Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday dire-cted the authorities of AP’s NTR Health Univ-ersity and Telangana’s Kaloji Health University against conducting any further counselling for admissions into superspecialty courses till further orders.

A division bench comprising Justice V. Ram-asubramanian and Just-ice T. Rajani was hearing batch of cases challenging the decision of the convener of NEET against admitting the students from AP and Telangana into any of the universities outside these two states.
