Pramod Mutalik moves SC challenging ban on entry in Goa


New Delhi, Aug 25: Sri Ram Sena chief Pramod Mutalik on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court challenging the Bombay High court order banning his entry into Goa to maintain peace and harmony in the state.

He has sought stay of the order of the Goa bench of the High Court which on July 2 had refused to interfere with the prohibitory order imposed on him and his associates by the state police.

The right-wing leader also questioned the prohibitory order passed under section 144 of the CrPC contending that it was illegal and repeatedly passed without giving him a hearing.

He has sought ex-parte permission to visit Goa. Challenging the high court order claiming that it was violation of his fundamental rights, he has claimed that it "clearly erred in law and in facts of the case".

The petition said the repetitive prohibitory orders passed by the Goa government and District Magistrates of South and North Goa are "illegal and without jurisdiction".

The first order restraining Mutalik from entering the state was issued by the district magistrates of North Goa and South Goa on August 19 last year for 60 days. The orders were subsequently extended further.
