The Bombay high court on Wednesday asked the state government to file an affidavit within two weeks with details about recovering losses from perpetrators who damaged public and private property in a riot outside Azad Maidan last year.

The court was hearing a public interest litigation filed by journalists Sanket Satope and Uday Joshi, who pointed out how the state government and police commissioner failed to initiate measures to recover losses from the organisers of a protest outside Azad Maidan on August 11, 2012.

The petitioners alleged that the state is following double standards in dealing with organisers Raza Academy and others. They urged the court to direct the authorities to expeditiously complete their inquiry and proceedings for recovering losses worth over Rs 2 crore.
