Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai files police complaint against advocate on record for making baseless, malicious information ahead of SCBA election

Published

Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai, who is contesting for the post of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President, has filed a police complaint against Kumud Lata AOR for circulating baseless and malicious information against him at Tilak Marg police station on Wednesday.

Kumud Lata AOR is said to have spread rumours around a case in which Pradeep Rai had tendered a public apology and the case was withdrawn. In their investigation, the police have asked Kumud Lata for her version/reply.  Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court refused to entertain Lata’s plea seeking cancellation of Rai’s nomination for the election to SCBA President. The elections for the SCBA office-bearers will be held on May 16, Thursday. The results will be out on May 18, Saturday.

Lata made her plea before the Bench of Justice Surya Kant and Justice KV Viswanathan. Senior Advocate Rai also appeared before the court.

Kumud Lata said Rai’s candidature should be cancelled due to a 2003 FIR against him and that Rai threatened her. Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai told the court, “There is no FIR at all. This lady called me three days back to withdraw in favour of Kapil Sibal. She mentions an FIR where the complainant has tendered a public apology and the case was withdrawn. I have already filed an FIR in Tilak Marg Police Station. IO is on the way. This has to be investigated.”

He further said, “The complainant has tendered unconditional apology in the newspaper. She is doing it at the behest of Sibal”.

During the hearing, Justice Kant said, “Please tell us, madam, what is the scope of our interference in the matter?” Lata replied, “His candidature ought to be cancelled because of his criminal antecedents. He impersonated…” Justice Viswanathan sternly asked you know the law? How is an FIR a criminal antecedent, please don’t bring all this here.

Justice Vishwanathan then asked Kumud Lata, who was making all sorts of wild allegations, if she has filed any suit and had she shown any valid grounds for disqualification.

When Lata said he cannot threaten me in court, Justice Kant said the court won’t anyone to do that. All members of the bar are respected by the court and we have been accommodating everyone

The elections for the SCBA took a divisive turn after Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal announced his candidature for the post of President in the upcoming elections with propaganda and misinformation reaching sky-high.

One such trick saw Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai even being disqualified as a voter in the elections due to a clerical error at the SCBA. The list was set right after Rai objected. And now this attempt by Kumud Lata AOR.

Six candidates are vying for the post of President of the Association: Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai, Senior Advocate Adish Chandra Aggarwala (incumbent president), Senior Advocate Priya Hingorani, Advocate Neeraj Srivastava and Advocate Tripurari Ray.

PM Modi calls for a strong government, says even enemies think 100 times before doing anything

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally in Haryana’s Ambala on Saturday and said India’s enemies think 100 times before doing anything against the country when there is a strong government at the Centre. Haryana, which has a total of 10 Lok Sabha seats, will vote in the 6th phase on May 25. In 2019 elections BJP claimed victory in all 10 seats.

PM Modi pointed out that Pakistan had been troubling India for 70 years and it had bombs in its hands. But today the situation has changed and it has begging bowl in its hands. He said when there is a strong government, enemies tremble. Addressing the election rally at Ambala the prime minister asked if a weak government could have changed the situation in Jammu & Kashmir? He recalled the times when there was a Congress government and brave mothers of Haryana used to be worried day and night. He said it has been 10 years now and all of that has stopped.

PM Modi recounted BJP government’s achievements and said they had demolished the wall of Article 370 and Kashmir started moving on the path of development. The prime minister said that a total of 17 days remain to go for 4th June.  He further added that until now in 4 phases of elections, Congress and the INDI Alliance, chaaron khaane chitt ho chuke hain. He said whatever tactics the INDI Alliance used for the country have all been beaten by the public itself.

Addressing the election rally PM Modi said Haryana is a state which has patriotism in its veins and knows anti-national forces very well. The prime minister guaranteed to the people that their dreams are his resolution. PM Modi said there are 4 pillars of Viksit Bharat – poor, youth, women and farmers and he wants to strengthen all these pillars in such a way that the nation becomes strong.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for inciting people and dividing society through his election speeches. Kharge was addressing a press conference of the INDIA bloc, where Shiv Sena (UBT) president, Uddhav Thackeray NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar and other leaders were present.

Kharge said no prime minister before Modi has ever indulged in inciting people like he has been doing. He said the prime minister speaks about democracy repeatedly but does not adhere to the tenets of democracy. Responding to PM Modi’s statement that the Congress will bulldoze the Ram mandir in Ayodhya and also restore Article 370 if the INDIA bloc is voted to power Kharge said, they have never used a bulldozer on anyone. The Congress president said PM Modi has the habit of lying and inciting people about things which Congress will never do or the things that are impossible to be implemented.

Kharge further added that he is not answerable to Modi and the Congress will implement what they have promised in their election manifesto. He accused PM Modi of creating divisions wherever he went he tries to create division, speaks of dividing society. Kharge further added that PM Modi had described the Congress manifesto as Muslim League manifesto, but now he is calling it as a Maoist manifesto.

The Congress President assured that reservation has been enshrined in the Constitution which will continue and nobody can touch it. Speaking at the press conference Thackeray said, Achche din are coming from June 4 (when Lok Sabha election results will be declared) when INDIA bloc-led government will come to power at the centre. Thackeray pointed out PM Modi calls Shiv Sena (UBT) as the nakli (fake) Shiv Sena, and there is a possibility that tomorrow he may call RSS as nakli Sangh.

The Delhi Police on Saturday arrested Bibhav Kumar, aide and former personal secretary of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in connection with the alleged assault of AAP MP Swati Maliwal. The development comes 2 days after Delhi Police registered a case against Kumar following a complaint by Maliwal. In her complaint, Maliwal accused Arvind Kejriwal’s personal assistant of repeatedly slapping her and kicking her in the stomach and pelvic area when she went to the Delhi Chief Minister’s residence on May 13.

On Saturday, AAP minister Atishi claimed the BJP made Swati Maliwal file the FIR using an old ACB case as leverage. She said Anti Corruption Bureau of the BJP has filed a case against Swati Maliwal regarding the illegal recruitment of contractual employees in Delhi Commission for Women. A chargesheet has been filed and the time of conviction is coming and the AAP party said that it believes that Swati Maliwal is being included in the conspiracy by using this case. Atishi said how the entire machinery of BJP, from Delhi Police to the MHA is working, was seen yesterday in Tis Hazari Court.

On Friday, the Delhi Police took Swati Maliwal to the Delhi chief minister’s residence to recreate the crime scene. Her statement was recorded before a magistrate at the Tis Hazari court. A counter-complaint has been filed by Bibhav Kumar with the Civil Lines police station in which he alleged that Maliwal had forcefully and unauthorised entered the Delhi CM’s residence.

 He also claimed that the former Delhi Commission for Women chairperson tried to create a ruckus and assault him. Kejriwal’s aide also claimed that the Rajya Sabha MP intended to harm the AAP chief and he strongly objected. Bibhav Kumar said a copy of the FIR has been sent to all the media houses by the BJP but BJP’s police are saying that they cannot give it to the accused.
