A division bench of the Bombay High Court in Goa on Monday issued notices to the Secretary of Ministry of Civil Aviation, Chief Secretary of Goa, Director General of Police, the Airport Director and the Deputy Commandant of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), seeking thorough probe into BJP National President Amit Shah's July 1 public meeting at Dabolim International Airport in Goa.
The court bench, comprising Justices F M Reis and Nutan Sardessai, issued notices on a petition filed by social activist advocate Aires Rodrigues, demanding an inquiry.
The petitioner sought directions to ensure that the rule of law was upheld by holding an inquiry for fixing the responsibility and taking action in accordance with law against the organisers and those responsible for the public meeting held within the precincts of the airport.
According to reports, the state BJP had organised a political meeting to welcome Shah in the high security limits of the Goa's Dabolim Airport on July 1.
BJP leaders from Goa, including Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, had received Shah on July 1 and escorted him to a makeshift podium where he spoke for 15 minutes, praising GST and other measures taken by the Central government.
