Supreme Court dismisses PIL against Anna Hazare

By Pti

Anna Hazare
New Delhi, May 4: The Supreme Court on Friday, May 4 dismissed a PIL seeking action against Anna Hazare and his team members for allegedly showing disrespect to the national flag during his agitation for the Lokpal Bill last year.

A bench of justices BS Chauhan and JS Khehar rapped the petitioner, Chennai-resident LK Venkat for filing the PIL.

The petitioner had alleged that during the agitation in December last year, the associates of Harare had shown disrespect to the national flag and the government had failed to take any action despite a complaint filed against them.

"During the course of the agitation, Hazare and his associates had flown the national flag at half mast in public and also mutilated and defaced the flag," the petitioner alleged.

The bench, however, was not satisfied with his contention and during the hearing threatened to impose cost on the petitioner for misusing the process of PIL but it refrained from doing so and dismissed the petition.
