Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Monday extended civil rights activist Gautam Navlakha's interim protection from arrest till Friday in the Bhima Koregaon caste violence case.

An FIR was lodged against Navlakha and others in January 2018 after the Elgar Parishad held on December 31, 2017 allegedly triggered violence at Koregaon Bhima in Pune district the next day.

Navlakha and the other accused were booked under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and the Indian Penal Code. As the matter came up for hearing on Monday, his counsel Yug Chaudhary told the court he needed time to file a reply as he received the police's affidavit in response to Navlakha's pre-arrest bail plea on Monday itself.

Justice P D Naik then posted the matter for hearing on December 6, and extended interim relief granted to Navlakha till the next date of hearing. In September, a division bench of the high court had refused to quash the case against Navlakha, following which he had approached the Supreme Court.

The apex court, while extending the interim protection till November 12, had directed Navlakha to approach the concerned sessions court in Pune seeking pre-arrest bail. On November 12, the Pune sessions court had rejected Navlakha's anticipatory bail plea and also refused to extend the protection granted to him by the apex court, after which he moved HC on November 13.
