Will drop Koregaon Bhima cases: Uddhav to NCP leaders
Times of India / by Prafulla Marpakwar & Swati Deshpande
MUMBAI: Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday assured a delegation of NCP leaders that criminal cases filed against Dalit activists in connection with the violence at Bhima-Koregaon on January 2 and 3, 2018 would be withdrawn as early as possible …
The Bhima-Koregaon cases are different from the ones related to the Elgar Parishad rally held before the January violence. Nine activists held in the Elgar Parishad case have been accused of having links with the banned CPI (Maoist), which Pune police claim supported and funded the Elgar Parishad in Pune on December 31, 2017.
