    When the 12 Fundamental Rights petitions filed against the IGP and former Defence Secretary were taken up yesterday (04) before the Supreme Court’s seven-judge bench chaired by the Chief Justice, the Attorney General raised an objection and made a special request from the court to deliver an order calling for the IGP to withdraw his affidavit as it contains baseless allegations.

    The police chief, in his affidavit, has alleged that the Attorney General and the President are in an attempt to scheme a lawsuit against him.The Chief Justice has inquired Attorney-at-Law Viran Corea, who represents the IGP, whether his client is willing to submit a revised affidavit.

    In response, the defendant’s counsel has told the judge bench that revising the affidavit might be detrimental to the police chief as he is facing litigation before other judicial bodies over the same incident. However, he requested the court to grant him a time period to consult the IGP on the matter.
