Satara : Adv. Gunaratna Sadavarte has been remanded in police custody for four days by the Satara District and Sessions Court.
Gunaratna Sadavarte had made an offensive statement on a news channel regarding Maratha reservation. A case was registered against him at Satara city police station in October 2020. On that background, Satara police had arrested Sadavarte from Mumbai on Thursday. After that, when he was produced in the court friday, the 6th First Magistrate S.A. Shendge remanded Sadavarte to police custody till Monday.
Strong arguments were made by both sides during the hearing. The ruling party has demanded a 14-day police remand to investigate various issues. The trio spoke to the investigating officer and two government party lawyers. After the ruling party argued, the defense side dismissed all the issues and stated that there was no need for police custody. The two sides clashed twice during the argument.
Why was Udayan Raje defeated? As soon as the defense party raised this issue, the government party strongly objected to it. The defense withdrew the statement and apologized. Following the apology, the ruling party demanded that Sumoto be charged.
