HC junks plea to hear petition on discharge of Amit ShahOctober 21, 2015
The Bombay High Court today dismissed an application filed by a social worker urging the court to suo motu hear a petition challenging the discharge of BJP president Amit Shah in the alleged fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Shaikh.
Justice Anuja Prabhudessai, while dismissing the application filed by Rajesh Kamble, observed that he was not an aggrieved party in the case and, hence, has no ‘locus’.
Kamble filed the intervening application yesterday after Sohrabuddin’s brother Rubabuddin Shaikh moved a plea to withdraw a petition he had filed earlier challenging a special CBI court’s order discharging Amit Shah from the charges levelled against him.
In his application, Kamble claimed that even if the applicant (Rubabuddin) wants to withdraw his petition, the court can continue hearing the case suo motu (on its own).
Another social activist Harish Mandal today made an oral plea to the court seeking to intervene in the case. The Judge, however, refused to hear him.
The HC yesterday gave one month’s time to Rubabuddin to think again on withdrawing his petition.
