BENGALURU: The High Court on Tuesday declined to stay an order issued by the city police restricting All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) from organising a public rally in city.

The party was planning a public rally at the Chota Maidan in Shivajinagar on Tuesday afternoon, ahead of BBMP elections. MIM president Asauddin Owaisi was to address it.

However, the city police had denied permission for the rally citing law and order problem. MIM challenged it in the High Court.

Justice Bopanna has asked the authorities to take inputs from the police before granting MIM permission to organise a political rally. The party can seek permission from the returning officer, city police and the person concerned at the venue, Justice Bopanna said.

The high court clarified that the returning officers should consider the reasons given by the city police with regard to the possible law and order problem.
