Bombay HC refuses to accept plea based on social media reports

Bombay HC refuses to accept plea based on social media reports

Mumbai, Nov 28 (UNI) In an interesting order, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a public interest litigation (PIL) regarding alleged unsafe waterbodies in Maharashtra, observing that Information gathered from social media cannot be part of the pleadings in a petition.
A division bench of Chief Justice DK Upadhyaya and Justice Arif Doctor during the hearing of the PIL in its oral order said: 'Information gathered from social media cannot be part of pleadings in a PIL. You (petitioner) cannot be so irresponsible while filing PILs. You are wasting judicial time'
The observation was made during the hearing in a PIL filed by advocate Ajitsingh Ghorpade claiming that every year around 1,500 to 2,000 people lose their lives in unsafe water bodies in Maharashtra.
