Navlakha never es­poused vi­o­lence, says his coun­sel

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Na­tion -

The Bombay HC granted Navlakha in­terim pro­tec­tion for three weeks to ap­proach the SC. Agree­ing to hear his plea, a bench of Jus­tices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta ex­tended his in­terim pro­tec­tion which was ex­pir­ing on Fri­day.

“Cer­tain ma­te­rial which was pro­duced be­fore HC, in a sealed cover, is not avail­able today. The learned coun­sel ap­pear­ing for Ma­ha­rash­tra has prayed for time to pro­duce the ma­te­rial. List the pe­ti­tion for fur­ther hear­ing on Oc­to­ber 15. In the mean­time, in­terim pro­tec­tion granted by the HC shall con­tinue,” the bench said.

Chal­leng­ing the ac­tion of Ma­ha­rash­tra Po­lice to ini­ti­ate crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion, se­nior ad­vo­cate Ab­hishek Manu Singhvi con­tended that Navlakha never es­poused vi­o­lence and he had spo­ken and writ­ten ex­ten­sively against such ac­tions and also re­jected al­le­ga­tions that he is linked to Maoists work­ing to­wards over­throw­ing the gov­ern­ment.
