SC refuses to allow Delhi violence victim to intervene in activist Harsh Mander case

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court today refused to allow a victim of the recent Delhi violence to intervene in a matter in which the Centre has raised the issue of alleged hate speech by activist Harsh Mander during anti-CAA protests.

Senior advocate Colin Gonsalves mentioned the matter before a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde and said the riot victim wanted to intervene in the Harsh Mander case, which is scheduled to be heard tomorrow. While reminding Gonsalves of his unwarranted presence in the proceedings, the CJI said, the Solicitor General has been asked to put video of alleged hate speech by Mander on record.

The Delhi Police had Wednesday filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court against Mander and sought initiation of contempt proceedings against him for alleged "derogatory remarks" against the Apex court and its judges. The affidavit was filed after the Centre's allegation before the Supreme Court that Mander, who has sought registering of FIRs against some BJP leaders for their alleged hate speeches, himself had made certain objectionable remarks against the top court, the government and the Parliament.

The Supreme Court had taken strong note of the Centre's allegations. It refused to hear Mander's counsel Karuna Nundy till the issue of his alleged hate speech is "sorted". The Apex Court also kept his petition to itself while transferring other pleas related to the violence to the Delhi High Court.
