Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal appeared for Hardik Patel in his petition in the Supreme Court. Patel had approached the apex court after the Gujarat High Court refused to quash the sedition charges pressed against him for his statement to one Vipul Desai urging him to kill policemen instead of committing suicide.
A Bench of V Gopala Gowda and Justice Amitava Roy JJ. heard Sibal for forty-five minutes this afternoon before deciding that the case should be heard by another Bench.
