The Supreme Court has dismissed a petition challenging its refusal to indict Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a 2007 case alleging hate speech.

A bench composed of India’s Chief Justice NV Ramana, Justice Hima Kohli and Justice CT Ravikumar announced the verdict.

“Under the circumstances described above, we do not consider it necessary to address any legal issues surrounding the sanctions issue. Therefore, the appeal is dismissed. Legal issues remain unresolved,” said Judge Ravikumar. I have read the essential parts of the judgment. The full text of the decision has not yet been uploaded.

Complainant Parvez Parwaz was alleging Yogi Adityanath at a rally in Gorakhpur on the 27th.

He challenged the UP government decision of May 3, 2017, which refused to prosecute Adityanath and sanction the final report filed in the case. He previously appealed to the Allahabad High Court, which dismissed his petition on February 22, 2018, urging the High Court to apply for special leave.

At the final hearing in the matter, Fuzzail Ayyubi, an attorney who appeared on behalf of the complainant, said a final report on the matter had been drafted and investigators said that the CID had passed Sections 143, 153 and 153A. He said he had clearly demonstrated what he had discovered. , in the 295A offence, he has a 505 I.P.C. identified. He explained that this would be rejected by the legal department. By contrast, Mukul Rohatgi, a senior attorney representing Uttar Pradesh, said the CSFL would not allow the CD in question containing the alleged hate speech to be tampered with. and said it was a forgery.
