SC junks plea challenging appointment of observers for LS polls in WB

The Supreme Court has refused to entertain a plea challenging the appointment of two retired bureaucrats as special observer and central police observer in West Bengal for Lok Sabha polls.

A vacation bench, comprising Justices Arun Mishra and MR Shah, said it was not inclined to entertain the petition as polling is already over.

The bench, however, granted liberty to petitioner Ramu Mandi, who is contesting polls as an independent candidate from Barrackpore constituency of West Bengal, to approach the Calcutta High Court.
