Court rejects Rummy club petitions

The Hyderabad High Court has rejected Rummy club pleas for non-interference by Police, after the authorities allegedly interfered with the petitioner’s Rummy clubs.

According to the Deccan Chronicle, Justice A Ramalingeswara Rao dismissed petitions by MLAS’ Colony Residents Welfare and Cultural Association, Hyderabad, Advocates’ Recreation Club, Karimnagar, Navodaya Sports and Cultural Association and ABS Town Hall of West Godavari district.

The Police of the states concerned denied the allegations of interference, stating that the petitioners approached the Court on mere apprehension.

The judge said, “It is difficult for anyone to say what is happening inside the premises. When the fish is in water it is commonly said that it is difficult to prove whether fish is drinking water or not.

In such circumstances, the better option for the Courts is to apply the law only whenever the cause of action arises on the facts of a particular case in the light of the provisions of the Act, but not on mere apprehension, assertions and denials.”
