Maharashtra CM Fadnavis welcomes SC judgement upholding arrest of 5 activists in Bhima Koregaon matter

The Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court to stay away from the arrest of the activists by the Maharastra Police in connection with a plot to kill the Prime Minister and for their alleged role in Bhima-Koregaon violence. Devendra Fadnavis hailing the decision of the top court called the verdict as “Great victory for Pune Police and country”.

“We welcome the decision. On basis of investigation conducted & evidence collected by Pune Police, it has been considered valid & SC has said it’ll not interfere in the investigation” Fadnavis said.  He further added that the Supreme Court has accepted that there is no political influence and the arrests were not made to suppress the voice of the opposition.

According to the reports, Fadnavis said that the Maharastra Police have become aware of many more instances of Urban Naxal network and their modus operandi, while they were investigating the arrests of these five activists. “They were trying to create a civil war, they were trying to give an urban face to the Naxalites in the country and were trying to shield them.” the Chief Minister said while addressing the media in Mumbai.

Maharashtra Chief Minister slammed the critics and said, “Certain Pseudo-liberals, neoliberals and so-called liberals were using the media to claim that there was no evidence. We have got all the material pieces of evidence, which we will provide to the court”, said Fadnavis. While speaking to the media, he said that the Urban Naxals were doing this for many years but the probe agencies did not have sufficient evidence to investigate them.

The statements from Devendra Fadnavis comes after recent Supreme Court verdict, which refused to interfere with the arrests and also refused to constitute SIT and asked the Pune police to go ahead with their probe in connection with the arrest of five activists who were allegedly involved in an assassination plot to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Pune Police had conducted raids and arrested the five accused last month. The arrested persons were accused of links with Maoists networks. The arrests were in relation to the Bhima Koregaon violence. Earlier, the Pune police had arrested Rona Wilson, Surendra Gadling, Shoma Sen, Mahesh Raut and Sudhir Dhavle in the case. The arrested persons in August raids had moved to the Supreme court and had obtained an order for house arrest instead of judicial custody.
