Supreme Court asks government to clarify stand on plea against sedition law

Yesterday the Supreme Court (SC) of India granted two weeks time to the Centre government to make its clear stand on a plea challenging the constitutional validity of Section 124 A of the Indian Penal Code which penalizes sedition. The Bench of Justices U U Lalit and Ajay Rastogi deferred the hearing after solicitor general Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Central government side, sought time to file an affidavit. The Supreme court (SC) also asked attorney general KK Venugopal, who was also issued notice on the petition, to file his response on the issue. The petition has been filed by two journalists. Watch!
