SC begins hearing plea to reopen Gandhi’s murder

New Delhi: Responding to a plea on the reopening of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination probe, the Supreme Court today asked senior advocate Amarendra Sharan to assist the court as an amicus curiae in the case.

The court asked several questions on the plea to reopen a probe into Mahatma Gandhis assassination.

Dr Pankaj Phadnis – founder of a modern-day ‘Abhinav Bharat’ – has filed a PIL in the Supreme Court, questioning the belief that three bullets were fired at the Mahatma. He said four shots were fired and it is the fourth bullet that took his life. An earlier petition of Phadnis seeking reopening of the case was dismissed by a high court earlier.
