Bombay HC earlier directed the Maharashtra police to not arrest activist Gautam Navlakha and Journalist Gautam Navlakha in the Bhima Koregaon Case


In a relief to activist Anand Teltumbde and Journalist Gautam Navlakha, Bombay High Court on Thursday extended the solace granted earlier in connection with the Bhima Koregaon Violence case and for their alleged links with the banned group Communist Party of India (Maoist).

A bench including Justices, Ranjit More and Bharati Dangre, passed an order extending the relief granted to them till November 21 while hearing the petitions seeking to quash an FIR registered against them by Pune Police. 

Earlier in October, Bombay HC ordered Maharashtra government and its police to not take any stringent action against the activist or arrest them until October 26.

After Pune Police carried out a multi-city raid on August 28, along with Gautam Navlakha, four other activists and human rights lawyer were also arrested including Sudha Bhardwaj, Vara Vara Rao, Vernon Gonsalves, and Arun Ferreira. However, Teltumbde was not arrested. 

Earlier, after Delhi High Court released Navlakha of the house arrest he moved to Bombay HC seeking the quashing of FIR against him.
