Auraiya, District Auraiya.The A.G.A. appearing for the State, vehemently opposed the application for anticipatory bail.While observing that no case for the grant of Anticipatory Bail to the Applicant (Sameer Khan) is made out, the Single Bench of Justice Rajeev Misra stated,”Perusal of F.I.R. shows that the crime alleged to have been committed by the present applicant is an economic offence, which can disrupt the economy of the country. Therefore, the crime alleged to have been committed by the present applicant along with other co-accused is a crime against society.” (emphasis supplied)In view of the aforesaid, the Court rejected the application for Anticipatory Bail of the Applicant.It may be noted that in the year 2019, the Calcutta High Court in the context of S. 489B of IPC, had ruled that possession of large quantity counterfeit currency in concealed manner is active transportation amounting to trafficking.Also, in the year 2018, the bench comprising Justice Ranjit More and Justice Bharati H Dangre of Bombay High Court had observed that mere use of any forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank notes cannot attract the provisions of Section 489(B), when mens rea is conspicuously absent.The Bombay HC had quashed the criminal prosecution against a woman from whom some counterfeit currency notes were found in the cash she had brought for depositing in the bank after demonetisation. “When mens rea is conspicuously absent, mere use of any forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank notes cannot attract the provisions of Section 489(B). The essential ingredient of the said offence being that the person, who receives the notes has reason to believe that the said notes are forged or counterfeit”, the Court had noted.

Area Schools Will Have to Make Up Snow Days in June

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAfter a number of snow days, area schools are looking to face some make up days in June.The state of Michigan requires school districts to have at least 1,098 hours of education, and a minimum of 175 days of in school education to receive the full state school aid fund.Schools are allowed six days off due to weather, illness or other major problems, but will have to make up anytime after that. So far Alpena Public Schools will have to make up one school day in June due to this week’s snow.“As of right now we have one day that we will be making up. We are past our six days that the state allows and forgives us on for weather issues, so we had our 7th so we will have one (make up day) as of right now. If we have anymore, those days will be added on at the end of the year,” Superintendent, Van Wagoner said. The make up days will not interfere with senior’s graduation, but when it comes to other events such as sports; that’s a different story.“Graduation is pretty well set. We have the ability to have our seniors still be able to get out earlier. The state gives us previsions as far as attendance numbers to be able to that. But as far as events, that’s where it’s gets real tricky. A lot of times we cancel and we try to reschedule. Finding days to be able to do that, that really gets tricky and unfortunately sometimes we’re not able to reschedule events but we try our absolute hardest to make sure our kids get those opportunities when we can find a way to work with another school district to find a way to make up that event,” he added.As for other area schools, Hillman Community Schools has been out for 7 days. Alcona Community Schools has been out 6 days, and Rogers City Area Schools have been out for 8 days but have longer grace periods for make up days.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alcona Community Schools, Alpena Public Schools, Hillman Community Schools, Rogers City Area Schools, School Make Up Days, Snow DaysContinue ReadingPrevious Good Morning Alpena Showcases ‘Cool Things We Make Part Two’Next Meth Bust: Two Arrested in Otsego Countylast_img read more
