Supreme Court refuses to hear plea seeking proper mechanism to deal with alleged misuse of sedition law.

On Friday, Supreme Court refused to entertain a plea seeking framing of a proper mechanism to deal with alleged misuse of the sedition law by the government machinery.

Supreme  Court Bench headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar dismissed the petition which was filed by a social activist.

Bench stated that it was open for the petitioner to approach the appropriate authority.

SC Bench told advocate Utsav Singh Bains, appearing for the petitioner, that he could not seek quashing of an FIR in a sedition case filed against the management of a Karnataka school for allegedly allowing students to stage an anti-CAA and anti-NRC drama.

Advocate submitted before the Bench that he was not pressing for a prayer of FIR quashing and that the petitioner has sought a direction for framing of a proper mechanism to deal with the alleged misuse of the sedition law.

While refusing to hear the plea, Bench stated that,”Let the affected party come and we will hear them. Why it should be done at your instance”.
