The first of the three Russian hypersonic missile scientists to be arrested on suspicion of treason will go on trial next week in a case which apparently involves accusations of betraying secrets to foreign adversaries. The criminal case against Anatoly Maslov, 76, will open in Saint Petersburg’s city court on June 1. The St. Petersburg City Court also ruled on May 24 that Maslov's detention would be extended until at least November 10. Soon after his arrest, authorities had flown him to Moscow and put him in pre-trial detention in Lefortovo prison…a former KGB interrogation site where Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich is also being held. The details of the case are classified, but some local media reports cited sources close to scientific circles as saying that the three scholars are suspected of handing information related to their research to China.

The Supreme Court delivered its verdict on the June 2022 political crisis in Maharashtra triggered by the rift in the Shiv Sena leading to two factions- one led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath and the other by Uddhav Thackeray. The bench led by CJI DY Chandrachud also comprised Justices MR Shah, Krishna Murari, Hima Kohli and PS Narasimha. In a major decision the SC refused to interfere with the formation of Eknath Shinde government with the support of BJP, as Uddhav Thackeray resigned without facing a floor test. However the apex court bench led by CJI DY Chandrachud said that the governor in his decision to hold the floor test and the Speaker in his decision of appointing the whip of the Eknath Shinde Group were wrong. The Court held that it cannot order the restoration of Uddhav Thackeray government as he resigned without facing a floor test. Had Uddhav not resigned, the CJI said, he would have ordered in favour of restoration of the government.
