Nagpur, Feb 21 The Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court on Friday allowed the Bhim Army to hold a meeting of its workers at Reshimbagh Ground in Nagpur on February 22, but imposed certain conditions. A division bench of Justices Sunil Shukre and Madhav Jamdar said that the petition of the Dalit outfit, seeking permission for the conclave, is allowed with conditions. Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad is scheduled to address the meeting. On Tuesday, the high court had issued notices to the Maharashtra government and the Nagpur police commissioner on the petition filed by a Bhim Army functionary. The sprawling ground is close to the headquarters of the R a s h t r i y a Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Kotwali police had earlier denied permission for the gathering, citing law and order issues. After denial of permission, the Dalit group moved the high court here. The petition, filed by Bhim Army Nagpur district chief Praful Shende through his lawyer Firdos Mirza, said the outfit had got permission from the CP and Berar Education Society, which controls the Nagpur Improvement Trustedowned ground, for the meeting. However, the Kotwali police station, under whose jurisdiction the ground falls, denied permission for the meet, citing law and order issues, the petition said.
