Govind Pansare murder case: Bombay HC raps Devendra Fadnavis

ANI  |  General News 

The Bombay High Court on Thursday rapped Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for slow investigation in rationalist Govind Pansare's murder case.

The court observed that the Chief Minister has no time for the case.

In February, Maharashtra's Special Investigation Team (SIT) had filed a supplementary charge sheet in Kolhapur court against the four accused in the 2015 murder case.

The accused, namely Amol Arvind Kale, Vasudev Bhagwan Suryvanshi, Bharat Jayant Kurne, and Amit Ramchandra Digvekar, were booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Pansare, a Communist Party of India leader, who was known for his rationalist views, was shot dead in Kolhapur on February 20, 2015. His wife, too, was injured in the attack.
