Supreme Court of IndiaIt said the object of a moratorium provision such as Section 14 is to see that there is no depletion of a corporate debtor’s assets during the insolvency resolution process so that it can be kept running as a going concern during this time, thus maximising value for all stakeholders.

The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a clutch of petitions demanding investigations into the tractor rally violence in the national capital on Republic Day. However, it allows petitioners to file representation before the government. CJI SA Bobde led bench of Supreme Court heard petitions seeking inquiry or a probe into the violence during a tractor rally held in Delhi on Republic Day.

Beginning the argument, advocate Vishal Tiwari said that the unfortunate incident happened on January 26. He said both sides were responsible but people suffered. To this, the CJI said the bench “read a statement by the PMO that Law will take its own course. So we will leave it to the Centre and they are looking into it.” Tiwari then said let probe not be one sided. The CJI responded saying the prayer was based on the fact that it was going to be one sided. “What is an investigation? It has to take all sides into account…Matter disposed off. Allowed to withdraw,” he said.

Advocate Shikha Dixit said police were beaten up and there was violence. The CJI said that the bench cannot look into this and there was nothing to fear.
