The Supreme Court on Monday heard some crucial cases, during which the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) told the SC that it was not investigating the Adani group since 2016 and termed such claims factually baseless". 

Some of the other important cases by the apex court are:

- The NIA opposed a plea by activist Gautam Navlakha, who is under house arrest in a public library in Mumbai in the Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case, that he be shifted to a house in the Alibag area of Maharashtra's Raigad. 

- The Supreme Court deferred to August 14 its hearing on CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat's plea related to the non-registration of FIRs against BJP MPs Anurag Thakur and Pravesh Verma for their alleged hate speeches in connection with the anti-CAA protests. 

- It said it will hear on Tuesday a plea challenging the Kerala High Court order refusing to stay the release of the movie "The Kerala Story" which hit theatres on May 5.

- The court refused to entertain a plea challenging the Bombay High Court order which had dismissed a petition against Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar and Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju over their remarks on the judiciary and the collegium system for appointment of judges. 

- The apex court turned down a plea seeking directions to include details of missing persons from every household in the census. 

- It also refused to entertain a plea seeking directions to clean rivers Ganga and Yamuna and monitor the action plan for their rejuvenation, saying there is a specialised tribunal for this.

Here's a list of some important cases heard by the Delhi High Court:
