  1. The present application is filed by the petitioners seeking directions to the respondents to stay the convening of extraordinary general meeting ('EGM') on 26th September, 2011, in the alternative suspend the resolution if any passed in the said EGM, and the bank account of the R1-company to be operated with the joint signature of petitioner No. 1 and respondent No. 2 till the disposal of the main CP, no general or Board meetings be held till the CP is disposed of, not to change the shareholding pattern of the R1-company and not to alienate, encumber or dispose of any movable and immovable property of the R1-company. Shri Omkar, learned PCS appearing for the applicants submitted that the respondent No. 2 issued notice dated 16th September, 2011 calling Board meeting on 17th September, 2011. The Board meeting was called to decide, inter alia, matter for calling EGM on 26th September, 2011 deciding the matter as to removal of petitioner No. 1 under section 284(1) of the Act due to the requisition received by respondent No. 1 under section 169 of the Act issued by respondent Nos. 2 to 5.

This will prejudice the position of petitioner Nos. 1 to 4.

Further such removal is proposed in spite of earlier order of the CLB, Mumbai Bench, Mumbai dated 24th August, 2011 where precedence was established.
