Sessions judge KD Vadane will be hearing the Pune police’s plea requesting the court to grant another 90 days for submission of the chargesheet against activists Sudhir Dhawale, Rona Wilson, Mahesh Raut, advocate Surendra Gadling and professor Shoma Sena, who were arrested in connection with suspected Maoist links in June.

The probe completes ninety days on Monday and the city police are yet to file the chargesheet before the court. If the court does not extend the chargesheet filing deadline for another ninety days , then it would be easy for the accused to file their bail applications before the competent court, their lawyers said.

The Pune police had submitted before the court that they needed around 90 more days to file the chargesheet. The application will be heard by the court on Sunday at 10 am. District government pleader Ujjwala Pawar had requested the court that the hearing must take place at 4 pm, but defence counsel advocate Sanjay Nahar and Rahul Deshmukh objected her plea.

They requested the court that the accused must get time to study the application and the hearing be held on Monday. The prosecution retorted that the investigating officials will have to remain present in the high court on Monday and hence, the court took the decision to hear the matter on Sunday.
