Panaji, July 10: The Goa bench of the Bombay High Court today issued notices to top central and state officials over BJP party meeting to honour Chief Amit Shah inside the Dabolim International airport premises on July 1.
The court issued notices to the Secretary of Civil Aviation Ministry and the Goa Chief Secretary, among others, seeking to
submit a detail explanation within a span of three weeks.
The bench chaired by Justice F.M. Reis and Justice Nutan Sardessai came with this decision following a petition by a city
advocate, who had alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party meeting was held at the Goa airport, which is under the supervision
of an Indian Naval Base.
The petitioner had alleged that the party was illegal and conducted in contravention of laws.
“Notices have also been issued to Goa Director General of Police, Goa Airport Director and Deputy Commandant of Central
Industrial Security Force asking them about how the meeting was conducted at an airport,” petitioner Aires Rodrigues told media in Panaji on Monday.
The petition sought a thorough probe into the manner in which the meeting was allowed to be conducted at the airport which
functions out of an Indian Naval Base INS Hansa, the petitioner stated.
