Metropolitan Magistrate Purshotam Pathak allowed Vibhor Anand, a law student, to lead pre-summoning evidence in support of his allegations while dismissing his plea seeking registration of FIR for the offence of sedition against Bhushan, Ramdev and Kejriwal.
"The application for seeking a direction to produce the accused before the court and the application for seeking a direction to seize the entire objectionable material/evidence against the accused is dismissed. The present application under section 156(3) CrPC (for directions for registration of FIR) is treated as a complaint under section 200 CrPC (examination of complainant).
"The complainant is granted liberty to lead pre-summoning evidence. Put up for pro-summoning evidence," the MM ordered.
