, the petitioner has a stock of the feeding tubes which will last only for a very few days. This matter will now be heard on June 22 at 11 am.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

This past weekend, NYC-based soul-pop upstarts Lawrence completed the east coast leg of their ongoing New Stuff Tour, which saw them play to packed houses at large venues in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, Boston, and Philadelphia. The shows saw the band, led by the brother-and-sister duo of Clyde and Gracie Lawrence, feature a mix of material from their critically acclaimed debut, 2016’s Breakfast, reimagined covers like their jazz-funk arrangement of Sean Paul‘s reggaeton smash “Get Busy” and, of course, new material that will be featured on their highly anticipated sophomore LP, Living Room, set for a September 14th release.Below, you can check out a full fan-shot video of Lawrence’s opening number at their sold-out hometown show at Brooklyn Steel on Friday. “Limbo”, the thoroughly catchy, fast-paced, Latin-tinged track, saw Gracie put her powerful pipes to work on lead vocals as Clyde (on keys and claps) led the band through the tune’s dynamically complex accompaniment. By the time they were finished playing it, “Limbo” was already stuck in everyone’s heads—a familiar quality of Lawrence originals that’s just as true of the new material they’re road-testing as it is of the songs from their debut.“Limbo” – LawrenceAhead of the New Stuff Tour‘s launch, the band also released their first studio single from Living Room: the smooth, sincere brass-bolstered ballad, “Try”. Give a listen to the official studio version of Lawrence’s “Try” via Spotify below:Lawrence – “Try” <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>According to a quote from the band in the album announcement,We wrote Living Room over the course of the past two years in our family’s living room. It’s important to us that when you hear the songs we write, you feel like you are getting to know us as people. In short, this album is about growing up, and everything that comes with it. So each song is a little window into a moment in our lives, whether that be a fight we had with a loved one, a night of insomnia, or a bite of spicy food that we weren’t prepared for.You can view a full tracklist for Lawrence’s Living Room and check out a list of their upcoming New Stuff Tour dates below.

“Dawsquid, lobo-lobo gina process dira, gina preserve kag ginadala sa Taiwan,” Pinuela told Panay News. The laboratory wasn’t sure what thesubstance was because this had been contaminated, according to Police MajorJonathan Pinuela, chief of Iloilo Police Provincial Office’s (IPPO)Intelligence Division. “I was able to talk to the chemist, Police Lieutenant Baldivieso. The contaminationmade them unable to determine, too, if the substance was a precursor of illegaldrugs,” said Pinuela, ‘So gin butang ya negative.” A confirmatory test would beconducted, said Pinuela, this time by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency(PDEA). “Samples would also be sent to Manilafor further analysis if the substance was illegal drugs or precursor of illegaldrugs,” he added.

A jury found Christopher Vasata guilty Thursday on all five charges in the 2017 triple murder at a Jupiter Super Bowl party.The jurors, who deliberated for about two hours, will return next week to recommend whether Vasata should face the death penalty for murdering 24-year old Brandi El Salhy, 20-year-old Kelli Doherty and 26-year-old Sean Henry.Vasata is guilty on three counts of first-degree murder with a firearm, as well as one count of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, and grand theft auto.A co-defendant, Marcus Steward, will be tried at a later date. He also faces the death penalty.During closing arguments, prosecutors said that Vasata and one or two other men went on a “mission of evil” at Charles Vorpagel’s home, located at 1105 Mohawk Street in Jupiter, on February 5, 2017. Vorpagel, Henry, El Salhy, and Doherty were gathered around a fire pit during the football game.One prosecutor said, “And they ambushed four helpless sitting ducks, sitting out in the backyard.”Vorpagel testified that he did not recognize the attackers due to their clothing and masks, although he recognized the voice of rival drug dealer Luke Kutsukos, who said something before the gunfire started. Vasata’s defense team also raised the possibility that Kutsukos, who has not been charged in the case up to now, was the real gunman.Prosecutors used DNA and physical evidence to connect Vasata to the crime scene. Evidence used in the trial included a .40 caliber Glock handgun which prosecutors say Vasata used to kill Henry, who was the intended target of the shootings.They added that Vasata only dropped the gun when he was shot in the buttocks by a fellow attacker, which could have been either co-defendant Marcus Steward or a third, unidentified gunman.Meanwhile, Vasata’s defense team asked the jury to consider that piece of evidence, arguing: “Mr. Vasata was shot as they have told you with a high-powered rifle, exactly the same as all three of those individuals who were there at Mohawk Street. And he was shot in the back, twice. Twice. You don’t know it was accidental. We don’t know what the relationship was between Mr. Kutsukos and Mr. Vasata when Mr. Vasata was trying to negotiate some type of détente to the conflict that was going on. It’s all speculation.”The judge has scheduled next Wednesday and Thursday for the penalty phase of the trial.
