Devendra Fadnavis to face trial for suppressing pendency of criminal cases in poll affidavit
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi passed the orders on the plea filed by one Satish Ukey
New Delhi: In a jolt to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the Supreme Court on Tuesday set aside the Bombay High Court order and directed the BJP leader to face trial for allegedly failing to furnish details of two pending criminal cases. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi passed the orders on the plea filed by one Satish Ukey.
On July 23, the top court, while reserving the verdict, had said that the alleged "omission" by Fadnavis of not disclosing information about two criminal cases in his election affidavit in the 2014 assembly polls may be decided in the trial.
