Gujarat Govt to File Chargesheet Against Hardik Patel


Mumbai: Gujarat government has decided to chargesheet Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) convener Hardik Patel in a sedition case. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told a bench headed by Justice J S Khehar that the state police has prepared the chargesheet and placed its draft before the court.

The bench, however, refused to examine the chargesheet and asked the state govt to file it before trial court by January 8. It said that the court would examine the chargesheet and would find out whether offence of sedition is made out against Patel on January 14.

The court also directed the state to supply the copy of chargesheet to Patel immediately after it being filed in lower court.
