Observing that organised crime syndicates cannot survive without support from politicians and police, the Bombay High Court on Thursday asked what the state government, Shiv Sena and Revenue Minister Narayan Rane have done regarding the Vohra Committee’s report.
The Vohra Committee report had probed the nexus between organised crime syndicates, politicians and bureaucrats.
“Let people know what Shiv Sena has done on the report when it came to power,” said a division bench of Justice J.N. Patel and Justice Amjad Sayyad while hearing a plea filed by Purushottam Barde, an office bearer of the saffron party.
The judges also ordered the Home department to state by November 26 whether they have identified any person as mentioned in the Vohra Committee report for patronising organised crime syndicates.
Rane had claimed after the 26/11 attacks that he knew some politicians who had provided monitory and logistical support to the Pakistani terrorists, the plea said. The court will hear the matter on November 26.
