Court issue notice to Fadnavis for non-disclosure about two cases in poll affidavit
 
Nagpur: A court here on Monday issued notice to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on a plea alleging for not disclosing about his two criminal cases in an election affidavit.

The matter came fore when local social worker and city-based lawyer Adv Satis Uke contended that the BJP leader, Devendra Fadnavis had filed a false affidavit in 2014 by not disclosing two pending criminal cases against him.

Subsequently, the Supreme Court, on October 1, directed the magistrate's court to go ahead with the application filed by Adv Uke seeking initiation of criminal proceedings against Mr Fadnavis in the matter.

"The notice has been issued against Fadnavis for offence punishable under section 125A of Representation of People Act, 1951," magistrate S D Mehta said in the order.

The chief minister has been given time till December 4 to reply to the notice.

The cases of cheating and forgery were filed against Fadnavis in 1996 and 1998, but charges were not framed in both the matters.

Adv Uke had filed an application in the magistrate's court in 2014 seeking criminal proceedings to be initiated against Fadnavis.

In 2015, the magistrate's court had dismissed Uke's application, after which he moved the sessions court in 2016 which allowed the application.

Fadnavis then challenged the sessions court's order in the Bombay High Court, which quashed the sessions court's order and upheld the magistrate's order dismissing the application.

Uke filed an appeal in the Supreme Court, which on October 1 set aside the High Court order.

The Appex Court order noted that, prima facie, a case under section 125 of the Representation of the People Act (hiding information or furnishing false information in poll affidavit) was made out.

It directed the magistrate's court to go ahead with Adv Uke's application. On November 1, the magistrate's court in Nagpur restored Uke's application.

The magistrate's court on Monday said the case would be held as a summary criminal case and issued notice to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis
