Nagpur Police has issued summons issued in the name of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Summons were served at his house. Fadnavis is accused of hiding two criminal cases filed against himself in his election affidavit.
The summons is served at a time when Fadnavis’ chair has gone. Under the leadership of Uddhav Thackeray, the Shiv Sena has formed a government with the Congress-NCP. Fadnavis is an MLA from Nagpur. The hearing on the petition started from November 1. It has demanded criminal action against Fadnavis.
The Supreme Court rejected the Bombay High Court’s order, in which the trial court was barred from investigating the election-related complaint against Fadnavis. The apex court has allowed the trial court to examine whether Fadnavis has concealed criminal cases in the nomination papers filed.
A complaint was filed in the Magistrate’s Court against Fadnavis by Satish Uike. It demanded a case against him for not disclosing all the details of pending criminal cases. The case was dismissed by the High Court. Then, the petitioner filed an appeal in the apex court. Cases of forgery and fraud were filed against Fadnavis in 1996 and 1998, but charges were not framed in both the cases.
