Rona Wilson and Professor Shoma Sen, who are accused in the Elgar Parishad Case have sought quashing of the FIR.
The Bombay High Court has issued notice to the Maharashtra government to file a reply to the allegations made by Rona Wilson and Professor Shoma Sen, who are accused in the Elgar Parishad case. Labelled as Urban Naxals, the two are languishing in jail and have sought quashing of the FIR. Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appearing for the investigating agency said that NIA has filed an affidavit in reply to the petition filed by Wilson but needed time to file a reply to Sen's petition. Indira Jaising appearing for Wilson, however, asked a pertinent question during the hearing on Tuesday. Jaising said that the petitions questioned the sanction granted by the Maharashtra government on November 14, 2018. "Either, he (Singh)speaks for the Maharashtra government as well or Maharashtra government will have to come before the court. We have made them party to the petition."
