The Supreme Court today directed the Maharashtra government to place on record the details of the inquiry against police personnel in the Palghar Sadhu lynching case.
The bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice R. Subhash Reddy heard a petition filed by Mahant Shradhananad Saraswati and six other Sadhus of the Juna Akhara and Ghanshyam Upadhyay seeking CBI and NIA probe into the investigation of the Palghar Lyncing case alleging bias in the present investigation by the state authorities.
The bench said that the Maharashtra government should file before the court the copies of the chargesheets lodged in the case. The court said that it wants to examine the chargesheets.
The Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had suggested that the chargesheets should be filed before court as well. “Let the court decide whether it’s relevant or not”, he stated.
