There are various matters pending with the High Court of Andhra Pradesh out of these various matters 3 had been dismissed based on territorial jurisdiction aspect. Now, as in the present matter the appeal has been admitted by the division bench of the High Court comprising of Chief Justice Nisar Ahmad Kakru and Justice Vilas Afzalpurkar, it would be interesting to see if the matters could be decided by other Courts, or if only Delhi High Court is the only way out.
