New Delhi, April 5 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Friday declined to entertain a plea by Sri Ram Sene leader Pramod Muthalik challenging the extension of the ban on his entry into Goa by the state government.
The bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Navin Sinha declined to entertain Muthalik’s plea and asked him to move the High Court.
The Goa government had banned the entry of Muthalik in 2014 and the orders prohibiting his entry were extended every 60 days.
Muthalik’s Sri Ram Sene had caused outrage across the country after some of its members had stormed into a pub in Karnataka’s Mangaluru city on January 24, 2009, and assaulted the women and men there alleging that they were insulting the country’s culture and values.
Later all of them were acquitted by a Mangaluru court citing lack of evidence.
