Bhima Koregaon case: Supreme Court sets aside Delhi HC order demanding judicial records from NIA

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday set aside the Delhi High Court order asking the NIA to produce judicial records on transfer of civil rights activist Gautam Navlakha from Delhi to Mumbai in connection with the Bhima Koregaon case.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra, Navin Sinha and Indira Banerjee said that the high court had no jurisdiction in entertaining Navlakha's bail plea and held that courts in Bombay had the jurisdiction in the case.

The top court also expunged adverse remarks of the high court against the National Investigation Agency (NIA) made in its 27 May order while dealing with the bail plea.

The apex court had earlier stayed the 27 May order of the high court by which the NIA was pulled up for acting in haste in taking away Navlakha from Tihar Jail to Mumbai.

On 27 May, the high court had pulled up the NIA for acting in unseemly haste in taking away Navlakha from the national capital to Mumbai even when his interim bail plea was pending here.
