New Delhi [India], Oct 23 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to set up a bench to urgently hear a petition filed by the Goa government seeking resumption of construction work of a new international airport in the state.
Earlier the court had suspended the environmental clearance granted to the project leading to the stoppage of its construction work
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi stated that the present situation does not "permit them (the judges) to change the composition of the bench" which is hearing the case.
The counsel, however, asserted that half of the case has already been heard by the apex court. (ANI)
