The Bombay High Court on Monday reserved its order in a plea filed by activist Anand Teltumbde seeking to quash an FIR against him for his alleged involvement in the Bhima Koregaon violence.Senior counsel Mihir Desai, appearing for Mr. Teltumbde, said, “All the letters mentioned by the prosecution in the case were not found in his house in Goa as no one was there and the house was locked. The police could not raid or seize anything from there. In fact, we can seek sanction to prosecute the officers for defamation.”He said such stringent provisions of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act have been levied upon Mr Teltumbde where there is no provision of anticipatory bail and getting a bail is very difficult.Assistant Public Prosecutor Aruna Kamat Pai relied upon the charge sheet filed against Shoma Sen, Surendra Gadling, Rona Wilson and Sudhir Dhawale, the others who were arrested in connection with the violence, and said letters have been found on Mr. Wilson and Mr. Gadling’s laptops highlighting a role played by Mr. Teltumbde in the violence.Ms. Pai mentioned four letters and one page of accounts details that indicated that Mr. Teltumbde was gathering support and success for the event at Bhima Koregaon.She read out a letter allegedly written by Mr. Teltumbde that said, “The agitation at Bhima Koregaon has been very successful except for the death of a few and Dalit sentiments are clearly against the BJP and therefore we must keep up the pressure.” Ms. Pai presented a sealed envelope with letters to the court and said one of them written by Mr. Teltumbde’s brother, Milind mentions the role played by his brother. At this Mr. Desai intervened and said, “Do they want to implicate me or find the truth?”After hearing all the arguments, a Division Bench of Justices B.P. Dharmadhikari and S.V. Kotwal said they, “want to discuss the matter” and reserved their order.
