    New Delhi, Dec 4: The Supreme Court will examine the chargesheet filed by the Pune Police in the Bhima-Koregaon case. Under examination would be the decision by the police to invoke the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against the five activists who were arrested in June for their alleged links with the naxalites and the role played in the Bhima-Koregaon violence.

    The Supreme Court had however stayed the order of the High Court. The activists represented by their counsels argued that there was a fundamental flaw as the IO had first moved the application. When it was learnt that the IO could not have moved the application, a similar plea was filed by the Public Prosecutor.

    The Pune Police argued that the technical mistake in the IO filing the application was rectified by the subsequent filing by the PP.
