NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will hear a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking suo motu contempt action against former home minister P. Chidambaram for perjury and misleading the apex court and the Gujarat High Court on alleged LeT links of Ishrat Jahan.

Ishrat Case: SC to Hear Plea for Quashing Action Against Gujarat Cops 

Ishrat Jahan was killed by the Gujarat Police in 2005.

The PIL has sought direction that all criminal proceedings and actions taken against Gujarat Police personnel and others involved in the death of Ishrat Jahan be declared unconstitutional. 

Have you filed the petition, asked the apex court bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit petitioner advocate M.L. Sharma. Let the petition be listed in due course, the judges said. 

Basing his PIL on the deposition of Pakistani-American terrorist-turned-approver David Coleman Headley that Ishrat Jahan was an LeT activist, Sharma also sought "proper compensation" to the Gujarat personnel who were prosecuted for her killing.
