Bombay High Court seeks explanation from police officer in plea challenging illegal detention of Mumbai lawyer for 35 minutes

The Bombay High Court on Friday sought explanation from a police officer accused of illegally detaining a Mumbai lawyer who claimed to have visited the police station on behalf of his client.
A Bench of Justices SS Shinde and NJ Jamadar asked the Public Prosecutor to get instructions into the actions of the police inspector who was added as respondent in the plea.

The public prosecutor suggested that the concerned police officer could remain present in court for the next hearing. 

The Court agreed with the suggestion and passed a direction to ensure that the officer remains present for the next hearing.

The petition filed through advocates Aniesh Jadhav and Nikhil Maneshinde stated that he was representing his client, Narsamma Gudimella in a matter pertaining to their rights as slum dwellers.
