Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Apr 27 (UNI) Railway Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal President Lalu Prasad's petition, challenging a process (summon) issued against him by a local court at Manmad in Nashik district, for allegedly addressing a rally beyond the prescribed time during the 2004 Assembly polls,will come up for hearing in the Bombay High Court tomorrow.

The petition, filed by Mr Yadav through his lawyer P G Sabnis, praying to the court to quash and set aside the process and grant a stay on the proceedings pending before it, was listed for today before Justice R S Mohite.

However, it could not come up for hearing during the scheduled time for the listed matters today.

It would now come up tomorrow.

Mr Yadav has challenged the process issued by the judicial magistrate first class, Manmad, directing him to appear before the court on April 29 in response to a criminal complaint filed by an executive magistrate, who had named the Union Minister as one of the speakers during the rally on October 7, 2004, at Chhatriya High School, Manmad, in which permission for the use of loudspeaker was between 1500 hrs and 1800 hrs.

However, according to the complaint, the meeting allegedly concluded at 1827 hrs, and the loudspeaker was used 27 minutes beyond the prescribed time.
