Mumbai, Jun 20 (PTI) The Bombay High Court will resume hearing from July 4 on a bunch of revision petitions challenging the discharge of some senior police officers accused in the alleged fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Shaikh.
However, the pleas were mentioned today jointly by
advocates for the petitioners and the respondents (the
discharged police officers), before a single bench presided by
Justice A M Badar.
At the time of change of assignments in February, a single bench presided by Justice Revati Mohite Dere had been conducting hearings on these revision applications on a day-to-day basis.
The bench had completed hearings on three of the five pleas.
While the change had led to much speculation, the high court's registrar termed it as a "routine change".
A CBI probe termed both the incidents as 'fake' encounters and charged 38 people as accused.
