In a breather for BJP President Amit Shah, the Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea by social activist and former bureaucrat Harsh Mander challenging his discharge in the alleged staged killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh.
A bench of Justice S.A. Bobde and Justice Ashok Bhushan rejected the plea by Mander, who had challenged the Bombay High Court order rejecting his plea against the discharge of Amit Shah on the grounds of the former bureaucrat's locus standi to do so.
While rejecting the plea by Mander, the bench said: "Where a person genuinely aggrieved moves the court, it takes a different colour, and another person who is not even remotely connected (moves the court)," it takes a different dimension.
