SC notice to Kheny on plea challenging his election

Source: Deccan Herald :-

The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to Bidar South MLA Ashok Kheny on a plea by social activist T J Abraham challenging his election to the Assembly.

A three-judge bench presided over by Chief Justice H L Dattu agreed to hear the petition and sought response from Kheny after the petitioner contended that the MLA was not an Indian citizen.

The high court had dismissed the petition filed by Abraham on September 5.



In the special leave petition, Abraham sought the MLA’s disqualification, claiming that he had obtained US citizenship and that he was not a registered voter in the electoral roll of Bidar South. Abraham also contended that Kheny obtained a voter ID by fraudulent means
