The Supreme Court will Thursday hear a plea seeking restraint on the Odisha government from freeing 29 imprisoned suspected Maoists and their sympathisers in exchange for the release of ruling Biju Janata Dal’s legislator Jhina Hikaka, who was abducted by the rebels March 24.

The apex court bench of Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice Gyan Sudha Misra has asked Solicitor General Rohinton Nariman to appear in the matter. Petitioner Gagandeep Singh is a retired army officer and a counter-insurgency expert.
