NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Chhattisgarh government to give advance notice of four weeks to DU professor and activist Nandini Sundar and others before proceeding against them in the case relating to the alleged murder of a tribal man in the Naxal-affected areas of the State.
The apex court also took on record the assurance given by the State government that Sundar and others, who have been booked for the alleged murder, will not be arrested or interrogated as of now. A Bench of justices M B Lokur and Adarsh Goel granted liberty to Sundar and others to approach the court if any notice of arrest or interrogation is served upon them.
“ASG Tushar Mehta says that Nandini Sundar, Archana Prasad, Vineet Tiwari and others will not be arrested or interrogated. State government is directed to give four weeks advance notice before proceeding in the case,” said the Bench.
