    Srinivas BV, National President of Indian Youth Congress, has approached the Supreme Court seeking relief in respect to the FIR registered in Assam on a sexual harassment complaint lodged by an expelled party member.

    Senior Advocate Devadatt Kamat mentioned his matter before Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud on Monday seeking urgent listing. "An opposition leader is being hounded in Assam", Kamat said. CJI agreed to list the matter on May 15.

    On May 4, a single bench of the Gauhati High Court had dismissed his petition seeking to quash the FIR. The High Court also dismissed another petition filed by Srinivas seeking anticipatory bail. A single bench of Justice Ajit Borthakur observed that there is no indication that the FIR is "politically motivated" and refused to interfere by noting that the investigation is at a nascent stage. While dismissing the petition, the bench also censured Srinivas's lawyer for suggesting that judges on the verge of retirement will pass orders favouring the government in hope of post-retirement benefits.

    The petition has been drawn by Advocate Rajesh Inamdar,
