In a setback to the Andhra Pradesh government, the Supreme Court today quashed a petition against the division of the common High Court in Hyderabad that cited lack of facilities and infrastructure.
AP advocates moved the apex court against the bifurcation of the High Court claiming a lack of adequate facilities for a High Court in AP. After hearing the petition, Justice Sikri and Justice Nazeer dismissed it saying that the court could not intervene in the issue. Initial problems were common for new High Courts, the court said.
The advocates withdrew their petition later.
The High Court has already been divided, and the Chief Justices and other judges have taken oaths of office.
