Another PIL has been filed against Congress leader and former Maharashtra revenue minister Narayan Rane, seeking that he disclose the information about politicians' alleged links with the terrorists.
Rane, who was recently suspended by the party, had alleged in a press conference on December 6 that terrorists who attacked Mumbai last month got "logistical and financial" support from some politicians without revealing any names.
Purushottam Barde, Solapur district president of Shiv Sena, on Wednesday filed PIL in the Bombay High Court, saying that court should direct Rane to reveal more information regarding this.
Also, action should be taken against Rane if the information proved to be false, PIL says.
It also mentions Rane's another allegation that former chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh had links with a person connected with fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim. Rane should be forced to reveal information regarding this too, it says.
Earlier Dr Avisha Kulkarni, a social activist, had filed PIL with identical demands following Rane's allegations.
Both PILs might come up for hearing on Thursday.
Rane, a former Shiv Sena man, fell out with Congress leadership after being denied chief minister's post when Vilasrao Deshmukh resigned.
