New Delhi. Kerala government The Supreme Court has moved the Supreme Court challenging the High Court’s order dismissing a plea seeking withdrawal of a criminal case registered in connection with the uproar in the state assembly during the Congress-led UDF rule in 2015. The petition challenging the March 12 order of the Kerala High Court is scheduled to come up for hearing on June 29 before a bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud. An unprecedented sight was witnessed in the state assembly on March 13, 2015.

Apart from gathering near the Speaker’s podium during the commotion, the computer, keyboard and mic kept on the desk of the presiding officer were also allegedly damaged by the LDF members. A case was registered against the then LDF MLAs and others in this connection. The Kerala government, in its petition in the apex court, has claimed that the high court did not hold that the alleged incident took place while the assembly was in session and no criminal case could be filed without the permission of the speaker. The petition, filed through advocate G Prakash, said, “It is wrong to file an FIR by the Secretary of the Legislative Assembly without the approval of the Speaker, therefore, the application filed under Section 321 of CrPC is admissible. This section deals with withdrawal of case by the prosecution.
