Fadnavis gets SC notice for not declaring criminal cases in election affidavit

New Delhi: Supreme Court today issued a notice to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on a petition seeking his disqualification as a legislator for not disclosing two criminal cases against him in the 2014 Assembly election affidavit.

In his petition before the top court, Satish Ukey, a lawyer, said Mr Fadnavis didn’t make the mandatory disclosure of criminal cases against him.

Mr Ukey alleges that the Chief Minister concealed information on two criminal cases pending against him-one cheating and other defamation in the affidavit.
