The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Maharashtra government to submit the charge sheet filed against arrested rights activists in connection with the Koregaon-Bhima violence case.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it wanted to see the 'charges' against the accused and asked senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the Maharashtra government, to submit the charge sheet by December 8. The charge sheet had been filed by the state police in a special court in Pune.

The bench, also comprising Justices S.K. Kaul and K.M. Joseph, was hearing an appeal of the state government against a Bombay High Court order refusing to extend the time limit of 90 days for filing the probe report in the case.

The bench has now posted the appeal for further hearing on December 11.

Earlier, the apex court had stayed the Bombay High Court order.

Pune police had arrested lawyer Surendra Gadling, Nagpur University professor Shoma Sen, Dalit activist Sudhir Dhawale, activist Mahesh Raut and Kerala native Rona Wilson in June for their alleged links with Maoists under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
