Louis Berger: HC asks for govt affidavits

Taking up a public interest litigation filed by an organization on Tuesday, a division bench of the high court said that the allegations of bribery was serious in nature and asked GMDA and Dispur to submit affidavits by the next 15 days.

The court was scheduled to take up the PIL on Monday. But it was not possible because the bar association strike that paralyzed the normal functionings.
