A bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice P Sathasivam asked the counsel for the petitioner, ''Is it the job of this court to tell police to arrest a particular person under a particular law? Can this court entertain such petition?'' NGO Yuva Shakti had filed a petition seeking directions from the apex court for arresting Raj Thackeray under MCOCA for indulging in divisive and regional politics, threatening national security and integrity.
However, the court was not impressed. The court permitted the counsel to withdraw the petition as the court was going to dismiss the same.
