Solicitor General declines nod to prosecute Swara Bhasker

Aug 27, 2020 12:38 IST

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Wednesday refused consent to plea seeking initiation of criminal contempt of court proceedings against Bollywood actor Swara Bhaskar for her alleged 'derogatory and scandalous' statements against the Supreme Court over the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case verdict. Attorney General K K Venugopal had earlier denied the initiation saying Bhasker's comment appeared to be her 'perception' about the issue. Under Section 15 of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1071, the consent of either the Attorney General or the Solicitor General is necessary to initiate contempt proceedings against a person.
