Koregaon: SC asks activists to surrender in a week

Apr 08, 2020 17:16 IST

The Supreme Court Wednesday directed civil rights activists Gautam Navlakha and Anand Teltumbde to surrender to jail authorities within a week in the Bhima Koregaon violence case. The SC said the time will not be extended now as the courts are functioning in Maharashtra. The activists, who were directed by the apex court on March 16 to surrender within three weeks, moved the plea seeking extension of time on the ground that going to jail during ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is "virtually a death sentence".
