SC dismisses pleas of C’garh govt in toolkit case against ex-CM Raman Singh, Sambit Patra

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday, September 22,   refused to entertain two separate appeals of the Chhattisgarh government against orders of the High Court granting a stay on investigation in an FIR registered against senior BJP leader and Ex-Chief Minister Raman Singh and the party’s spokesperson Sambit Patra for their tweets with regard the alleged fake toolkit case.

 A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana said: “Let the Chhattisgarh High Court decide the case.” The benchsaid that the present cases cannot be granted separate treatment as there are many cases pertaining to the toolkit issue that are pending in various high courts. “Don't waste your energy here. We are not inclined to entertain the special leave petitions. We dismiss the SLPs,” the bench said when senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for the state, wanted to refer to records of the case.

The Supre court requested the Chhattisgarh High court to decide right away the pleas iin connection with the fake toolkit case, saying the matters be decided without being influenced by earlier observations.

It was on June 11, that the Chhattisgarh High Court passed two separate orders and granted interim reliefs in the same FIR lodged against Singh and Patra while noting that averments in the FIR reflected that “by the tweets, Congressmen are aggravated which clearly indicates that no public peace or tranquillity is being adversely affected and it is purely political rivalry between two political parties”.
