No relief for activists, SC sets aside Bombay HC order

No relief for activists, SC sets aside Bombay HC order

New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave no relief to five activists named in the Bhima Koregaon caste violence case and set aside a Bombay High Court order allowing another 90 days to the Maharashtra Police to file charge sheet.

The five accused activists -- Surendra Gadling, Sudhir Dhawale, Mahesh Rout, Roma Wilson and Soma Sen -- will not be able to have the benefit of default as the apex court said they now must apply for regular bail.

A trial court had under the Unlawful Prevention Activities Act granted the Maharashtra Police additional 90 days time to file a charge sheet that was beyond a 90-day deadline under the Code of Criminal Procedure.

 

The activists were arrested from various locations in August 2018 for their alleged role in instigating caste violence in Maharashtra's Bhima Koregaon village on January 1, 2018.
